71% of students gave West Virginia University 5 stars overall.
I am very happy with my experience at WVU. The environment is perfect for students who are away from home for the first time. The campus is easy to get around, especially with the PRT. I enjoyed the Adventure WVU program, it gave me the opportunity to meet students in a outdoor setting. The gym is fantastic, I use it everyday. I also have made many friends, in my dorm and fraternity.
I am a prospective student. However, I am very excited about the many opportunities (academic, athletic, social, and otherwise) that West Virginia University has to offer their students. I look forward to the challenge and the memories I will make at WVU!
