Most Helpful Review for Western Connecticut State University

With professors that are clearly knowledgeable in their respective profession, a quality education is sure to be attained while attending WestConn. Not only do every one of the teachers I have studied under have given me a quality education with fulfilling lessons, but even after class ends they are more than available to answer any questions and offer guidance to those in need. Bottom line -- the professors will ensure that your education is their first priority here.

    western connecticut state university is a wonderful university that is overlooked by many students. the education very well, and the price is even better. even though the university is comprised of mostly commuters, w.c.s.u still has a strong sense of community on the campus.

    WestConn is definitely a flexible environment. Your attitude is what shapes your experience here. What you learn is completely subjective to your desire to learn.

    WCSU has some awesome professors that are very available for extra help outside of class blocks. WCSU is a majority commuter school. The students at WCSU are pretty welcoming.

    Separate campuses are kind of confusing. Danbury is an okay city with no excitement and really nothing to do for fun. Extremely cheap school.

    The University does not accommodate working professionals or young professionals who want to get a head start in their career. The academics are the only thing the university really has to offer.

    Western Connecticut State University is a somewhat small college with a wide variety of majors that offers new opportunities for new or perspective students. It is conveniently located in Danbury and within walking distance of several restaurants and shopping plazas. The staff at WestConn is very polite and willing to help the students with any problems they have, you just have to know who to ask.

    WCSU is a great university to attend. It offers students a variety of degree programs and activities to keep the students well educated and entertained. The only downfall of WCSU is that their classes are hardly available.

    Western Connecticut State University is full of a variety of different people like, theatre kids, science majors, athletes and so much more of all ages too. The classes range from easy to difficult. It's location is convenient for most, and though downtown Danbury is not the greatest of places when you are on campus it's like a completely different place.

    Western is a very small campus with a fantastic focus in the arts and sciences. The food is moderately okay, but the schedule for the cafeterias is very hard to grasp at first and doesn't always fit in with your schedule. Staff is usually very helpful, and the classroom sizes are generally very small in student to professor ratios.
