3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm only a freshman so I don't have excessive experience just yet.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Network will be the huge factor to be accepted.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe in Morgantown as long as I'm not alone. I don't party, so I don't even go out at night and my residence hall is cozy.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's decent living, but I didn't have A/C which was a hassle.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't have experience in this department.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love sports even more now that I'm at college.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being a mountaineer

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some of the teachers are hard to understand. My biology teacher was Indian so she a bit difficult to understand. I also had a class where my teacher seemed to only care about her outfit and reading off of a sheet of paper. She didn't seem to have a personal connection to the class and she also didn't offer any assignments nor did have personal study sessions. During the whole semester we had a total of two test and two extra credit points. Otherwise, the rest of my teachers were fantastic and I am so glad I had them. All of my classes were big except my lab, but I was comfortable with that.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a whole building specially made for alumni students. Also, several athletic directors graduated from WVU so getting a degree from this school must be very effective also given that its sport management program is top three in the country.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I think that when you associate yourself with that kind of crowd you will find stuff like harassment, however the only issue I had was some drunk guy knocking on my door at a late time. I stayed in my room and called my RA. The guy actually lived in the dorm area, but this was no longer an issue because my RA escorted him away and I think he got the hint. I haven't had anymore problems since then and I have felt very safe walking to and from my later classes.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It could be a little more cleaner and some stuff could be fixed due to the amount of broken items, however to RAs are fantastic and really care about your college experience. Moving in is a bit scary during the fall however. You have many people moving in at once because they do not allow you to move in until noon time giving us zero avoidance room.

I did not really have friends in summit. My RA was cool to talk to but, I spent most of my time out and about going to clubs and dinning halls.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't actually have any experiences with Greek life. In fact, I am not quite sure what it is,

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I couldn't even get to class last year due to the intense traffic jam that eventually led up the basketball game on the Evansdale campus. Sports in West Virginia can get pretty intense, but I have noticed that they are very important. It is kind of cool to be able to walk in my dorm after a late night class and see all of the students who couldn't go to the game huddled up in the study room watching the game on the small flat screen tv. I also remember watching a couple of the basketball games and seeing several almost impossible win such as the WVU and KU game. Not only are the sports very fun and everyone gets into them, but their CPASS facility is also top notch. CPASS is the building in which I will be attending for my sport management major. The teachers are proficient and I enjoy learning there very much.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love attending school in Morgantown, West Virginia. The atmosphere is unreal as thousands of students walk the streets and halls of the campus. It hard to imagine that I am where I am today, walking among the rest of the students in the same halls and sidewalks. There in a sense of pride and determination every time I attend a class or even ask a student for last class's notes. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason and choosing West Virginia University was one the best decisions I have ever had the privilege of making. The dorms are safe, the people are kind and accepting, and everyone has their own story and as they attend WVU they discover new endings and possibilities.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: West Virginia has one of the best college football teams in the United States. I've seen a lot of the videos and highlights of WVU stars and the teamwork between the teammates are outstanding. WVU fans love all of the sports that WVU has to offer. WVU is considered a competitive school in sports and same goes with the school spirit that the school has for all of the sports. I've personally never seen the athletic facilities such as the weightlifting facility, but I have heard that they have some professional equipment that will help the teams train better.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm a first-time freshman and have not started my journey at West Virginia yet, but I rated the NSO (New Student Orientation) and all I can say is that everyone there is amazing. There are so many nice and friendly people that are easy to get along with. The Orientation leaders we outstanding and so energized for the new class of 2020! I made so many new friends at West Virginia and I didn't even start school thee yet! It's crazy! If I could hangout with them again during orientation I would go back in a heartbeat, because meeting new people is a wonderful experience and the views in West Virginia are amazing! Definitely five stars in my book.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: At WVU our Greek Life is pretty big but also pretty troublesome. I'm not affiliated at all but I do have a couple of friends who speak good on their organizations.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: At West Virginia University one of the largest organizations is the Mountaineer Maniacs, which is a fan base for all sports at the university. Game days in Morgantown are some of my most remarkable memories, I love football and basketball way too much to never have an opinion on the Athletics. The student involvement as well as team performance are just phenomenal

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far at West Virginia University I have experienced school spirit, pride, adventure, new beginnings, and many other aspects of the mountaineer community. The atmosphere just gives me a sense of free and easy going.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My classes so far have been good but some professors have not been the best. Class sizes vary and that is a useful tool to help decide what types of class sizes you like the best.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The jobs I will be offered after I earn my degree will be high because of the Master's degree that I will be receiving.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are poles around campus that allow students to press a button if in trouble and that is very useful but other aspects are not that great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms and hall are very nice but others do not meet the expectations that they should and are not as clean as they should be.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek life here has a bad reputation and I do not see it changing anytime soon.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports here are more important than the academics and it is not a good thing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
