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.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The Forensics program at West Virginia University is great however it consists of a heavy workload. I have to take many difficult classes used to help thin out the less serious students. I am excited to get into my upper class courses that will pertain to my major more closely.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: Not sure about this because I do not take part in an activity if drugs are involved.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I have not considered off-campus housing.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: I believe that the new housing that are being built are going to be a benefit to the campus.

2 College Student

Transportation: I believe that it is difficult to travel back and forth from home to the campus. Because you have to go thru Pittsburgh all the time and most of the time the schedule does not work .
