This campus is small and rural but the professors work closely with students and really want to see them succeed. If you need some extra help preparing for college or want to same a ton on tuition while you take your core classes, Potomac State is a great option.
However, they do not offer a wide variety of courses and the facilities are a bit run down. There are also less activities since the campus is small. This is not a huge issue for getting your core classes, but don't expect to get the full WVU experience.

My favorite part about Potomac State University is the professors I have had so far. Even the classes that were difficult for me had professors that were willing to help in anyway they possibly could. They were friendly while also giving constructive criticism and that is something I have learned to respect. The college has free tutoring with knowledgeable and well rounded fellow students.
I like being apart of Potomac State College because it is a local college. I commute, so it is not far from where I live. I have enjoyed in being apart of the classes. The classes here are small, not to large to were you can not focus on what you need to learn. Something I would like to change about Potomac State is the housing and safety. The housing are an average and so is the safety. The college could improve on these things by being more above average and taking the students advice when they try to change the issues.
