scheduling classes at WCU is very difficult because there are way too many students for the amount of spots that they offer for required classes. You have to have some sort of priority scheduling to get the classes that you need the semester that you need them, especially if you're a science major. There are a lot of really good teachers here, but there are some that just don't teach. The math department is terrible, the only reason I passed Calc is because I had a good tutor. Extra curricular activities are ok, but not all of them are serious about getting stuff done. The traditional housing isn't bad, I recommend the south campus apartment complex if you're an upperclassmen or transfer student. The party scene isn't all its cracked up to be, and the only parties I keep going to are at my friend's apartment where I know most of the people there. Overall not a bad school but not the best. To succeed and have a good job when you graduate you really have to use all the resources here and put in alot of effort.
