Glenville State College is a small Public college in a rural West Virginia town. Though it's 15 miles from I-79, Glenville is relatively close to several metro areas. The academics at Glenville are thorough due to the faculty to student ratio; something you won't get at a major university. Glenville also has very nice facilities for academics and athletics. Glenville has plenty of opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities as well. Tuition at Glenville is comparably cheaper than most accredited colleges and universities. The only real negatives about Glenville is parking, dorms and party scene.
Review Glenville State College
So far my experience has been amazing. My brother is a sophomore there and I followed in his footsteps and chose to go there too! I like the small close community because it's easier to get to know other people and everyone is so close. I do think that the school should get better at helping students with financial issues and let them know when something is wrong with their accounts. The school just needs to be better overall with communication toward the students that attend.
I am currently a freshman at Glenville state college. The transition from high school to college was strange but the staff here were very willing to help in any way possible. The academics are great and so are the professors. The campus is beautiful and provides a good workout when walking up the steep hill. I love being here, and I am sure I made the right choice choosing this school.
