College Sophomore

Party Scene: Hey,

So my freshman year I thought the party scene was incredible but after a year of doing that it honestly got a little boring. I do not go out really anymore because I do not approve of the crazyness that goes on. It just lessens the value of my degree which honestly makes me so mad because I am trying so hard in order to do something meaningful with my life.

Campus Food: As long as you go the grab and go's, Stalnaker and the lair, YOU WILL BE FINE! If you live in towers and you have to go to Cafe Evansdale just be prepared to be grossed out on multiple occasions. Thank goodness they always have a salad bar and sandwhices.

Campus Housing: Honestly, living on campus is the best way to go. But if you don't want to spend an arm and a leg don't stay in dorms longer than you have to. After my first year in dorms, I decided to rent a house with three of my friends. It was a very smart choice because it is the ease of living on campus but not paying too much.

Campus Food: Too many fast food places

Campus Housing: Not bad but way too expensive.

Scholarships: there are few available WVU scholarships. They don't stack with each other, either.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: I mean, it's okay, but I noticed there were a lot of people. Can't I just have my alcohol to drink alone, without all the people? Maybe not.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: food in general is okay. Some dorms are worse than others, but the food in the lair is good.

Off-Campus Dining: much better than meal plan food options

3 College Freshman

Administration: prt breaks down a lot

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties are everywhere when its nice out

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Its not terrible but not the best

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's great here! Your social life shouldn't be a problem even as an engineer! There are many people. You are guaranteed to meet a new person everyday. There is also something always going on. There are many organizations/club that you can join and everyone is friendly. The best part is that the ratio is 1:1. Dorms are alright and have a certain amount of rules, but that is expected with dorms. The PRT might seem cool at first, but you'll eventually hate it. It breaks down at times, but there are always buses running to take you where you need to go.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We attend a very educational career fair for my first year seminar class.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: You always see people walking around with their letters on, that's where most of the big parties are. But you're not looked down upon if you're not in one.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Date rape is used A LOT at the frats. So be very careful where you put your drink and watch it at all times.

Campus Housing: I hated the dorms, people would mostly describe the dorms as insane asylums or hospitals. They were downright depressing.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: If you're into the party scene, this is the place to be. They don't stop for anything. They riot and cause destruction with any excuse they can.

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.
