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.

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.
I thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Potomac State. The professors are great and care about you. The class sizes help create a great learning environment, and there’s a lot of activities to get involved in.
