Athletics: We are a small/medium division 1 college so sports are not the main topic on campus. We enjoy our sports, but our band is the big deal out here. Our marching band is The Pride of the Mountains and they go to the Macy's parade every year.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love WCU because it's a very picturesque campus with welcoming faculty and students. We live in the blue ridge mountain area and take great pride in our community and our college. We also have a great faculty:student ratio; the largest class I've been in was a class of 55 for general chemistry.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had for the most part great experiences with my professors. They are very friendly and help when they can. I did have one professor that I could not understand and couldn't even read his writing, so this forced me to drop the class.

Overall Experience: I am only a sophomore, so I haven't had to use the career center services on campus. I would hope though that when I graduate from WCU with an engineering degree that I will have lots of career choices and jobs lined up.

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great if you are living in one of the new dorms. The older dorms that you have to stay in as a freshman are horrible.
