My review

The Good:

The Faculty. They teach in a manner which aids in the accumulation of knowledge far superior than any other college I've been to.

The Bad:

At the time I was taking classes at the Parkersburg, WV location, they were only offering a two year degree in Criminal Justice. I would have loved to have gotten a four year degree at the same institution.

Would I do it again?

Yes, I really enjoy the atmosphere, the faculty and friends, the courses, and lets not forget the cafeteria. They also have sport activities and child care on site, as well as, the new "Caperton Center" which is a new technology center named after one of our govenors.
