Loved GSC and my experience! I have spend five years in Glenville, WV and I will always value the time I spent here. The professors want to see you succeed and help you a long the way. The campus feels like home and the departments feel like your family. GSC also has a variety of sports to choose from, I boxed. I was also a student worker and really loved working for one of Glenville's offices. My professors were very understanding and work with me because I was a student athlete and student worker.

Glenville State College is located in Glenville, West Virginia. It is a very small town and there is approximately 1,500 people throughout the city. The college itself has a very small campus and it is easy to get around. There are only about 5-7 buildings throughout the entire campus so you can get around and find what you're looking for fairly easy. The diversity throughout the Glenville State College population is poor. About 95% of the students are caucaisan and the rest are from various ethnicities. A good thing about Glenville is that everyone there is extremely nice. The students and staff are always helpful.
Glenville is a very small community and the college has about 1500 students. It is a place where you can focus on your studies with minimal distractions. Has a great athletic department, workout facilities, study areas, and dorms. Most people in this area are very polite and kind. Help is always available when needed, most professors make themselves available to the students when they need answers solved. Although it is very small many relationships are built in this community and everyone is very friendly towards one another. Student life coordinators always try to make activities to keep students involved because after all there isn't many things to do around the college.
