Nightlife: Parties are insane. Happen literally every single night there is always something to do within walking distance. Even on a Sunday. WVU is crazy. No wonder it is the #1 party school in America.

Campus Dining: There are a lot of greasy foods. There are healthy options at Boreman Hall, but other than that everywhere else is pizza, french fries, chicken nuggets, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: DO NOT live in Boreman Hall. Night staff is strict.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of restaurants off campus such as Texas Roadhouse, Olive Garden, and Golden Corral all within driving distance. The prices are the same as any other chain restaurant of that kind and provide student discounts for showing a WVU student ID.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Because of the valley and river, it tends to be windy often

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The busses run all the time. Getting to the Pittsburgh airport can be a pain since the bus only runs there twice a day. The PRT makes things much easier

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is basically only available in garages. Expect a lot of walking.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I do see a lot of people smoking around campus, but there are also quite a few cigarette receptacles scattered throughout campus.

Health & Safety: I have never felt that unsafe at night downtown, but I've heard about students getting attacked at night.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many variety of restaurants within Downtown Morgantown. Just to give you an idea of what downtown has to offer, there are Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Bduds, and awesome sandwich shops. Walking is quite a hassle (depending on where you live), but it's worth it.

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere in Morgantown is exciting and thriving with ambition.

3 College Student

Facilities: We have a fun football games the campus life is divided into two campuses Downtown and Evensdale. Downtown has the party scene with frat houses, clubs, restaurants, and bars. Most of the classes are downtown, Evensdale is very peaceful quiet some classes are there, the gym is there too. It sucks when you have classes at both campuses it makes commuting back and forth a pain. You would have to take the bus or PRT. We have two libraries to cater to people at the different locations there is one downtown, and evensdale.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The only nice dorms are Lincoln and Honors Hall because they are new. Summit and Stalnaker (upperclassman) is not too bad. All these dorms listed are suite style dorms. Boreman is gross there no AC and the rooms are shabby. Arnold Hall is okay. Arnold Apts is pretty good and Pierpont Apts is downright old, shabby, and gross. 2/3 of the freshman population are packed at Towers there are four towers Brooke, Lyon, Braxton, and Bennet.

Majors: I was pre pharmacy, but I have been accepted to the pharmacy program at WVU. I am happy with my program. My career goal is to work as a clinical pharmacist. I am not too concerned about finding a job because pharmacy has a variety of positions that are available.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
