    you get what you pay for-- lol. it's insanely cheap, so what can you really expect? i have to mention the fact that west liberty is under the microscope right now for illegally charging credit-overage fees. apparently they've been doing it for years and it is illegal. i'm not a tad bit surprised. also, if you were unaware, we just got a new president because the last guy was caught embezzling. the new president is awesome though, and he is an angel for trying to dig this university out of the hole it was negligently thrown into by the guy before him.

    Education is very good and yet the university is one of the cheapest in the US. You will have to sacrifice your night life though but finishing college without getting into a huge debt will worth it.

    It's a really good price for in state considering the food options amd good academics. Its not worth it to me for out of state which is expensive. That is unless you are playing a sport.
