My classes are very informative and they are fun. High school had so many rules that prevented a positive learning experiance. College is different, but in some classes its still the same. Many teachers push you to be on time and to always attend each class. They do everything they can to make sure you are informed on what the topic is, and encourage you to study a lot. I feel like I am really furthering my education here.

    West Virginia State University is a fair choice for someone who is looking to get a degree to enhance their future, but doesn't want to be in debt for the rest of their lives. I have enjoyed much of my time at this school, and I appreciate many of the teachers I have worked under. That being said, there are issues, and most of them stem from a lack of communication and proper tracking of important files between departments and employees.

    Its a good academic school, But, the social scene gets D-. The only thing in walking distance is a gas station, so you will need a car if you plan of leaving this campus. The school is racially excepting.
