3 College Student

Greek Life: ya know if we had more parties to relieve the stress of the week. I would be happy.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My courses in Recreational Therapy have been challenging but very rewarding. My class size is medium sized because you have to apply to get into the program. I will basically be with my classmates until we graduated because most are at the same level of completion.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My program at Western is the best for Recreational Therapy in North Carolina.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally have never felt in danger on campus. There are blue safety poles all over campus that when you press the button, it calls the police.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus, however, the room that I stayed in was quite small. I am going to be living off campus for the 2016-17 school year.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: I personally am not in a sorority, however, my roommate is and I have attended many functions with her. Greek life is known for volunteering in the community as well as being a home for students who want to have a big support system on campus.

5 College Junior

Athletics: There is so much school spirit at Western. Even when not at sporting events you hear people yelling "GO CATS!"

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school. At Western, there is so much to do even though it is a small town. There are always activities happening on campus for students. I also love the education I am receiving, pushing myself to be the best I can be.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus knowing that the campus police are always doing their job. I like the fact that we have to use our cards to unlock the door to our dorm building.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses offered are pretty diverse. Learning is not based on just "memorizing" information, but using it in the real world.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Career services is very helpful. I have went to them for help with my resume writing and they went above and beyond. They are also involved with many other behind the scenes events on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus helps you to connect with many of the students. It helps you to stay involved with campus activities and community service. The dorms are pretty average and it is quite convenient to just be able to walk a couple of minutes to the nearest classroom.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a big deal at WCU. They do a lot for the community and organize many events that we can all participate in. Greeks at our school are just a part of a big family.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I personally am not involved with the athletics at my school but WCU athletes perform at their best and have fun in the process. School spirit is a big deal here and everyone has fun with it.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Western is unlike any other school I have visited. The atmosphere is is just amazing. I love attending WCU and I love the people there. We have had so much fun going to the campus activities this past year and I can't wait to go back.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Western Carolina is a beautiful school with a great atmosphere

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There are camera everywhere. There are police boxes so if you ever feel unsafe someone will come and walk you to your room or wherever you want to go. police is always around campus and the areas are well lit so there is never a time people don't feel unsafe.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The courses are very intriguing they help get a better understanding of the course and helps a lot in the future.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Most of the programs here are very helpful so when it is time to graduate most people receive jobs and they continue on with that job for years to come.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The food choices that are not in the cafe, so like the fast food is the better choice that the up stairs cafe. They always have the same food so nothing ever changes.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek Life is a big part of campus. They allow you to be you and won't change you to be anyone else. There are some that are the typical groups that make t seem to be in the movies but they school limits that so that everyone can have fun and not feel ashamed.
