I'm very happy I chose West Chester.Quite Bright
I'm very happy I chose West Chester. I'm a first year business student and I'm very satisfied with the business program. It is AACSB accredited and the professors are good and the classes are CHALLENGING. However, The general ed. classes outside the business curriculum are EASY.

Social life is what you make of it. If you're not involved in any clubs, community service, etc, then you're social life will be poor. Opportunities are there for you if you so choose to take them.

The people here are for the most part pretty.
Great education for the price.
Location is great, its in the town of West Chester, which is very quaint. And you're only 35 mins from Philly.

The only thing i don't like about WC is the campus looks pretty boring.
Overall I give the school an A-

So I don't know a whole lot aboutAverageCommunications
So I don't know a whole lot about WCU because I'm just a freshman, and its only winter break. But so far I love it here! and I honestly can't wait to go back. I've made great friends, and the classes that I've taken were good so far. West Chester is a good school, especially for Education, and I've heard good things about the Communications, and Nursing Departments. There's literally always something to do on campus, always something going on in the student union, so if someone says they're bored its just them. The campus is really nice, pretty clean, and the town is really nice too! Usually pretty safe, but don't be na?ve, things can still happen late at night. WC is a party school, and so if you're into that, there's always a party to go to. Residence halls, I live on called Tyson and its one of the best older ones on campus. I actually like the traditional dorms, it gives you better chance to get to know people, and no offense to the new dorms, but our are much more fun :) West Chester is a good school, with great stuff to offer, and I hope my review has helped you make your decision to come here!

West Chester is the perfect size school, notBrightKinesiology
West Chester is the perfect size school, not too big or too small. The campus is close together and easy to navigate. Everyone I know loves it here, and the people are very nice and it's easyto make friends. There are parties nearly every night, but there are also other things to do at night. The town is a few blocks away and it is great to walk around on a sunny day.
