    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.

    Its a relatively cheap university, especially for the one-on-one you can get with professors. You can not put a price on that. The teachers really love their job and treat you like a person, not like a child. They also offer free tutoring for any class.

    Considering West Liberty is a University I don't consider the tuition to be too outrageously priced. The worst part about attending school here is that each semester the school tacks on unnecessary fees to your account so your price for schooling is rarely ever the same semester to semester.

    West Liberty keeps taking more and more fees onto my tuition making it very complicated for me to continue my education. Most fees are for the buildings going up and use of building they already have that I have never and will never need to step foot in. What a disgrace to rip of a struggling collage student like that.
