i would rate western carolina with an 8 because they are still growing. the reason i say this is because they are still developing or trying to become a bigger school. i also believe that there could be more things around cullowhee to do.

Western Carolina University is a fantastic school. It offers great academics while still being a beautiful campus. It is small, and so the class sizes are even smaller than at my high school.
