The University of Charleston is a good school,BrightBiology
The University of Charleston is a good school, but only if you want to go to high school for another 4 years. The professors are friendly and do want to help you, but they cannot teach which is surprising. There is NOTHING to do for activities. Most students are commuters or from West Virginia so they always go home. The food in the CT and Dining Hall is AWFUL. Never mix it up, always the same gross food.

Question
As an out of state student, the UniversityQuite BrightPublic Policy
As an out of state student, the University of Charleston was not my first pick. After spending the last three years here, however, I cannot imagine being anywhere else. The professors are extremely supportive and will go entirely out of their way to make sure you succeed. The President of the University has an open door policy and is accessible whenever you have a problem. The same goes for most of the faculty, staff, and administrators at the University, particularly the Dean of Students. She goes above and beyond to ensure the best experience possible for every student. Charleston is a very unique city and offers several events to partake in during the day and night. The organizations on campus are also very active and put on events almost every night of the week.

Question
I highly recommend the University of Charleston.Super BrilliantPolitical Science
I highly recommend the University of Charleston. I actually spent my first semester freshmen year at another college so I can compare the University of Charleston to other schools. Here, the quality in professors as well as the resources available for programs, both academic and extracurricular, are a hard combination to find. Often, schools have one or the other, but never both. The University of Charleston is situated in the capital of West Virginia and therefore is able to provide unique opportunities that other schools cannot. For instance, as a political science major, I was able to watch the opening session of the state legislature without missing classes. This enrichment exercise placed a face to the material we were studying. I was able to see what I read about in action. Other schools would have had to travel great distances and missed several classes, however, that was not so with the University of Charleston. The faculty is dedicated to enriching their students, not only lecturing and giving grades on tests. Faculty know your name and face on this campus, which is a rare thing indeed. They care about your success and do their absolute best to help you succeed.
