Potomac State College is a two year college located in a pretty desolate area of Keyser, WV the school has little distraction outside the campus so it is a great place to focus on academics. Sports events have lots of support and energy from the community , and locals always welcome students. They have open library, tutors, and 24hr study rooms with computer access. The air is always fresh, scenery is always beautiful and theres tons of nature to explore. In all Potomac State is a small,but has everything needed inorder for a student to move on to better university.

To me, Potomac State College of WVU is a one of a kind school that dedicates itself solely to the education of it's students. This school allows students to strive not only in the classroom, but also in the workforce. One thing that could be improved upon for Potomac State are the community events. The school has made a great effort to create more activities for their students, but I believe there could never be enough things to keep my classmates occupied outside the classroom.
Potomac state college is a good school somewhat. The students vary, some are nice and others are mean or bullies. The teachers are good and understanding and willing to help to see you succeed. The athletics are good and a fun way to begin your college athletic career. Honestly, I would change the way the administration act towards students and the way they are strict on others who may have violated the code of conduct.
