4 College Senior

Administration: It's not too strict and they still let people have fun but they're around when they're needed.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I received a scholarship from the school solely on my high school GPA and ACT score. It was easy and automatically awarded. The scholarship/financial aid office is also really helpful if you have questions.

4 College Senior

Campus Food: There a great options and not so great options. If you eat in the same dining hall a lot food will start to get really repetitive.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: There are some really nice options but they have a downside. Honors requires you to be in the Honors college and Lincoln is on Evansdale which can make it a hassle to get to class downtown. Other dorms like Summit and Stalnaker are okay. They aren't super up to date but definitely decent. Dadismen and Boreman aren't to cleanest but I don't know a lot about them or the rest of the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The dorms have rules but they're easy to follow.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Apply for other scholarships early.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Mountain lair food is great but bad for you.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Cost seems high, but it is nice attending here.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: I live on campus simply because of the convenience

5 College Student

Administration: Rules need to be enforced in every aspect of life So I personally do not mind the rules and enforcement as far as academics go you still have time when all the work is done to socialize

Campus Food: I am personally a picky eater so I use my meal plans primarily at The Mountain Lair at Burger King and occasionally dine at Summit Hall over all the food I prefer is good . I wish I had more options but I mostly eat Pizza and Chicken so I limit myself.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: close to classes and transportation socially great , other fellow classmates seem overall friendly .As far as cost goes W.V.U. costs are a little steep but I am an out of state student , excited to find a place among other great minds . W.V.U. was my first choice and I am the first of many generations in our family to have the opportunity

Greek Life: As a student involved in Greek life, I am very supportive of it. I like that I have the opportunity to be a part of my campus and keep myself busy doing something worthwhile. Greek life makes up a fairly small percent of the campus with around 2,000 students, but it is still very present. Through greek life, I can walk anywhere and see someone that I know through my sorority. While I have made a lot of friends, I still have a lot of friends that I met freshman year who are not greek. I lived in my sorority house this past year and I had a great experience. I even paid less than WVU dorms. I had the opportunity to live with my best friends and my house mom, chef, and cleaning lady are all wonderful. Many of the greek houses are very nice, but the fraternity houses could be cleaner inside. Overall greek life is good at WVU, however it is a lot different than greek life at southern schools. It is not a big deal if you aren't in it here.

Athletics: I love WVU because of the atmosphere. Football games are well attended. WVU fans are some of the greatest fans in the world and they all have an indescribable love for their school, their teams, and their state. WVU basketball had a great season this year which boosted moral even more!

Off-Campus Dining: There are many dining options in Morgantown. High Street especially has many great restaurants and they are in walking distance. There are barely any student discounts available off campus.

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.
