Review Wheeling Jesuit University
Professors at Wheeling Jesuit University truly care about their students and wish the best for all of them. They are willing to go above and beyond to get to know the student and help them out in whatever way that they can. Every professor in my departments are incredibly knowledgable in their subject field and bring passionate vigor to teach every class period. Core classes fill up at 25 students and major classes are much smaller. Because of the small class sizes, it is easy to get to know the professors well and what they are looking for. Many of my professors have invited students over to their houses for beginning and end of the semester socials in addition to allowing students to get to know their families. The professors at Wheeling Jesuit University truly care for their students and are willing to make time for them outside of office hours.
It seems as though a good majority of students on campus are athletes as is the case with a small school. Unfortunately, because of the size of the university, it is easy for anybody to see who plays which sport simply by walking into the cafeteria during any meal, one could easily draw a map of the cafeteria as they did in the film Mean Girls (italicized). Not many students seem to go to sporting events besides the West Liberty basketball game and other games that CAB pumps up beforehand with freebies. The sports teams are excellent both academically and athletically because coaches focus on making the whole person and make academics a priority along with their sport.
Wheeling Jesuit University offers a great atmosphere for those who seek it out. The university understands that it does not have the best facilities and resources, but makes the most out of what it has and asks students for ways that it can improve, but students tend to be too apathetic to seize those opportunities. Wheeling Jesuit University has been great to me in all aspects from the professors truly caring about me as both individual and student to to the administration caring for the student body as a whole.
