West Liberty University, established in 1837, was the first institution of higher education in West Virginia. Today, we are a dynamic, inclusive, student-centered community that cultivates scholarly exploration, experiential learning, creative expression, and global citizenship.


International students have unique educational opportunities that are not found at many other universities in the United States.

For example, ambitious students have the opportunity to join the Honors College at West Liberty and be part of a selective academic community of highly motivated and intellectually advanced students. Students accepted in the Honors College are able to engage in exceptional experiences that develop excellence in leadership, scholarship, and services.
