inclusiveness is very important to this college. there are opportunities, organizations, and clubs for literally any interest and if they don't already have one, anyone can start one. also, students are very important to the professors employed here; they will go out of their ways, beyond their calls of duty, to make sure a student is understanding, attending class, and enjoying themselves.

    This college is the best college decision I made. The town is very small but there are things to do. Tennessee is only a quick 30 min drive down the mountain. The college academics are challenging (as it is UVA) and some of the best staff. The faculty knows you by name the first week of school. This is a really great school to consider if you are looking for a transition school or don't want to party and are serious about your studies.

    It is a very friendly campus where you will meet people who aspire to help you reach your goals. The college is small and under renovations, which is something that may bother some students. If you like close relationships with diverse people this is definitely the school for you.

    So far, I would give UVA-Wise an excellent rating. The staff has been incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. They let you know that they are there if you need anything.

    It is a very good college to attend if you do not want the hussle and bussle of the city. It is located in a little and relatively quite town.

    UVA Wise is a small school located in the Appalachian mountains of Southwest Virginia. The area is beautiful, but some might find small town life dull. Because of it's size the professors are able to form relationships with their students and truly interested in their success.

    The college offers a variety of degree choices at a reasonable rate compared to other colleges. The class sizes allow for a more one-on-one relationship with your professors and the people are very friendly. The overall atmosphere of the campus is very welcoming and peaceful.
