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.

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.
