There are so many potential opportunities. Many of the teachers are willing and excited to go above and beyond both inside and outside the classroom. Along with having unique Appalachian-based classes, there is also plenty of hands-on experience for biology and pre-vet students. (I cannot really speak for any other major)

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There are so many potentially amazing things about this area and this campus, but they are heavily overshadowed by the administrator's complete lack of empathy for their students. There are many many important issues that the school just straight up refuses to fix or will lie to your face about. Only come here if you have an insanely strong will and dedication as well as being willing to overlook your basic needs in exchange for overpriced education and raw chicken.
