So Far, So good!

I have only taken one class thus far in the MBA program. It has been delightful studying under Dr. Halsey. His method of teaching the online class is innovative, and he is very supportive of his students.

My experience at WCU

The West Chester University of Pennsylvania is a so beautiful university in West Chester. I have been studying here for almost 3 years already. Right now, I am studying master degree in computer science. And I am glad to share my experience with the friends from other countries. As an international student who has no any overseas experience, studying aboard is a difficult thing. You may be facing many difficulties and limitations. However, I didn’t feel any negative impaction during studying at WCU. There are many resources on campus that can offer support our international students, such as Center for the International Programs. They can give us assistance if we have any problems. Also, the center for the international program usually organizes many activities and games in order to provide a friendly and delightful stage to international students, so that international students can well blend into WCU. In addition, the professors at WCU are so nice. If you have any academic questions, they explain and resolve your questions patiently and nicely. Last but the least, WCU also provide certain preparation to these international students who are looking for a job. There is a workshop for help you to find a job, for example, the center of career can guide you to write a good resume and provide a simulative interview that you can practice. There are a lot thing that better than you expect!!!

Excellent College

West Chester University attracted me at first by the «Harry Potter lookalike» buildings - outstanding! Thankfully, since I’ve always been career driven, WCU had more to offer than just great architecture. I met some of the greatest professors in my life who helped me succeed inside and outside the classroom. They truly invested their time in you if you gave the same in return. 
WCU also offers some online classes which I took advantage of two semesters since I was taking 18 credits. Having the freedom to study online when you have the time in between other classes or activities was neat - but it requires self discipline! The only reason i didn’t take online classes each semester was because they cost more money than actually going to class.
Lastly, I want to give a huge shoutout to the international office who helped me through the OPT process! Not only that, but also for the continous guidance and help on all matters I had questions to regarding jobs, driver’s licence, options after the completion of the OPT, and every other small or big questions I’ve had up until this day! 
I made my greatest choice attending WCU because I met some of my best friends here in addition to unforgettable memories and experiences - this in addition to having a B.S. in Marketing from a great college.

Great experience

I would describe my experience in WCU as a motivated academic environment, kind professors, diverse students, convenient facilities, ending with the beneficial program I am currently taking. In fact, all of these points meet my requirements as an international student who doesn't feel like a stranger in this beautiful town. I would thank everyone I have worked with. I will never forget this great experience ever.

my overall experience at WCU was pleasant!!

WCU gave me the opportunity to develop and grow. The staff and faculty are friendly and always willing to help.  The campus is nice, and has a lot to offer, as does the town itself. The recreation center is perfect. All classes are close to the halls, everything like 6-8 minutes walk from each other and its convenient. The school offer multiple clubs and majors to choose from.

Outstanding Experience at WCU

After completing a Bachelor in Education with a Specialism in Music Education degree in Ireland, I received a scholarship which provided me with the opportunity to undertake a Masters of Education at West Chester University. My experience in the M.Ed. program has motivated me to return to the classroom with energy and excitement, equipped with a fresh mindset towards teaching and myself as a teacher.

While studying here at WCU, I worked as a Graduate Assistant in the College of Education and Social Work’s Early and Middle Grades Department at West Chester University, which greatly enriched my experience. The faculty and staff have been extremely kind, welcoming, and supportive, which has had a hugely positive impact on my time studying in the United States. 

During my time at WCU, I joined the university's Irish dance team. It was such great way to meet with other students while also providing a connection to home. 

I would highly recommend studying at WCU!

WCU is excellent

My experience at WCU has been wonderful!! I've had tremendous support for my studies; both from academic and administrative offices. The application process was smooth, the Admissions office was prompt in responding to inquiry emails, and my admission decision was sent in good time. My professors are amazing, they're always available for consultation. Social life is amazing here; I've made great friends since I started school :)
