My review

The Good:

Lifelong friends

The Bad:

No help in job search back in 1980's

Would I do it again?

No, My Daughter attends and there have been too many issues with Financial Aid. That office is a nightmare. In my daughters sophomore year they said they were missing a paper but somehow it appeared, too late. We disagree but no one in the office fessed up to missplacing the paper or no one asked. Leading the child of a single parent and WSC Alum to receive ZERO financial aid for an entire year. I tried and being an alumni means nothing to at least the Financial Aid office. Even thought the present Director herself is an alum. It's very humilating to tell people the college I graduated from didn't care 1. that I graduated, 2 that an Alum's child is attending. I did contribute to the alumni association, yes they still call. Once my Daughter graduates in 2013 WSU will never receive another penny from this family of 2 Alumni.

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Program/Major

The financial aid process was an absolute headache, and it took multiple attempts to receive any aid.

The night life is Nonexistent

Every student at this school needs parking

Most students spend their Saturday nights watching movies
