I absolutely loved WCU during my time asQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I absolutely loved WCU during my time as a student! Life in the "Whee" was full of everything that I loved. If you go here, get ready to be immersed into a world of outdoor beauty. This campus is in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains just miles away from the Appalachian Trail and wild whitewater adventures on the Nantahala River. The education here is wonderful and the faculty are all super easy to work with. If you apply yourself you'll do well. Most classes also allow a lot of collaborative work with your peers. I made friends here super easy too! Prepare yourself for some of the most wild and fun nights that you've ever had if you go here. The parties here are amazing. This school was the right fit for me and it could be the right fit for you too!

Question
Food is poor and makes me sick.Quite BrightInterior Design
Food is poor and makes me sick. I have had many experiences with faculty that make me know my mental health is not cared about. Wifi is terrible. Parking is horrible. I am horribly dissatisfied with my college experience here and would transfer is I had the money to. Unfortunately, I am stuck here. 100% do not recommend this school.

Question
This college is horrible.Not so brightBusiness - Management and Administration
This college is horrible. I went 2 years. Each semester not every class that you need for graduation is offered. So what should have taken me 2 years, will end up taking me 4 years. The advisors don't tell you when the class you are planning on taking the following semester not offered. Most of the material is extremely outdated, and the quality of the education is low. All of the professors are, no offense, country af morons.
