    Everyone is very helpful at all times and everything is very easy to locate around campus. The smaller classes help all students to focus better and receive more individual attention from their professors. It is an all around easy going environment to be in.

    West Virginia University of Parkersburg is generally a good college to attend for those fresh out of high school and still trying to figure out a direction and those with families who cannot dedicate all their time to studies. The classrooms are small and personal, so calling upon a professor and seeking help is easy and plausible. Scheduling classes for a semester is relatively painless, and the college has a nice variety of courses for those just beginning.

    This college is great for a first time college student. A grad student may feel out of place and intellectually insulted. I feel the college is moving in progressive manner and will be a significant school in four years.

    They have a good jackson county center that offers many basic classes. It is sometimes unclear what the deadlines are and how to set up an olsis account with the college was a struggle at first. This is a great center if money is a concern and offers a good education.
