4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is always a variety of food.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus made it easier to get to class and there is plenty of transportation to get you from point A to point B.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Avoid Evansdale Cafe! If you are hungry and next to the Evansdale cafe either go to brew and gold or walk to engineering and go to Da Vincis. Summit generally has good food and so does Da Vincis. The meal plan resets on thursday morning for students who get 15 or 20 meals per week.

Campus Housing: Living on campus isn't too bad. If you are more of an engineering major or a major that has more classes on evansdale, one of the evansdale .locations is a better choice. If you are planning on having more classes downtown, then you should choose one of the downtown locations. Evansdale is generally quieter than downtown, so it may be a better choice for those peope who are annoyed by loud people.

Off-Campus Housing: Lots of options, closer to campus the more expensive.

Party Scene: Can usually find a party whenever you want, but always many other free activities elsewhere.

4 College Student

Scholarships: Overall good. I have had trouble with paying online, would suggest mailing or delivering a check.

4 College Student

Campus Food: Research meal plan to see which is most fit for each person. All very good and convenient.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Very good living but very expensive. The better the location, the more pricey.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They stick to the rules that are set and you break them then you deserve the punishment they give you because you were warned before hand.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not have many issues and they helped me when I needed it. I'm grateful for the aid I received because it helped me so much to be able to pursue my dream.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The places to go are endless but manly places have the same type of food all the time. Sometimes its nice to mix it up. Some of the better places are far away. The times are very odd, if places were open longer it would be better

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus last year was great I was always close to the places I needed to go, especially classes. The only bad thing is that there isn't much parking.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I actually live off campus and have a great place! You have several choices both close and far away from campus. Many of the apartment complexes have busses that run to the campuses, but with some you will need a car which is not an issue for me. If you do not have a car that is no problem because there are so many places that are close.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's not really my thing but if it is there are lots of parties!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many options for food including Chinese, Indian, and Mexican foods. There are lots of chain restaurants if that is what your prefer. There are also many local restaurants and more up scale places as well. There are late night options and you can even have cookies delivered to your apartment!

5 College Freshman

Administration: There are strict policies on attendance, but that is great because it gives me motivation to come to class. If you are upset with the mandatory attendance, you should not be in college because you will not make good grades if you do not attend the classes which you are paying quite a bit to be enrolled in.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had no issues and didn't even have to make a phone call about my financial aid.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have only had one or two days when I didn't get things that I liked. There are so many options for food and you can get almost anything at any time of the day!

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There is a very nice social atmosphere and it is really easy to fit in and meet others.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Although off campus housing is very expensive there are many options open to students

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.
