I love West Liberty, great school spirit and the professors are very helpful! Many different majors to choose from. You can commute or live on campus. The campus is great!
My school is unique because its a small liberal school on a mountain. Its very small and the relationships not only between staff, but also the student life is amazing. The professor there want you to succeed and they will do everything they can to help you. I would definitely choose this school over again, because no matter what department you are in you will succeed. I wish college was cheaper because I struggle to pay for school, but that's life and I have to deal with they road blocks head on.
A well kept school with great teachers and beautiful campus. I like the teachers better at west liberty because instead of just writing notes on a board they teach in ways many people can understand, the guide I get from many of my teachers direct me in the right path for my future. I highly recommend this school to anyone that asks.
