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.

Most professors are excellent! I have yet to have a bad experience. The facilities are wonderful and all workers/personnel are respectful and professional. Most professors ensure that their students are learning as much as they should.
I really enjoy Glenville! The professors are super nice and understanding! The campus is all on a hill so it’s a lot of stairs to get to class, but overall it’s a good place to go to college.
