3 College Freshman

Academics: Basically I'll put it this way: the people who come here to succeed, succeed. And the people who come just for the party fail. The professors can care less so it is really what you make of it. There are plenty of options for extra help though.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are all the downtown party houses that look crappy and are overpriced but they are in prime location and are the best places to party at. There are also cheap quality apartments around town that are better options as well. Everything is in walking distance. the university offers great assistance with finding housing. There are also new buildings being built.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Many students receive scholarships, the standards aren't high so a lot of people with good high school transcripts receive money and many people in financial need receive money.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: There locals have lots of school spirit and are nice

3 College Junior

Party Scene: School offers activities and so do locals.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is the worse. High rent and crappy places. Parking is next to none and you have to climb hills to get anywhere.

4 College Junior

Majors: My major class are taken very seriously. Are staff is supportive and job offers are always being offered.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: A few girls have told be about guys making comments to them but never any pressure for foundling. Most girls walk in groups.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There plenty of options just costly.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The staff was very in icing and willing to help. I had no problem with the paperwork. This is my third college and the easiest to apply for.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I don't play sports, but there's always a lot of talk about them. Everyone can't wait for game day. They camped for a week to be in the front for game day.

3 College Junior

Administration: Parking is awful. Do not run out of time on the meteor or you will have a ticket. I've never seen anyone get in trouble for smoking. Attendance, depends on class, professor, and major. Most kids are respectful so I don't see to much going on unless it comes to winning football games. They are very strict on behaviors after football games.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There's a lot to do, but sometimes it feels u safe to walk at night alone. People are very friendly and it's easy to meet new people. The school offers late night activities for their students. morgantown as a whole is fun and adventurous.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I've never heard anyone say anything negative about Greeks. They seem to be active in the school.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many nice places to eat off campus. There are normal places like apples or olive garden, but there are also many differently cluttered places around town.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the houses don't look to great but there are many apartment complexes which are very nice. They are building new apartments with many great amenitities

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I have met many great people at this school. Everyone cares for each other as it has a great family feel to it.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are rarely any crimes committed, but when there are everyone is immediately contacted via text explaining where and what has happened.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: greek life is very important and big here, but lots of parties are thrown by non-greek life people too

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: average college food. chickfil a in the lair gets so old

College Freshman

Majors: i haven't applied for a major

3 College Freshman

Local Area: not much to do outside campus, the locals are very friendly and it's a very pretty scenic area

5 College Freshman

Athletics: our football tailgates are legendary, our football team is amazing

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: cops literally do not care, parties are absolutely insane. #1 party school rating is NOT an overstatement

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: everything is bad for you, cheap, and open until 5am

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.
