3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus crime mainly circulates around alcohol. That's about all.

3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

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

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: When I was looking for a college dorms were a big part of my consideration. Keith hall is the best dorms I have ever seen. They are spacious and clean and they are just overall fantastic.

Overall Experience: I love just about everything about West Virginia State University except for the financial aid department, they seem to loose things a lot.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus crime is fairly low. Simple vandalism is the biggest issue. Personal safety isn't a huge concern here. There are certified police officers employed as security officers, and they have a 2 minute response time, so most people feel very safe.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors, class sizes, and quality of courses are wonderful. The variety of courses are decent, but many require tedious prerequisites.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Student career prospects and the value of a degree from this school are the same as from other schools, it all depends upon the degree you obtain. For my own degree, biology/pre-vet, career services on campus is useless.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love dorm life on campus. It was easy to request a room with 2 other people I already knew, and the room is great. It's pretty well spaced, with private sectors, but a shared common room. It has nice handicap accomendations, as well.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not really aware of how Greek life affects my campus. Most of the Greek life is focused in dance and step. They host fundraiser dances occasionally, but I don't know what the money goes toward. There is no Greek housing available on campus.
