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.
Review Potomac State College of West Virginia University
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.
It is a nice campus. The professors are nice and willing to help when you need it. There seems to be a lot of technological issues that happen frequently, which is a downside. Campus food is not the best for the money that you pay. Everything is in easy walking distance. Very limited parking. Overall the campus is not bad but could use improvements.
