Resident directors let some things slide sometimes.

We're like in a mountain so there are no buses that come on campus. Usually, students have their own cars. Public transportation is hard to access here.

Guys & Girls:
You'll find a wide variety of guys and girls on campus.

Philippi is a small historical town. There are some good restaurants like Lil' Moes, Smokey Rays, and Fox's Pizza. There are parks and recreational places around the surrounding area. Philippi is a quite enjoyable town, but there are limited activites for college students.
College Sophomore 2012-10-23T23:48:31Z
There is public transportation, however, most of the students have their own cars to drive around town and do what they need to.
College Junior 2012-10-06T22:17:27Z
There is really nothing to do on campus and there are no bars in philippi.

Good Education – AB is a pretty small school so each student gets a lot of one on one time with the teacher, which is essential to a good education. I feel as though what I am learning can really be applies when I graduate, it's not just a scenario in a book.
College Junior 2012-08-04T04:18:41Z
Academics are a very huge part of what AB is all about, we have high credential due to our strict grading and small class sizes which allows more one on one.
College Junior 2012-08-04T04:14:44Z
Ab is in a small secluded area and has limited options for transportation. When I first got there the only way I knew to get around was by friend's with cars. Later I learned of a transit service but they charge a few dollars per ride
College Junior 2012-08-04T04:11:11Z
Ab has been very generous in their scholarships to me. They gave me a lot of academic as well as general scholarships.

False Advertisement – At Alderson Broaddus, the resident life directors and dean of students says that they have many restrictions on getting an off-campus house but they never follow through with most of these restrictions. As of this year, they are encouraging students to move off-campus because they do not have enough room to house them on-campus.

Cant See It but Its There – There a people that do it, but its not noticeable unless you know the people that do it. If one gets caught they are usually kicked off campus.
College Senior 2012-06-26T18:24:06Z
There is one bar in the whole town, because the town isnt very big. 18 year olds can get in and they have live entertainment but its mostly country based and sometimes karaoke. A lot more happens on campus than in town. All the parties that happen in town involve underage kids and no one wants to be a part of that.

K-9 Beat – The local law enforcement does not have internship spots. My goal it to become a K-9 officer. I plan on working with a local kennel this summer to receive additional training.

While the campus is small and compact and within walking or biking distance from town, it has no on campus or public transportaion. This will pose a difficulty fot those students that do not have cars on campus. And it will definatly be a problem if you get caught between campus and town if it rains or snows.
College Sophomore 2012-05-08T22:08:26Z
It has just enough spots for every one. Cars are not really need at the campus. Philippi is in walking distance only about 5 minuets away. If you are wanting to go to a bigger town. Morgantown is a hour and thirty minuest away. Then is you wanted to go the city Pittsburgh is two hours away. The campus is small so it will only take five to ten minutes to class.

Over All School – The school is an old school. But I don't mind, it's a small campus. Really close to town. We are getting a brand new football feild where our outside sports teams will play on (football, lacrosse, etc). We are getting new weight room equipment. We are also getting newest renovations is to the student union, dorms and auditorium.

This, I Can Actually Rate – A-B charges $20 a semester to keep your car in the parking lot. That is cheap. It is located in a small town so public transportation is not even really needed. You can walk everywhere.
College Sophomore 2012-04-10T21:36:47Z
I cannot rate a school I haven't attended. They do have some forms of greek life, they just do not have greek housing.
College Sophomore 2012-04-10T21:34:23Z
I can't actually rate this school since I do not attend there yet but from what I have seen, I am going to really enjoy my new home.

Student Teaching – I do not currently have an internship, but eventually I will eventually have to student teach. I am not worried about finding a placement because the education department does it for you.
College Junior 2012-03-28T13:45:57Z
Not Too Sure – I myself live on campus, so I am not really aware of much off campus housing. I know there are a few apartment complexes in town but that's about it

GO Teachers! I am an elementary education major with certification in Special education. I enjoy it a lot because they really get you out into the teaching world fast. I was in observing a class during my very first semester as a freshman. The workload can be a little heavy at times, but as long as you keep up, its manageable. The education department is also very helpful. They are willing to help you in any way possible. For example this year I did not have a car, so my adviser drove me to and from my observations at the elementary school.

Love It Here – I love this college and am so glad I came here. The environment is just fantastic. Here I don't feel like student #201, but like a art of the Alderson-Broaddus family. This school is located in a rural area which makes it feel just like home to all of of who came from that ind of setting and comforting to those who didn't. I also really love the staff and professors here. I feel like I could come to them with everything from hmework problems to problems with friend's, relationships, etc. Iwouldn't go anywhere else if they paid me.

So Much Better Than High School – Here at AB we have a pretty decent dinning program. I can honestly say it is WAY better than the food we had in high school. You have the option of going to the cafe where there's always something new being made on the grill. They always have fresh fruit sitting out beside the pizza. The sandwich bar is my personal favorite because its just like subway, you can make your sandwich however you like. Also if you don't like whats in the cafeteria yo can always go to the cave. There you can get a quick snack, like a grilled sandwich or fries. Its really convenient on those days when you don't have time to sit down for a meal. We also just got Jasmines which is AWESOME. There smoothies are amazing and there muffins are super delicious for a quick breakfast.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
