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

Amazing time with my family and seeing where they attended school. The places they hung out at as well the different parts of the campus. We got to see some star athletes for both basketball and football walking on campus. I loved the tribute to where the old football stadium stood.

The campus for WVU is beautiful how it sits in the mountains. It is actually 3 campuses that are easy to get to. They have a monorail that goes to each campus for students and that is really cool. You don't have to worry about freshman 15 here as you are walking up and down mountains to get to class.... More

Interesting to visit, glad none of my children will be going there. WVU is supposed to be a good school, but we were there in February and it was COLD!!! and those crazy college kids were running around in shorts and t-shirts!! There was very little to do but freeze. We tried to walk around the historic downtown, but there... More

We took a very good tour of the school. Not only did we meet with an admissions person, they connected us up with a professor in the area my daughter wanted to study. We really loved that they have a monorail system connecting the 3 campuses.

Great City, beautiful campus! Wonderful little shops and restaurants downtown/within walking distance to a lot or ride the PRT (personal rapid transit) to see the town/campus. Sometimes difficult to navigate in car, until you get the hang of the lay out of the city. Can be a little congested when students are in town but the roads are being repaired... More

West Virginia University in Morgantown is a great college campus to visit. We took a tour bus all throughout campus and visited everything from football stadium, the coliseum, health science Center, student recreation center, as well as a college dorm. If you plan on visiting the campus I recommend you call the welcome center and book a tour.

Nice campus to see if you are just driving by. Not much to do around it. It has a lot of nice shops and restaurants and local coffee shops.

First visit to see the university. Very impressive grounds and buildings. Neatly kept. Amazed at how close to the city yet felt so lush and far away. Friendly staff. Mountain lair was amazing. Whether you are looking at the school to attend or not it is worth walking around campus.

A great university with a great tradition. Athletics and Academics are second to none in the area. The town is a wonderful place to live.
