This school is amazing. You meet some really kind people and the professors actually care about you. The faculty is amazing and they are so helpful. The campus is small so it is not confusing, it makes everything easy. Everyone on campus is so kind, the classes are amazing. You can always find a good class to get into, they have so many amazing choices that there is something for everyone. They have some good areas of study, they have so many that you will find something that you will like. WVWC is an amazing school and I highly recommend. The classes sizes are smaller so it is better to absorb the information. The area is really good and everything is around you. The professors are always willing to answer questions and are always so helpful when it comes to academics. The academic advisors always make sure how school is going, grades and schedules. They always are willing to help if anything is wrong because they always provide solutions if something is wrong.

WVWC professors and staff are very connected online. They even recently partnered with an app for students to access schedules, grades, even a food menu and more!
I have been to West Virginia Wesleyan College on many different occasions. I have been there mainly for band and theater activities. Each time I have gone onto the campus the food, people, and overall scene of the campus has been excellent!
