2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I applied for student aid and completed it on 4/4/2016. It took the woman in financial until 6/30/2016 to deny me of any type of financial aid or student loans. The deadline was 6/30/2016. I went to orientation on the 25th of June 2016 and she didn't bother to tell me. I turned everything they needed wasting my time as I am going through the student process. I cannot pay over 1100 in books for one semester and 6,000 for tuition and fees. The school did not bother to tell after going through this grueling process. I am disabled but that did not matter. I mean, the financial lady named Ariene was the one who was not very helpful for me getting aid but causing more trouble and heartache wanting to finish my degree. I made mistakes in the past. I have 106 credit hours and did very badly but now I was ready to make the straight A's I always did in high school. I am depressed and very unhappy that I had to go through so much and not even chance to finish a degree in Accounting. I guess it just wasn't meant to be at all. I am so disappointed in the school leading me on to think I would be a part of the WVSU college experience. I don't make that much for tuition and fees a year much less to take of myself. Very unhappy with Ariene. She was very unfriendly and I am not used to being spoken to as I am stupid.

Overall Experience: I love this university. People here are a different breed; professors are professional, yet kind. The food sucks, but they're working on that.

Overall Experience: The institution is accredited, which is a Godsend, because I want to go on to become a teacher. The education program is foremost in the State, and the professors have contacts even in the State Legislature.

Campus Housing: Housing here is sort of bleh. The Resident Directors are kind of forcing everyone to live in Keith Hall, the newest addition to housing on campus, and are pushing people out of the older dorms...which is what people want in the first place.

Greek Life: WVSU is a historically black college, so the Greek organizations here are mostly black and revolve solely around the Divine Nine. As far as I know, WVSU has no white organizations, and while racial lines aren't strictly adhered to, it's still a rare thing to see a white person accepted into a black organization. It's just not commonplace, and nobody questions it. And, given WVSU's position as the quote-unquote "whitest HBCU in the country," Greek life sort of takes a back seat...unless it comes to parties. That is where Greek life shines. As far I know, there's only one Greek house, and it isn't even on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are certainly moving on up at WVSU. The football team has finally broken through a terrible record, and our other teams are doing quite well--like they have been all along. The university honestly places the most emphasis on our football team, and sort of neglects any of the others. It's quite sad.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: WVSU is definitely diverse. The current struggle on campus is finding a happy medium between black and white students and culture, and bridging the divide between on-campus residents and commuters. Some of the events are a little too much, and when we do have one, it just seems to be at inopportune times. Also, it's nothing like a modern, progressive college campus, and the "progressive energy" our Vice President of Student Affairs speaks of is virtually non-existent except in the board rooms where the boosters convene. Yes, I am slightly bitter; but I love this campus. I love the history and the diversity, and the different type of college experience discovered here. I might even say that coming here was a blessing in disguise, although every blessing has its burden, too.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the teachers are not really that great when it comes to teaching.

3 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I only play football and the team is okay.
