A working person's university free of the picturesque campuses and goofy looking people wearing dinner wear to football games. This is for hard working / hard playing people to get a great education at a fair price... HAIL!

West Virginia University offers a vast array of study areas. The school facilities are easy to access and up to date. The school leads the nation in areas of learning such as biometrics and robotics. For in-state students, the college is very affordable. The city of Morgantown is built into the mountains. As a result any non-vehicular transportation can be... More

This is my daughter's second year at WVU. She absolutely loves it there. Beautiful campus, wonderful people, numerous activities available. It's also very welcoming to parents and family. The president, Dr. Gee, is so personable and hands-on. He makes you feel comfortable leaving your child there.

WVU is a wonderful place to work and the students who go to school here are so fortunate to have such a fine place for their education. I've worked in several different university settings and this by far is the best.

I've had two sons graduate from WVU and have been very satisfied with the results. The campus is nice and generally accessible. This is a good choice for a college in WV.
