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!
Review West Liberty University
My experience with West Liberty has been, overall, a great one. I love the people here, and I've met some amazing friends here as well. The professors are very helpful. The only thing that could be more helpful is transportation. If you don't have a car up here, you aren't getting off of the hill without someone else driving you. That would be my only complaint, but other than that it's great.
West liberty is a great college with a beautiful campus. It is a small college and I love that, you feel more connected to staff and other students. Classes are usually only 10 minutes at most from each other. I would like the school to decrease its tuition though, it seems every year that it increases a noticeable amount.
