What are the academics like at your school?


Academics are very important here. I am a member of the Honors College so academics are very important to me as well. The grading system is good here, teachers are fair and do their jobs very well. Overall I'd say the academics here are top of the line.


Most professors at WCU definitely go above and beyond in dealing with students. All of my professors know my name and in fact I usually end up taking more than one class with professors. I major in English with a concentration in Film Studies and I love the department since I've declared my major I have gotten to know (and become friends with) more people in the department and get to know the a lot of the department's professors. I am actually very interactive with my academic advisor because I have taken more than one of her classes.
