Campus Housing: On campus living is difficult at first adjusting to a sharing a room with a complete stranger but gets easier as the semester and year goes on. It makes it easier to get to all your classes and make a lot of new friends.

Off-Campus Housing: My sister lives off campus and her apartment is beautiful and big enough to hold her, her husband, and her two dogs.

Off-Campus Dining: THe dining off campus is nice. It allows my family and i to enjoy a meal when they come up to visit me.

4 College Student

Administration: The rules are not that strict but there are guidelines. The college allows you to have a great time but you have to keep your head together and not totally lose control.

4 College Student

Scholarships: WVU has offered me many scholarships that are easy to get but tough to keep, but it gives you something to strive for.

Campus Food: The food is fine. I primarily go to summit when i have time, if not i will just wonder to the lair.

5 College Student

Campus Housing: Ever since I was a kid i have wanted to go to WVU. All throughout my senior year of high-school i have done multiple trips up to Morgantown, and every time i go up i get that much more excited to become a mountaineer. I have been accepted into the honors dorm and the honors hall. The dorms are amazing suite style that allow me to have my own space but still have a roommate. I enjoy it.

Overall Experience: I am so glad I chose this school.

Overall Experience: There are always events where they showcase internships and job fairs.

Health & Safety: The Health Center is much more convenient now that it is in the Evansdale campus.

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life, however I do not plan to join.

Off-Campus Housing: Depending on where you select where you live off-campus depends on the prices. Typically off-campus housing has buses that travel from the complex to the campus to limit the car use which is good. However, some off-campus housing do have parking/parking garages that come with the purchase of an off-campus residence. Key: The closer the off-campus residency is to the main campus the less quality and more expensive it can get.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of options to choose from such as traditional American food to Thai. Morgantown is trying to build more places where more food places can be available.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The police do their job and the dorms have insurance that they don't want to go up at the end of the year so they have strict rules for students to follow.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: It is whatever you make it. That is all.

Campus Food: I would definitely avoid going to Cafe Evansdale and Boreman Bistro. If the food had more quality for the meal plan, than it would be better to want to have. Other than that, I like eating on my meal plan/campus food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I would recommend having a residence in a dormitory near classes. Being on Evansdale is very convenient for engineering students. However Evansdale's campus is a ways from Downtown campus where people like to be during the day to socialize.

Off-Campus Housing: Depends on what kind of housing you get but prices are ridiculous

3 College Freshman

Administration: All depends on who you are dealing with

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Depending on your situation financial aid varies.

Campus Housing: Housing at WVU is average. The nicer dorms on campus are on Evansdale because they were recently built.

Off-Campus Housing: There are a lot of places to stay, but there are also a lot of people looking for places to stay so you have to be on the ball.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of great food, especially for drunken nights. The taco truck on High Street is pretty banging.

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.
