4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I like the parties at WVU. I hear that it used to be a lot different, but I still enjoy them. There is a wide variety of nightlife. I go to both house parties and fraternity parties. I am a member of greek life, and I love it because I have met so many people.

Campus Food: I liked the food in the lair, but the hours are inconvenient. I like Tazikis and Chic Fil A a lot.

Campus Housing: I enjoyed living on campus my freshman year. Lincoln Hall was a great dorm to live in. It was very spacious and clean. The cost of the school is great for in state students and fairly inexpensive for out of state.

Campus Food: It depends on the menu and where you go. Sometimes they have good options, most of the time not. Not many appealing healthy options and if you're a picky eater, good luck.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It depends on which dorm you stay in. Obviously the newer dorms are better but the old dorms are ok too.

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.

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.
