certain offices and a small majority of teachers are unhelpful, leaving me to do things like depend on a psych professor to aid me in math or sociology, where the other professors teaching the course did not have the time or people skills to. it had also left me to depend on the kindness of the financial aid official to help me sort out and fix my schedule, where the dean and advisors were not helpful.Read More
The town of Montgomery is basically a ghost town. It’s small and old, and I’m not sure it could survive without the school. The campus itself is pretty old too, but I like the feel of a small town school. It’s not the nicest campus, but I was comfortable there because of the size and population. I drove an hour, one way to attend WVUIT. I liked it and probably wouldn’t have transferred if they had offered the degree I wanted.Read More

It makes you feel like you're right at home.Read More
