Morgantown is a great place to be and experience the WVU atmosphere. Can't go wrong to visit and see the local scenes.

I am a student here, but WVU is a great university! It's beautiful and spread out and Woodburn Hall is really pretty too! It is a great place for education and I love it here. The only possible negative is if you're walking around the campus, there are lots of hills/steps!

The nicest university employees we have ever met. Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. The atmosphere at WVU is positive and energetic. We loved it!

We just recently moved into a vacation home we had at Cheat Lake. We are really enjoying the area. There is so much to do here especially sporting events, but also cultural and general recreational activities. We live outside the city so we don't have to deal with the city traffic, noise, etc. the city has two interstates and a... More

WVU is a great school to attend, and a great place to visit if in the area. Filled with rich history, there is plenty to see and do on campus, as well as in Morgantown.

Very sprawled out but what big campus is not? Downtown campus is beautiful. Old school buildings but upkept very nicely. I am not from wv but I could not be happier with my choice. Forewarning, walking the campus can be very tiring due to everything being in a hill but just think, it will get you in shape :)

WVU's nursing program is in the old hospital. This building is like navigating a maze and takes some getting used to. I parked in the parking garage and found the parking fees quite pricey. The bathroom are old and need updated. Elevators are slow due to mass of people. However, the nursing instructors and Trauma instructors are friendly. I also... More

From the viewpoint of an Academic Professor, I know that West Virginia University is a Tier One Research Institution of Higher Education (IHE.) For several reasons, WVU and environs are cutting edge technology and research. As a Proud Mountaineer, my view is that WVU plays second fiddle to none. We have been Mountaineer supporters for 60+ years. WVU football and... More
