What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
There are a large amount of staff members for such a small amount of students, which makes for smaller student to teacher ration in classrooms. The campus is a little bit spread out across a hill, but is not hard to navigate. There is plenty of parking for commuting students.
Joshua from Seth, WV
It is a great college to go to. Everyone is friendly and personable. Just the right size as well.
