What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have lived next to WCU my whole life and I always thought it was a cool campus to go hang out in. When I started going to school here I have met the nicest professers and students. Everyone helps each other out and if you get bored there are several things that you can go out and do considering we have one of the largest National parks around us.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a really nice school with a great community. Parking is pretty awful— price wise and actually finding a spot wise. The professors really want to see you succeed. While it is in the middle of nowhere, there is plenty to do on campus since they really want everyone to get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Carolina appears to be a very engaging and welcoming university and although it is not much is being done to secure the saftey of the students. During my Sophmore year there were multiple break ins around the surrounding areas, 2 gun related incidents which resulted in the deaths of 2 young men, and immense racial tension that made many minorities feel unrecognized.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love Western Carolina University! It is about a 25 minute drive from where I grew up, and I love how close it is to my family. I have loved almost all of my classes, but the professors are always ready to help and they are also extremely easy to talk to as well. WCU was the perfect university for me!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Western Carolina University would be a great fit for me mainly because of my major, but also because when I went on a tour to the university I was more comfortable and relaxed there than I was at any other colleges or universities. I also have a friend that is a current student at WCU and that made it feel more home and welcoming.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of WCU is its a school for people that value a good education, class sizes are small enough where your teacher will know if you are missing. They pride themselves in knowing and getting to know students. it's a very outdoors school with a multitude of outdoor activities from rock climbing, white water rafting, and hiking trails. its a place that makes me feel at home, I have visited a handful of times and decided to further my educational career there and wouldn't want to do it at any of state school in North Carolina.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a wonderful school with a great Special Education graduate program. The teachers ensure that the information they are teaching is utilized in the classroom. An example would be the the type of teaching that the teachers would like the students to use they would on the students. This is very helpful because I can see how the lesson would work first hand.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the campus! I came here when I was still in high school and fell in love with the environment, people, and culture. The only downfall is that campus food is not the best, and there isn't a lot to do in the town nearby. If you want to have a real good time you have to go to Asheville.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Western Carolina University. I have had great success in my classes, made new friends and enjoyed my time here. While there are some issues, they pale in comparison to all the wonderful opportunities that are offered here. I am proud to be part of this school.
