Overall Rating

Overall, my educational experience at West Virginia University Institute of Technology exceeded my initial expectations. I started out as a pre-med biology major and then decided to double major in psychology, as well. Both departments are rigorous in training you to advance to the next level. The professors really care about your progress and make an effort to help you towards your next steps in your education/career. My advice would be to frequently visit your advisor(s). Don't be afraid to talk to them about any questions or concerns you have.
