Its small enough that you'll recognize or know a lot of people, but big enough that everyone is not in your business. The smaller class sizes are a huge advantage because you are able to get more time with the professor when you need help.

    Western Carolina University, the best underrated college in North Carolina. Wake up to beautiful scenery, and walk to class, where your class sizes will be small, you will make the best friends, and enjoy studying by the tower. Western Carolina University is your school, if you enjoy the outdoors, want to be taught by teachers who have PHDS, in a class setting of thirty or less, and you are okay with not living in a city.

    WCU is very in tune with nature and helping the environment. Students here are easy to get along with because they are diverse. The smaller classes makes it much easier to get along with your professors and to get help when it's necessary.

    Western Carolina takes care of its students in a timely and efficient manner. This University takes pride in its location and environment. I have attended three universities in total and Western Carolina University is by far the best.

    Western Carolina University is perfect for students seeking a small town environment. The location, nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina, is nothing less than beautiful and the majority of faculty and students are very kind. Attending Western Carolina is very rewarding and one of the best decisions I have made.

    Western Carolina University is the place to go--whether you are an introvert or an extravert, you will fit right in. WCU is exquisite in its environment, choices of food, teachers, and fellow students. This place became a second home to me, and I hope it does the same for anyone else who decides to attend.

    I absolutely love this university. There are so many opportunities given to you to help you excel and the professors are more than happy to help you do better if you are struggling. The campus is not very big which makes it so much easier to get connected with people and get involved.

    Great School! Small class sizes make it a lot easier to learn. We also have a great view of the mountains from anywhere on campus.
