WVU is a big school; however, I have not met a professor who is not willing to help students outside of class. Even though there can be classrooms filled with 200 students at a time, it is very easy to get to know the professor and to work with them one-on-one to really understand the material. As long as the student is willing to work, the professor will work with them. Along with professors being a very useful resource, there are other options on campus such as tutors, study groups, and teacher assistants.

West Virginia University is like no other place in the world. Being a student there is a humbling experience and has allowed me to truly open my eyes to the world. I used to think having ambition meant going to college to grow up and have a lot of money, but I've learned from WVU that ambition is experience, knowledge, and hope for the future.» Read More
A small town with lots of opportunities. Even though, there are many students, you will run into people you know and that makes it feel like a tight niche community. The academic teachings here are quality even though it is a smaller university.» Read More
