WVU is an A+ school for B+ students. The atmosphere is friendly and inviting, the professors are intelligent and helpful, and the fun only stops when you want it to. If I could do it all over again there is no doubt in my mind that I would pick WVU.

The program is very well taught, giving the possibility of different courses helps a lot. Another pro would be the availability of instructors, coordinators and dean of the specific program. Some cons would be, few affordable housing options around this part of campus, although transportation is better than expected.

As I have been through my first year in my Graduate Program of Industrial Hygiene, I feel that I have made the right decision. The professors want you to learn both in class and with hands on experience. I feel that the program helps students prepare for real life experience in a way that challenges individuals. However, the expectations are never more that you can handle. The only issue with the program would be that it is rather small and there are not a lot of Financial Aid opportunities within the department. The other issue is that classes get changed around and are only offered at certain semesters which could cause problems with graduating on time. However, I still feel that when I graduate, I will have marketable skills that employers will be seeking.
