Be ready for the constant shuffle of students walking everywhere and roads which go up and down. It is definitely a place where activity is always going on. Overall, though the building on campus are nice to look at and there is plenty to do there, just be prepared to walk everywhere once you can find a place to park.... More

I finally got to visit West Virginia University. The campus is beautiful, Clean, and organized. There is a bus system and Tram system for the students. Everything is easily accessible, and I am very proud to be going to this school.

I'm from Morgantown, born and raised and never left, and I also attended WVU for my undergraduate degrees and I wouldn't go any place else, it's home and I love it!!! The traffic can be a little hectic at times when there are tons of students in attendance and football games, but that's what living in a university town is... More

We stayed at the Waterfront Place Hotel (soon to be a Marriott Property) adjacent to WVU. This facility is actually a destination for tourists as there are exhibits inside pertaining to WVU including an actual PRT car where you can take your own computer generated ''selfies'' that you can actually send to yourself!

I went to a anniversary party at a hotel there. Very up scale atmosphere, they had valet parking. It was like being in France, but in the country.

WVU is just a charming university and it is pleasant to walk around the buildings, visit the Mountainlair, take pictures in front of the Woodburn and enjoy one of the best university campus in America. If you go to Morgantown, take your time to walk to the University and enjoy the seeing of nice buildings and feel the Mountaineer atmosphere.

The environment of West Virginia University makes it a great place to go to school. The students of WVU have a lot of school spirit and school pride. The school is large and has an event going on every week. Sports are always having games to let off some steam at. The people are great. They hire great teachers so... More
