West Liberty University Reviews
West Liberty has a great atmosphere, the campus is nice and peaceful. The classes are beneficial. The only thing that would be nice is if there were more activities since it is in the middle of nowhere and most students don't have transportation. Transportation opportunities would be amazing!
West Liberty is a great college if you want a small school. The great thing about WLU is your teachers get to know you, and you can always ask for help. The sights on campus are stunning, and seeing the school in the winter can be gorgeous, however, if you’re one who likes to be in the city, the closest small town to us is 20 minutes down the road. There is one store off campus, but besides that you have to do a lot of driving on windy roads.
The students and professors at West Lib are some of the best people I have ever met! So thankful for the opportunity to meet amazing people, earn my degree, and live in beautiful West Virginia!
