“Encouraging”


Blair Shea chose WVU Online to complete her degree in General Business because she had a full-time job and her schedule did not allow her to take a lot of time off for schoolwork.


“My major was based on the availability of classes offered online, but the offered classes were ones I could take with limited direction.”

Blair enjoyed interacting with other students through online discussions, and also group projects.


“Feeling engaged with the faculty or the course material was sometimes an issue, but most of the time I could overcome it with self-rewards. I would just have to remind myself why I was completing this degree and motivate myself.”

She recommends WVU Online to other students because of the real-life lessons she learned.


“It has helped me with many different kinds of problems, from scheduling to spreading myself too thin."

“It is 100% worth it and you can succeed. The professors really care and are always there to help when needed.”
