4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: A lot of variety with plenty of non chain restaurants to keep you getting something different for months.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Great selection and a lot of variety depending on what you want. Prices range from $350 per month to $600 and traffic is never really that bad unless it's game day or around 4-6 in the evening.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Parking situations are terrible in Morgantown. The parking is horrible there is never anywhere to park here and they will ticket you constantly. Most of the jobs in morgantown you have to drive to so if you need to work you will need a car.

Campus Strictness: The campus police are not that strict on students as long as you are not trying to reek havoc in the streets. One of the big things that they are very strict on is parking. They will not even think twice about towing or ticketing you.

Off-Campus Housing: Living situations in Morgantown West Virginia at WVU are fairly easy to obtain. WVU has a whole lot of variety with so many different option for you to find. The transportation is good also because most apartment complexes have shuttle busses.

Nightlife: To me, I don't really go out for the night life that often. If I do decide to have night life I usually stay in my apartment and have only a few friends over. I have realized the last few weeks that I can not rely on my friends because they are not going to be the one who takes care of me when I am older.

Scholarships: Personally, I had to work my advisor and my high school to squeeze any money at all out of WVU. If you work hard, money is available.

Weather: The weather at WVU is simply unpredictable. It's nothing unbearable and you get used to it very quickly. You just need to be prepared for anything.

Health & Safety: Honestly, I feel extremely safe walking around campus, and I'm never worried about leaving my dorm unlocked for a few minutes. The health center is attached to a huge new hospital which gives the illusion of convenient and capable medical help. Unfortunately nothing about the health center is convenient and everyone in there is extremely unhappy.

Overall, students have made it pretty clear that they are really enjoying their time at WVU. Looking back through this book, it can be seen that WVU has garnered many high grades for subjects such as social scene, academics, and athletics. It is clear that there are many things the school excels in. The aforementioned are huge parts of campus life at WVU, and the students have said nothing but good things about them. While there were many high grades, there were a few grades that show the University could still improve in certain areas. It is clear that the campus dining services are not doing a great job pleasing the students, nor is the parking situation on campus. Considering these are two pretty important things on a college campus, the University should quickly take the right steps to move those two issues into a positive direction.

The attitude at WVU seems pretty split between academics and social events. While most students attend WVU with the expectation of a great education, there are a select few who come to WVU because of the potential party scene. Either way, WVU offers something for each side. With each incoming class comes the promise to improve upon faults and provide students with the best possible experience and education. The athletics program is on the rise and on the verge of gaining national prominence. The academic programs are showing promise as more WVU graduates are gaining recognition for their accomplishments. WVU is a student-oriented university, and should be considered by incoming freshmen who want to be treated to a great college education and experience.
