What do you wish you had known before you came to this school?When I came to my college, I knew it was expensive, however I did not anticipate the $1,000 tuition increase that would come my way my Sophomore year.  I am losing some of my scholarships because they were only for the first year, and now with the additional $1,000 increase, I have to come up with $3500 more than I anticipated. I don’t know if the increase would have kept me from calling UC home, but I definitley would have considered the financial burden.What’s the most frustrating thing about your school?I would say that one of the most frustrating things about my school are the meal plans. As a Freshmen, you have to get 14-19 meals a week.  I never eat breakfast, and sometimes not dinner, however I still have to pay. It is frustrating to me because I sometimes feel like I’m wasting money that I could be putting towards books or other things for school.

Describe your classmates in one sentence.Students at the University of Charleston are very athletic, and socially and globally conscious.  Many students attend the university on scholarships for athletics and the rest of the majority seems to come from an upper-class families. Students are extremely polite, and more than eager to help with any problem or situation going within the school or surrounding community. Students are very involved with the community, and are eager to help even on a global level.What do you wish you had known before you came to this school?I wish I had known that my tuition rate wasn’t annual, and would slowly begin increasing. I also wish I would have known that half way through my first semester at UC, that they were going to drop their secondary education program. The University of Charleston faculty is very caring, but oddly enough the school has a funny way of messing up their students educational pathways. I wish I would have taken into the consideration the amount of debt I would be in when I completed my education.

What do you consider the best thing about your school? Why?The acedemics.  This school prides itself on its ability to teach students and prepare them for the real world.,What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?The activities.  The school provides some activities for the students to do, but they aren’t cutting the standard of what a typical person would call engaging.
