After West Virginia University

I completed my Master in Legal Study at WVU and I am currently working toward my Master in Special Education. I really like that I can take all my classes online since I live 2 hrs from the college and would not be able to attend if I had to physically go to the college. What I don't like is many of the programs (Masters level) do not have you taking courses that will transfer into another program therefore each degree you have to take the entire scheduled classes for that degree (from my experience) which is very expensive and after getting all the loans to pay for the college there is no way of ever getting a job to pay the loans off in a timely manner (a couple years).

This is the most beautiful campus we have seen to date. The faculty, students, buildings, everything about it was top notch. The friendly feel of the town, the easy commute from dorm to classrooms, the Mountainlair are all beyond our expectations. We loved the picturesque views, the beautiful mountains and the variety of amenities!
