“I really feel that attending Western Carolina University was one of the most important and influential decisions of my life.  Not only did I gain an excellent education, but I also was transformed into the person that I am today.  Everyone at WCU has been a family to me; providing support, encouragement, and anything I needed throughout my undergraduate career.  I could never say enough about the benefits of the one-on-one attention from professors or the small class size. The opportunity to get to know the classmates in your major and form study groups outside of class was one well worth taking.  Western Carolina truly provides you with a firm foundation in your education as you prepare to enter the health field and achieve your ultimate educational goal.”
