I hate it here because of social work professors who are bullies. Really. They even bully each other. It's so bad that a mediator was brought in to address social work professors who bullied other social work professors.
WCU is an amazing school. They may not be on the same level as the Ivy League schools or NC State, but that is because they are a smaller school. The tuition is getting more expensive but that is because they are trying to improve the campus in all aspects, from teachers to living facilities they are looking to create a better environment. There have been some problems on campus but there are problems on every single college campus across the country. We have a wide variety of race and color here at western and except all no matter what. If you go to Western you are family to everyone else there. All of the professors are there to help you and teach you. I have not met one professor that was not willing to help. The people that live in Cullowhee ( not the college students) do not have a problem with any of the students and are actually glad that they chose western to attend college. I highly recommend Western to anybody going into Music, Art, Criminal Justice, or general Education. These majors have some of the top staff in the state. Especially in Criminal Justice. The Criminal Justice department has the number one teaching staff in North Carolina. If you are looking for a college look into coming here. You will be accepted into the family when you first show up for open house.
“This school is a really good school toQuite BrightAnthropology
This school is a really good school to go to if you are into outdoor activities. Once a week me and some friends with go on a day trip which usually consists of hiking or finding cute little surrounding towns. There is lots to do as far as outdoor activities go. I love the area, but I strongly dislike the actual university and the student body. I thought when I came to WCU I would be rid of all the petty high school drama...but to be honest with you WCU is so much worse when it comes to high school drama. The students are very closed-minded and all hang out in their own cliques. Someone is always taking poorly about someone else. The gossip is awful...you can't sneeze without half the student body assuming you sneezed because you have an STD or something ridiculous like that. Also the school really does not care about you as an individual unless you are in greek like. So I suggest being in greek life so you don't feel left out by your peers, or faculty. It's a rather sad thing that happens actually. WCU is also a very racist school. The N word is thrown around more than I care to admit. I actually had a friend who threw a bible out his window at a gay boy once. WCU is a good school, if you are a white, republican, greek who loves being outside... but if not please don't waste your time. I wish I would have transferred before I hit my senior year.
