I love it! Not only is Western Carolina University located in one of the most beautiful places in North Carolina, but the school itself is so clean and well kept. The staff and student population is very welcoming allowing newcomers to find a sense of home immediately. Football games are a blast with the combination of the roaring student section and "The Pride of The Mountain," Western Carolina band. All in all, everything about the school compliments itself, the location, student body, and the devoted staff.
