5 College Freshman

Athletics: The nationwide support for the athletics at WVU is awesome, everyone loves cheering on the mountaineers and you see the flying WV everywhere you go on campus and around the country.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school is currently adding to its vast collection of university owned apartments off campus. Great quality but can be pricy.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Tons of quality places to go on high st. and evansdale.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are doing a good job in moving the University forward and responding to student needs but they have recently cracked down on the party scene pretty hard.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Always tons to do every night of the week if you want. You can go to the large selection of clubs and bars on high st. or go to sunnyside and hit a house party.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food is good, lots of options but lack of quality at times and across all dining halls.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus is chill, lots of different things to do on weekends.

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's an awesome selection of off-campus dining but the expenses do add up.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Strictness definitely depends on where you stay. The Honors dorm and other high-end dorms have much stricter policy.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Just keep up with your information and make sure it has the aid you're supposed to receive.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go out often because the party scenes are crazy around here. Depending on your view, it could be the best or worse.

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.
