The University of Charleston is a great school. It’s small, but the campus is beautiful. It is in a relatively safe location. Charleston is a good town in WV- not a huge city, but there are things to do in the area. Most of the staff is extremely helpful and kind. There are students from all of the world that help bring a diverse culture. The facilities are nice. Like any school, the experience is what you make it. It is not a big school, it is a private school with a lot of great academic and sports programs. You will like this school if you like small class sizes and if you like the atmosphere of what Charleston, WV has to offer.
The campus is a beautiful campus with views of the state capital and a walking trail along the river. It is a very safe campus. In the 4 years that I was there, I never heard of any crimes that were committed on campus. This is a very small campus which is nice if you want a small class size and have plenty of one-on-one time with your professors.
I love the small class , the one on one time with the professors is great. They encourage students to new cultural events. The school is set up more for academics than any thing else. Which is what i desire for a college. i want to challenge my knowledge and process all new life experiences to the maximum availability.
When I first visited the University of Charleston it was an intimidating school. I went to a smaller high school and seeing how many rooms each building had was scary. But now that I have spent more time in the school, it now feels like a second home to me. I have never loved a school more than I love being at that school. The student and staff are very nice and I don't feel awkward for asking questions. The food at the school is the best food, and I am not exaggerating about it. The coffee shop in the school makes the best cookies and drinks. Outside of school, you have to drive down the road a bit, but there is fast food restaurants close by. The university is very against any drug or alcohol use on campus, which makes me feel better because I want to go to school to learn not hear about drugs all the time. They are also very against cheating, if your caught cheating you will go up in front of a "court" and they will tell the punishment. I am very pleased the university I go to and I would encourage other to the University of Charleston as well.

A few years from now, you'll be studying education at a major University in West Virginia, but right now I just want you to slow down and take a deep breath. I want to tell you not to make a rushed decision based on the school that your family and friends have attended. Stop and take a closer look at the educational programs each of the schools you are considering offers, and how the schools tuition will affect you monetarily. The UC will raise your tuition your sophomore year and you will no longer be able to afford to go to school. Please consider how much that track scholarship you have been offered truly means to you, and how much less important that is compared to the type of education will receive. All of your life you have dreamed of becoming a teacher, and educating our worlds future. Choose a school that will benefit you educationally, and leave you less in debt. I wish you the best of luck in the remaining portion of your senior year. Enjoy high school, because college isn't nearly as much fun as high school was.
Your twenty year old self.
I do not actually attend University of Charleston instead I am attending American Military University.
My classmates are great friends, however, not very career driven or dedicated to making the most of their college experience.
the University of Charleston educate each student for a life of productive work, enlightened living, and community involvement. And the university also offering selected quality programs affording professional preparation in a liberal arts environment. Preparing students to live in an increasingly complex and changing society by helping them develop the knowledge, abilities, and character needed to be lifelong learners.
The worst thing about the University of Charleston is the fact that they reel you in to attending their school with promises of how their educational process far exceeds anyone elses, when in reality they are just a private school that charges way too much too attend. Unfortunately, if you transfer to another school, your grades from classes already taken will not transfer with you so you actually start your college years over.
I would say that one of the most frustrating things about my school are the meal plans. As a Freshmen, you have to get 14-19 meals a week. I never eat breakfast, and sometimes not dinner, however I still have to pay. It is frustrating to me because I sometimes feel like I'm wasting money that I could be putting towards books or other things for school.
My school is small, quaint, and it is the best fit for me.
If in fact you do get involved, it is very easy to make lifetime friends. Many of the people there are extremely nice and fun to be around. The more friends you make, the more things you have to do and at that expense, Charleston doesn't seem as bad as it used to be. Unlike other schools, I feel as though the relationships you build at Charleston with other students and faculty really does last forever.
Any one that is wanting to continue their education should attend this college. If they are in the military then they should attend American military university.
My school has an excellent pharmacy program and it has a very good football team.
No everyone I have met at UC is very nice and helpful but every once in a while you will find a few stuck up people but that happens everywhere and not just UC!!!!!
As a pre pharmacy major, I feel that it is an incrediable program. The teachers are very helpful and they make sure that you are on track with what you need to be doing. UC has a fast track and tradition pre pharmacy program which allows students to finish at whatever pace they choose.
UC has lots of organizations and those organizations host lots of activities through out the year to make campus life more fun and enjoyable!!!!
That we are stuck up!
I love the teachers at UC because they are so helpful and understanding. I find it easy to learn subjects here because it is a small school and the student to teacher ratio is just right! I spend most of my time in my dorm room studying because college is ten times more challenging then high school! The most recent controversy on campus is the smoking huts and rules that go along with them. The main rule is that no one can smoke on campus unless they are inside of the smoking hut. One nice thing about UC is the club RHA. RHA host town hall meetings which allows the student body to voice their opinions about what ever topics they have concerns with to the cabinet!
