| I transferred in from Philadelphia, and although I was very outgoing, social and popular at my previous school, I found it much harder to connect with students at WCU. There are some really nice, kind students at WCU, but there are also a lot of snooty, uppity, self-centered, shallow, culturally ignorant students. Ugh! If I have to do another group project with them, I'm might, like oh my God, just gag myself with a spoon, or I might just spill my coffee on their UGGs .|
The good-the faculty at WCU are very well educated. They seem to take their responsibility to teach very seriously, too. They're not slackers, and most of them won't allow you to be either.
Warning!-some of the faculty innappropriately discuss student's personal and academic matters with each other.Overall, I believe that WCU offers a high quality education. There are also many great teachers there. So, if you care only about your education-I would rate this high. If you are more worried about UGGs and parties, you'll be just another clone in the crowd.

| WCU is a great school. Are there better colleges out there? Yes. However, you get a quality education at West Chester without paying a huge amount. |
The campus is beautiful and the surrounding town is great. The residence halls are average, but I hear the new ones that are opening soon are really great.
Most professors are willing to get to know their students and all are knowledgeable. The math department leaves a little to be desired. It seems that many of the math professors are experts in their areas of study, but are lacking in a good background of teaching (as an education major, this was particularly disappointing to me). There are many, many fabulous resources from the Career Development Center to the folks in Student Affairs (I may be a bit biased because I worked in both of those offices during my time there as an undergrad and in my masters program).

| WCU absolutely stonewalls their students with regards to scheduling, loans, and accounts. They screw up your schedule, deactivate your account, and then report your finances incorrectly and hold you accountable for it. The information systems are completely broken, so I've resolved to do everything completely by paper from now on. Parking is nonexistent. I've been frustrated to the point of tears simply getting my accounts straightened out. Many, many other students (10+) that I've talked to have had the same issue. Please - if WCU has screwed you over, add your review! |
