What is your overall opinion of this school?

The best thing I have to say about this college is that I’m about to leave it. The food has made over half the school sick, when the students demanded to have this addressed they simply said they would create new food options. Neither the quality of the food or the options improved. The teaching staff is only helpful when they have the time and patients, few are amazing instructors but those few are being pushed out. As a student I know exactly which instructor/professor is worth anything at what they do and more than half have decided to leave. This is due to the over bearing load put upon them, with lack of pay. They are required to take on a whole departments work, given the tittle of multiple jobs without the pay of them, they do not receive a raise either. The athletic department is part of the culture of the “good ol boy”, recently a convicted rapist was recuirted onto our football team, the student body was not aware of his charges till a scared girl researched him then proceeded to warn the rest of the famale body. The woman’s soccer team was forced to build their own locker room, where they work almost eight hours straight cutting and bruising their body because if it didn’t get done in time they were told they would no longer receive scholarship, or a place on the team. The boy football team however had their lockeroom built with custom aspects; hard wood flooring, new uniforms placed in every locker, custom made corn hole sets, speakers with surround sound, and a private bathroom. The coaching staff is treated untouchable, the female soccer coach had multiple accusations against him, when a meeting was set up to address these accusations the team was told there would be a formal report made with the NCAA, no report was made and the department staff says the NCAA was never in glenville to this date meaning no report was officially made. The president of the college has told the staff in the resgitor office to approve as little people possibly for overload courses to force students to stay in glenville longer. Recently I ran into this issue, they came I need another course that they will not let me take due being over the max amount of credit hours. In 2017 they restricted the allowed amount from 18 to 17 forcing people to pay an extra fee for taking over load courses which is unavoidable with that odd number. I was approved to combined to courses to graduate on time because it was a science with a lab, now 30 days after being approved I am being told I am not to graduate because they changed their mind, a committee that I never met is saying that they never approved it and that the lab hour I am taking is not an actual lab. This school is a plague on so many people costing students hundreds and thousands of dollars because they are allowed to change their mind at a drop of a hat, this would never occur at a better, larger school that isn’t ran by money hunger men and women. Don’t attend this college unless you want to pay twice as much as you thought you would.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I thoroughly enjoy GSC, but my main problem with the college is that there is nothing to do in the area. On the side note, the professors and staff are very friendly and the people here will become your family over time. Make the most out of this place and it'll be a great experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Campus is very nice, but be prepared to walk up stairs all day every day. All professors are just an email away and will do their best to help you succeed. Dorm life is pretty good. Both single and double dorms are a nice size and laundry is included. Food is mediocre but tolerable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The transition is fairly easy if you choose to be mature and responsible and know that your life starts as soon as you settle in your dorm room on the first day of school and your parents leave you to be on your own. though you wont make it to class everyday learn how to go and see your teachers that same day and continue to finish every assignment given to you. no matter the grade in return you are always learning something new every day so in essence you will do better everyday. also time management is everything, learn to put priorities first, because their isn't a better feeling than finishing your work before fun and going to class forgetting that you even did it and then being relieved to find the completed assignment in your notebook for class the next week. the advice i would give myself is, "you can never be great until you have worked up against something."

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

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.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A local person should attend this school. The school has a large amount of out of state students but dont focus on activities that would intrest those students. Instead they are very conservative making us have to adjust to their lifestyle. this school acts as a community college. someone that has very poor social skills would be interested in this school. though the people that are in and around the school are friendly their is not really anything to do for fun at such a closed minded school. Public Safety is always over the top with students also.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could, I would go all the way back to my first grade year and keep constantly telling myself that the people that bullied me for eleven years will all be gone as soon as high school was over. I developed an eating disorder because of those people, I almost died because of those people, I started self-harming because of those people, but guess what? You are going somewhere, younger self. In the future, you have saved 2,000 individuals from committing suicide, and you love every single day of your life. Chin up, younger self, you are going somewhere in life, and as for those other people? Let them bully you. Let them say those words to attempt to hurt you. Keep in mind, karma will give them (and you) a wonderfully ironic case of justice for what you have been through!

What's unique about your campus?

For being considered the smallest school in the state of West Virginia, Glenville State College does extremely well at keeping students safe. While there are still our incidents, Glenville, in my opinion, should be recognized as one of the safer campuses across the United States.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The thing that preturbs me the most about Glenville State College is the lack of opportunities for students to voice their individualized opinions. I am an advocate for children the have developed mental illness because of bullying and I want to get the word out about just how harmful bullying is to children and teens across the United States. I want to be able to change the lives of others, through my work I have saved over 2000 lives, but I can't even give a presentation at my college as a freshman.
