Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

I spent all 4 years of my undergraduate career at West Chester University in PA. From my experience, it seems as though not many students remain at the original school they choose, but my first choice was the best choice. Not only is the campus and town beautiful and safe, but the staff was better than I could have imagined! All of my business professors had real life experience; I loved hearing their stories from previous jobs. The classes were entertaining and helpful with preparing myself for a fulltime job. Attending this University gave me so much confidence and knowledge that I was able to land a full time management job 3 months before I even graduated. West Chester's classes are very accommodating so I was able to finish my last semester and work full time with no problems!

West Chester is a challenging University that can prepare you for a solid career. The University has a solid reputation within the north east area. Going there can provide networking opportunities because of the various social groups. Another aspect of the school that could help with networking is the proximity to Philadelphia. Overall West Chester provides a nice education from passionate professors and an enjoyable environment.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2008

I am grateful for my education. I have always loved to learn. However, a college degree or even a Master's degree does not guarantee you the career of your dreams. Do it for yourself, but don't have any preconceived notions of what it may bring you.

The professors form meaningful relationships with students and work with them in every way possible to fulfill their needs. Second, this is an accredited program. Lastly, online courses are available.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2007

The school was flexible and allowed me to get a degree that met my needs. It wasn't cookie cutter at all. As a working student, the classes fit into my schedule, were relevant, and contained students at similar places in life. I was extremely pleased with the program.

West Chester University provided convenient classes that promoted critical thinking. The professors designed practical courses to help me reflect on and improve my everyday teaching practices.
3.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2013

West Chester University's MPH was completely in the evening, with exception of one class, which allowed me to work in Philly while being in school at night. The professors were really nice but there is one biostats professor (forgot her name) you MUST HAVE. She's the only professor with like a million degrees after her name lol. She's the reason I'm in a lucrative career of a data analyst!

West Chester University is known for being the premier state university in Pennsylvania. With its track record for offering areas of quality education, music, and top notch nursing students, West Chester University provides a foundation for success. Although the curriculum seems repetitive at times, it seeks to teach the students how to approach real life obstacles with a multitude of alternative perspective. Diverse thinking can be seen throughout the campus with an opened mindedness and inclusivity which incorporates all forms of campus activities, especially for the disabled. As a student who is blind I have felt not only comfortable, but embraced by educators and peers. The interactions that I have experienced are seen as a way for both parties to grow out of their comfort zone and gain new perspective. This education has propelled me forward towards reaching my goals and I am looking forward to step in to the world knowing that West Chester University has prepared me to achieve success.
