What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school because of the constant adventure living in the mountains. It is absolutely breathtaking because my school is in a valley around the blue ridge parkway. However, the on campus dining is overpriced for the quality. Parking is terrible. There is not enough on campus housing and people are scrambling to find apartments.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers here are either amazing or trash to put it plainly. At least in the field of STEM. You either have an amazing teacher who will help you understand what you need to know for your job, or you have a teacher who refuses to teach the class. My current Calc II teacher simply copies and pastes the textbook to a whiteboard and calls it teaching. Make sure you ask your friends who to take each semester or your GPA will answer for it. The marching band and music programs are amazing though. Nursing and Engineering are some of the most popular majors here.

Great campus, the school is very beautiful and it’s very artsy all varieties of people, and it’s a bit diverse. Great community, the sports teams are cool. There is a lot to do outside of school as far as dealing with nature. The schools draws all kinds of people to its campus, it kind of reminds me of Asheville. Just not as big.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love how open and accepting Western is. You like feel you are apart of something. The scenery is just so beautiful. You can tell everyone takes very good care of their property and that they take pride in it. It is an amazing place to be accepted at and to go to college at Western Carolina University. To be apart of something bigger and better.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far I've really enjoyed my time spent on campus. The housing is pretty good and the food is great. I've really connected to the teachers and I've made lots of friends. I really hope I can use the money from this survey and other scholarships to help fund my tuition for next semester.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western is a great school! Just like any other, it has its cons. My residence hall has no air conditioning and sometimes the food isn't all that great. It's also in the middle of a small town, so the closest place to have a lot of fun is an hour away in Asheville. However, campus is amazing! There's always something happening, there are more clubs than I can count, and the faculty is known for challenging the students intellectually!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a whole Western Carolina is an amazing school especially for students that are a little hesitant to move away from home. WCU has a beautiful campus with many clubs, intermural sports, and sporting activities. WCU is in a small town though and to be a D1 school is fairly small, therefore activities can be limited and the party scene is not huge. WCU does offer many outdoor opportunities such as skiing, snowboarding, hiking, rafting, etc. I personally love Western the community is well-knit, the staff and faculty take a true interest in their students, and students opinions are generally listened to. I would recommend WCU to all high school seniors that are looking for a four-year​ university with a wide variety of activities and volunteer opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a wonderful school that I love. I wish the cafe food was better because it is kinda bland but the gym, the classes, and even the dorms are amazing, unless your a freshman then the dorms aren't the best. The school always has opportunity available to be active. It a wonderful college experience.

My overall opinon of Western Carolina University is that I love it , even though I am away from my family, but I found Greek life and found a family that I love and that western undertsnads when you need to be ther for your family and will try to take care of you and your family when you need it. Also, I love the views of the moutains that my school is surrounded by since it is in a valley.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

WCU is a beautiful place. Almost everyone I have encountered has been very nice. The food on campus is great. There are many different restaurants on campus you might find at home like Which Wich, Chick-fil-a, Chili's, Papa Johns, etc. The campus dining areas are great too. You most likely won't have to leave campus because everything is here. Only thing I really have to complain about is parking. Parking sucks on campus and the Parking Operations people are very strict. Make sure you read the signs before going into a parking lot. But overall WCU is a great school. GO CATS!!!
