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!

I love attending this school it’s in my home town so it’s nice to be near family. There are some very nice and professional proffesors/instructors and then there’s the not so good ones. I suggest that you meet with your proffesor before you start the class because even though it’s college some can be a pain in the butt. Overall love the school and the staff is always quick to jump with help they can offer. Love the tutoring center and the services they provide!
WVUP is a great school. It's centrally located in Parkersburg and is fairly close to home. You get provided with a great education at a minimal cost. My overall experience has been amazing! I enjoy every minute of my time here. Nothing major needs to be changed!
