The West Chester University of Pennsylvania is the largest institution in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. U.S. News & World Report lists WCUPA as #19 in Top Public Schools. Its Center for International Programs organizes nearly 700 exchange and study abroad programs with partner institutions, including Guizhou University in China. Business, education, and health professions are the top fields of study for undergraduates.
There is a place for everyone at West Chester. It is a great location, a great price, and a great community. I honestly have never met anyone who doesn't love it here.
West Chester University is an interesting blend of the urban and suburban. The school while in the shadow of the Philadelphia metropolitan area stands alone as its own entity and treats the community as such. The school has a somewhat diverse yet separate student body that leaves many satisfied and many not sure how to feel.
