Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Academics Rating

I am learning a lot this year. Although I struggled a little in the first semester, I've taken advantage of meeting with my advisor, professors and worked with a tutor. I am working hard to ensure I get good grades, spending a lot of time studying.

Academics Rating

I like the variety of classes and programs that WVU has to offer students. Even if you are unsure of what you want to major in (like most students do) WVU has a program (University College) just for those students. There are also programs that aid student success such as Student Resource Labs.
