Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

West Virginia Wesleyan College is a small private college with great opportunity, exhibiting dedicated professors, a beautiful campus, and a friendly student body!

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

As a high school senior, I was extremely nervous about beginning my college career. I dreaded the idea of dormitories and cafeterias! I feared that the classes would be too difficult! Most of all, I feared that I would have no social life... When I arrived at college I DID find that both the dorm rooms and cafeteria food were poor; however, I soon realized that the people in those dorm rooms and that cafeteria were one of the greatest things that ever happened to me and would soon become my best friends. I also found college classes to be more engaging than that of high school; although I did have to work harder, I was finally beyond "busy work." Additionally, I quickly learned how to balance both an academic and social life, something I once thought to be impossible. Although college has its cons, the perks outweigh them. If bad cafeteria food is the price of obtaining great friends and immense knowledge, I'll pay! If I could give my high school self advice, it would be "BREATH GIRL! JUST CALM DOWN!! You'll be just FINE!"

What's unique about your campus?

The greatest attribute of West Virginia Wesleyan College is its small size. This quality creates a friendly and personal atmosphere that may not be achieved by larger campuses. Professors strive to know each student?s name and to engage students in classroom discussion; thus students are enabled to better learn their materials. Campus staff such as cafeteria and shop employees are also enabled to form relationships with students. This personal relationship, however, is not limited to faculty. Students exhibit immense respect and kindness due to their familiarity with one another. Such qualities conjunctively create a unique "homey" atmosphere.

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

I would have myself calm down about the decision alot. Things always seem to work out as best as they should. Don't worry so much about having a set life plan, that could just mess you up down the road. Learn better study strategies before college, and try to take a harder chemisty class!

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who doesnt mind a small town and enjoys spending time with the same people often.

Describe the students at your school.

Very friendly, most are really outgoing and always participate and we're all really connected because the campus is so small.

For parents I would say let the decision be your childs. If you pressure them too much then they're not going to be happy where they're at and most likely won't do well. However ask your child, first what kind of career they want and then select schools offering that degree. Visiting the college can either make it or break it. I think that's the most important thing to do if your seriously considering a school. Once you've been excepted to a school and you move in and get aqquianted with your suuroundings, don't be shy, other kids who've moved in are just as scarred as you, because it is scarry. Make yourself known, join something, greek life, clubs, theatre, orchestra whatever you want to do. Joining an organization gives you security and friends for life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who wants to be surrounded by tons of things to do, say in a big city. Also someone who just wants a degree, they have to be serious about their future.

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

The most important thing is to look at finances last. Once you find a college that you love, the money will take care of itself. There are thousands of scholarships; you just need to know where to find them. Become friends with your high school guidance counselor and your college admission counselors; they know where to find money for college. Do not make decisions based on a boyfriend or girlfriend, and don't go home every weekend. Get to know your college or university; join lots of organizations and volunteer in the community. The best way to find your worth at a college is to help those in that community. The most important part is to get to know your faculty and staff. Stop by offices, say hello to the custodians, and, parents, call and chat with the Dean of Students from time to time. If you're at a school like West Virginia Wesleyan, you'll soon learn that a college is a large network of wonderful people that can help you accomplish anything you can dream.

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

I wish I had known more about the history of the school.

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

To parents, don't place so much emphasis on affording a college. If your child truly wants to attend a college you think is out of your budget, simply look into how much financial aid that college will give. Chances are, with finacial aid and academic scholarships your child has earned (provided that he/she has done well academically and has many scholarship options), the college will be affordable to you, and your child will have a great education and many friends who will stick around for life. To students, follow your dreams. Don't ever decide on a career path because you think it is "practical" or because it is lucrative. Choose it because you want to follow it for the rest of your life. The last thing you want is to have a career that gives you a large amount of money and a high social status, but is unsatisfying and makes you unhappy. If you don't love it, don't pursue it.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A small minded person who is unable to bend his/her mind around to see another's point of view. would not be very welcome here. Openmindedness is almost a prerequisite to attending this college. Also, any one expecting to cheat, sleep, or otherwise skate through four years of college should look elsewhere. If you're here you should expect to work hard and learn more that you could imagine.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

It is common for certain professors to disregard a student's course load and demand that he/she take a course or be involved in something that he/she simply cannot fit in between courses. Many professors also disregard the dates of research papers, exams, and other big assignments due in other courses within the same department.
