West Chester University is a university filled with many opportunities and experiences to offer each and every student. All faculty/staff as well as students are so friendly and eager to help each other out so we can all move forward together. In my opinion, this university offers a wider variety of programs which played a major part in me attending. The professors work well with us students to ensure that we not only do well but have a good understanding. Also the programs are very hands on and we get a lot of experience in applying ourselves in our respected field. The students here are very friendly and caring which makes it easy to make friends. It is a wonderful experience and I am proud to be a student at West Chester. #WCUPride!!! show less
