Most Helpful Review for West Chester University of Pennsylvania

The classes are challenging but most of the teachers are pretty cool and make learning fun. Although they don't baby you like most high school teachers so you need to stay on top of your work. Get on the teachers good side by going to class and by going to office hours. Also, do all homework and extra credit... it really pays off in the end!

    Parking is awful here, but not having a car makes it really difficult to get around as the nearest Walmart is in Exton. The on-campus food options get pretty boring after a while. However, the university is easy to get around and beautiful.

    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.

    Although WCU is obviously more of a music school, anything that you would like to study is supported with sound teaching and qualified professors. Granted, you may run into very few old professors that have tenure and barely teach you, and you may have to teach yourself most things when it comes to their classes. However, if you just ask the person next to you, 95% of the time, the person you asked will take the time to explain anything that confuses you.

    Has the feeling of knowing everyone while still meeting someone new everyday. The education is great, with professors who support and get to know you. There are also many opportunities like sports, clubs, religious activities, and music for students of all kinds.

    A beautiful campus filled with beautiful people all year round. Close enough to home to give you the security you want but far enough away to give you the independence you need. The consistent purple and gold propaganda brightens up the campus and gives you a real sense of ram pride.

    It is a big school that offers many opportunities for whatever direction you are looking to go. The professors are helpful, albeit sometimes they make it too easy to get good grades. It is good value for the money.
