Glenville State College (GSC) is nestled in the side of a hill in a small town of West Virginia. GSC has many things to offer to students looking to further their education, especially in education. GSC brought me life long friends and taught me many lessons. There's nothing quite like the people of Gilmer County. The towns people are so supporting and involved with all events and students. If you're looking for D1 facilities with a cheaper price, GSC is the place for you! The Waco center is a sight for sore eyes, absolutely beautiful. Although, it's pretty far from any big city don't count it out before you make a visit. The campus is beautiful and the professors are so helpful!

I love this small school. Every professor is directly involved with you and it really makes you feel at home. Even though it may be a small campus, there is a vast amount of diversity and it makes students feel welcomed. Academics and sports teams are through the roof amazing. The involvement with the coaching staff is surreal--they all seem as if they are professional athletes themselves!
Glenville State College is a small D2 school in WV and there isn’t much to do, but I have been at the school for three years and I have throughly enjoyed my experience. I have made many life long friends and have made many memories along the way. With them, being in the middle of nowhere doesn’t really matter. The classes are somewhat easy and the professors are very lenient and attentive. If you can get passed the college being in the middle of nowhere, it would be a great place to go!
