West Virginia University at Parkersburg Reviews
All of my professors have been nice, Professor Thompson in particular is always energetic and understanding, he really goes above and beyond for his students making sure we understand the material. The administrative staff is also really nice and they seem to care about the students as well. Those combined with the exceptional price of education makes this school an amazing place to study! The school has many study areas which are cozy, clean and well lit, as well as a tutoring center. The only slight drawback is parking for the Caperton Center and Applied Technology center leaves a bit to be desired, but the short walk is occasionally enjoyed.
I am going into my fourth year at West Virginia University Parkersburg and have enjoyed my experience there. I am enrolled in the Education program and have loved every minute of it. It is challenging but everything that I am asked to do will be important when I become a full-time teacher. The instructors are always willing to help the students succeed and become the best teachers that we can become. Their doors are always open to help the students to make decisions or work through problems that is going on the in classrooms that we are placed in. I would recommend this program to anyone thinking about getting an education degree.
So far, I have had the best experience at WVU-Parkersburg. This small college is close-by with so many different education paths available. All of my professors have been incredible and actually seem to enjoy teaching. As an adult returning to college, I couldn't imagine a better place. I would definitely choose this college again and wished I had my first time around 15 years ago. My favorite class ever was Deviant Behavior because the professor truly knew the material and was super engaging with the students. Hoping to take another class with him if possible!
