Greek Life: Greek life is a pretty big part of campus. You don't have to go Greek to have fun with them, they will still interact with anyone in Greek life or not. Very friendly

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are just standard dorms, nothing special. The social atmosphere is amazing in Towers and I met new people everyday. Very expensive to live in very small quarters however the social presence makes up for it.

Drug Safety: If someone doesn't want to drink or do drugs at a party, no one will think of them differently. Anyone can easily have fun even without being under the influence.

Nightlife: The party scene is awesome. The clubs and house parties are almost everywhere throughout Morgantown. No matter what age everyone can have fun! Transportation is just ok, buses run until 3 am Thurs-Sat but it would be helpful if the PRT was also running

4 College Freshman

Academics: The program I wish to go into is a very good program. The curriculum is pretty challenging but most teachers are very useful when students need help.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Most professors I have had are amazing and extremely helpful. Everyone I went to needing help seemed as if they truly cared and wanted to see me succeed regardless of having 100+ students in the class.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received very little financial aid which did not help me very much.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus is very strict on certain things while less strict on others but overall I feel as if they treat the more serious problems accordingly and let the less problematic situations go a little bit easier.

4 College Freshman

Computers: There are lots of computer labs/libraries all over campus whether downtown or on Evansdale. Everytime I need to print or use a computer I find one open with ease.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Not much crime on campus and if there is the university police are always on top of it. Very helpful security!

College Sophomore

Parking: I do not live on campus and do not have to deal with parking, but I have been told by numerous friends that parking in Morgantown is terrible.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Definitely top level campus dining here at this school

1 College Freshman

Parking: Dont bring a car up here unless living off campus!

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: They need more financial aid for after your accepted

5 College Freshman

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.
