Alderson Broaddus University has quite the scenery it amazes me I see live beautiful scenery alike many other campuses. ABU has really great science program, a challenging academic school. I like there sports but wish there was more people willing to attend the games. Also Greek life would have increased my stars to 5.
I loved the campus. It was a very nice atmosphere and the faculty was great. I felt really comfortable being there and had a great college visit.
Alderson Broaddus University is a small, quaint campus with a tight knit community working together to succeed. You see everybody almost everyday, yet still find new students to talk to and new friends to connect with. Alderson Broaddus provides every opportunity for you to succeed. Our little campus on the mountain is a place that can easily become your second home.
The campus comes to life everyday, from students hanging out in the Cave or the student center to many embarking on their daily strolls to class. The atmosphere is mainly surrounded around athletics, with over 80% of the students enrolled being student-athletes partaking in NCAA Division 2 competition. I will admit, it is rare to see a NARP (Non-Athletic Regular Person) on campus, but it does not mean you are not welcome!
There is almost always something to do on campus. From color runs to dodgeball tournaments, there is always an event open for students to get out of their dorms and be active. You have very many opportunities to unwind or work out after spending all day in the classroom, with offered yoga and Zumba classes to kick you into shape while having a blast!
Though I am only a freshman here on campus, I have nothing but kind and positive words to say about this school; Alderson Broaddus University - you can do that here.
This college is okay but I am not too fond of it and I plan to transfer as soon as I can. Most of the people here are into underage drinking and partying every day. It's not quiet at night because of all the partying that goes on. I'm not into that so I plan on finding somewhere else that has more people that aren't into that.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Alderson Broaddus University is 41%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The most important advice I would give is to first speak the professors one on one. If you didn't get along with them when you met them, then you never will. Talk to the students. Don't just talk to the people that look like your friends from highschool, but pick random people and ask them there opinion. Someone will give you the truth about the school. Pay attention to the students attitudes walking around. Ask yourself if you could fit in there. Most people go away to college far from home, so you have to make sure that the place you are going to go can become a home away from home.
Most of the classmates are open to new ideas, focused on their studies, and honest people, but some are there more for the partying than the classes.
The best thing about A-B, to me, is probably where it is located. Philippi, WV is a small town where it seems like everybody knows everybody. Even though there isn't a lot to do outside of campus, the town has a friendly atmosphere, and the fact that the school isn't in a huge city with tons of places to go means that there are less distractions when it comes time to study. However, if one finds oneself with some free time, Philippi is within driving distance of many bigger cities that have more to do and see.
I usually brag about the size of the school, the quality of the education, and the positive disposition of most of the faculty, staff, and students. The school is a smaller school, but it's still diverse. The education is sought after in WV, bein one of two schools offering a Physician's Assistant degree. Also, the faculty, staff, and students are very kind and are genuinely concerned for the well-being of each other.
Are school is best known for the PA program, although music is on the rise. Any medical profession at this school is looked upon highly. However, the degree for these programs is not easy to obtain.
In order to be able to survive here a person must be able to keep up with a medium sized work load, and be happy with a smaller population of students. Nothing else like race , religion (there is a buddist professor), or sexual orientation matter, even though it is a Baptist college.
Alderson Broaddus College is a great place to learn, grow, and see some beautiful sights while just being yourself.
There is not a lot of things to do on the weekend other then partying. However, the partying almost always has drinking involved and I feel that it can sometimes get out of hand.
A person who is use to city life and doesn't know how to change to a rural aea or lazy, that don't understand what they are here for would not do well.
Not having enough time during the week for social time due the stressful nature of my major.
The teachers know their students but first name. Everyone is eager to help and willing to support your opinion.
The academics at my school are as any school everyone puts their grades first here. Although teachers have multiple classes there are excellent professors here.
I understand what college is all about in many ways; from having good grade to dropping a class and retaking. I learned there are many people who view life in different ways here at ABU. I fall under the stereotype of another football who does not want to be serious however I refuse to fail here. There are many different types of professors here some look to help past enough while others make it hard on you. Overall I like the school because of football however, the school is very expensive and scholarships are the best things to hope for.
