Should have have been titled "WV University....." This was Mountain State University (as the article explains) and NOT West Virginia University.

Mountain State University is a joke. They have classes next to a shoe store and fast good rest.

MSU is for making money only.

With the MSU mess...it amazes me that they have expanded in six states. MSU is finacially unstable. I could see them closing campuses.

Wonder why MSU bought a mall? Does that mean they are now selling degrees at Walmart prices? YEAH! I can go buy me a piece of paper to hang in a frame on the wall at work and call meself edumencated! Do these degrees come with a money back guarentee if for some reason I am not satisfied with it?

Polk hates Beckley. He wanted the Martinsburg campus to replace Beckley as the main campus. He despises being associated with Applachian culture and mining. He has over extended and the school enrollment keeps dropping. Yes, MSU is in financial trouble. Too much overhead, VPs and Deans that are overpaid, and a CEO/President that is bleeding the school dry. Really sad. MSU could have been a good school.
