Glenville State College is an awesome college to go to if you like small class sizes. The professors are personable, friendly, and make themselves available for one-on-one time with students. Glenville is a small homey town with a positive environment and amazing people. Everyone is super kind and it is alright to be quirky. Do not let Glenville's small size fool you; our student life makes sure that there are always events going on, such as bingo, escape rooms, and paint night! We have many wonderful clubs and organizations to choose from. Many students come to Glenville with scholarships in athletics, so a large portion of the population are athletes. Some of the most common majors at GSC include: Education, criminal justice, forestry. If you are in to Bluegrass, you are in the right place; you can actually get a major in Bluegrass! The academic success center offers many free services to students, such as tutoring for almost every subject, mock interviews, resume building, and so much more! GSC also offers many on campus jobs so that paying for tuition is a little less complex. Now that you have heard some of the pros, let's talk about the cons. The cafeteria food is good, but it is often difficult to make healthy choices. The dorm rooms are also pretty small. The campus is on a hill, which is a great way to get in your exercise, but many people are not a huge fan. Overall, Glenville State College is a great school! I am so happy that I decided to come here; there is no where else I would rather be.
Overall, I'm glad that I attended Glenville State. I feel like I received a good education and have made several lasting relationships with fellow students as well as professors. For the price that I paid in tuition and housing, I feel like it was a good investment.
Overall I haven't been there yet but I really can't wait to come out there and meet new people explore. I am so excited to be part of Grenville State College also I can not wait to be everyone overall my Second family the soccer girls
Overall my experience at Glenville State College has been great. Although I was originally hoping to contract as an ROTC cadet and the program was cut by our main branch, I still like it here. In fact I was going to transfer to WVSU for ROTC however their admissions department wasn't on top of things and same with their registrar. I say that to say this Glenville, honestly makes enrolling as painless and easy as possible.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Glenville State College is 69%. 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 _____.
If I could go back in time and talk to myself, I think I would be more serious about getting ready for college. Financial aid is important! I knew I wanted to attend college, but I was unsure what career path to take. Be more aggressive in talking to my guidance counselor , they have information that can help with decisions. Instead of feeling under pressure to have my life in order by graduation, I realize that everyone makes changes as they get older, it's part of life. Nothing is set in stone at seventeen. I wish I would have known how much I would enjoy college life and look forward to each day. My college classes are chosen for a career that I am interested in and more enjoyable than high school classes that were requirements. The transition from high school to college life, is going from a dependant child to becoming a young adult and learning how to live on your own while pursuing a career to last a lifetime; I think I am doing okay,however, I worry about the cost of each semester and my ability to pay for my education. I will enjoy college life!
I like to consider Glenville State College more unique from others based on how hands-on the faculty is. The classes are smaller ratio; which means the professors are more involved with students. The professors will go the extra mile here, and it's obvious that they love what they do. I believe if a student feels that the professor isn't involved and professional, then it can cause students to become more lazy and most importantly not do the best they can do.
I think that the best aspect about my school is the availability of professors and help with coursework when I need it. Professors here are very friendly and honestly care about their students. The small-school atmosphere leads to having quite a few friends because everyone knows everyone. The school is located in the beautiful hills of West Virginia, and there are many opportunities to participate in outdoor recreational activities.
The campus is on top of a hill, so lots of stairs.
i wish i had known that this school was small and also how expensive it is to attend such a small school that isn't even a private institution. i wish i would have known how this school find ways to exhuast every bit of money you have out of your pocket and the social norms being comprimised by local students that leave to go home every weekend and public safety that target students that pose no threat to such a vacant campus even on a weekday. also the lack of things to do on and around campus.
They are friendly and helpful.
I tell my friends about my Greek involvement. Joining the sorority was one of the best decisions I made in college.
GSC is small and quite, yet there is always something to do...it is almost like a private school, but for a public school cost!
Our school is well-known for high quality in the Education Department, Music, Forestry/Land Management, and Business. We have one of the only (possibly the only) Bluegrass music certification in the country.
If you prefer small classes, a tight-knitted community, and lifetime friends then Glenville State College is right for you.
Those whould don't like hills.
The most frustrating thing about this college is that the dorms are very noisy. I am lucky to be on the top floor but I hear a lot of complaints of people coming in at night and waking people up who have eight o'clock classes. I would say that it would be the most frustrating thing.
