Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

It’s an amazingly open and adaptive university. You can always make connections because there are always people to hang out with and meet.

WCSU was a decent experience. I made great friends and got good grades. It was difficult communicating with administration or faculty when needed, so you had to be really independent at this university.
