    Campus Safety

    We have a great security staff who routinely do fire drills and other safety expos for the staff and students

    Great for these types of students

    Older students are not an uncommon sight at WVNCC. Fresh out of high school? WVNCC has a great mix of traditional and non-traditional students. Not sure what your goal is as far as a degree? Work with your advisor to narrow the field based on your skills and interests.

    Bang for the buck

    As I have said, at WVNCC there are several options open for your scheduling comfort. There are tutors available, along with your professors, and a helpful staff that actually know what they are talking about! My expirience at WVNCC has been amazing! And I really would stay at WVNCC if they offered a 4 year degree program in accounting.

    What to do for fun

    WVNCC Wheeling is located near the Wesbanco Arena and the riverfront. There are always events in both places, free concerts and free movie nights, Monster trucks, job fairs, hockey and basketball games, etc.

    Food and Dining

    There is a small area of the student lounge where food is prepared and sold. Not a great menu, but the food is good and you can order it any way you want it. There are vending machines in evey building that offer sodas, water, juices, sandwiches, and a variety of foods that can be microwaved. (Which are also provided in the vending areas)

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms at WVNCC, but there are plenty of apartment complexes and town houses within walking distance.

    Academic Rigor

    There is a real community feeling at WVNCC. Your success is as important to the staff as it is to you. If you have a problem in a class, or a problem at home, the staff will do what they can to help keep you on track in your classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you have questions, whether they concern financial aid, scheduling, or needing help with assignments; just ask! The staff is 100% interested in helping you! If you can't find a class that fits into your schedule, take a look at all of the courses WVNCC provides on-line and in the evening,

    In three sentences

    The financial aid office is staffed with friendly people who know their stuff! The instructors are flexible and really interested in helping YOU to succeed! If there was a bachelors program at WVNCC, I would continue my education there.
