Nice college town

Very vibrant, colorful, active college town. Surprised that a small college has so much to offer. Love the campus box train, cheap foods close by, great staff at WVU.

I have been to numerous conferences and arts festivals at this campus. The scenery is as beautiful as the school

Our daughter goes here so we visit often. Love the school. The town and all that there is to do. Daughter has a lot of friends and it seems to be a great school with a lot to offer. She talks about all her teachers and how wonderful they all are to us often

Lots of great historical buildings can be found on the downtown campus. Great student center is worth a visit. Nice views of the river valley from several places.

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.

WVU put on an excellent program for potential future Mountaineers. Very organized, well run and lots of super friendly students and staff to answer all questions.

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!
