College Life Rating

The social atmosphere is great. I am in the process of joining a fraternity; the athletic program is great. I am a Mountain Maniac, and enjoy attending the football and basketball games. I have made a lot of friends at the school, my dorm in Lyons tower is great

The atmosphere at West Virginia University is amazing! There are so many clubs and associations to be a part of that no matter what your interests are; there is something there for you. The athletic programs are top-notch and filled with Mountaineer pride. There is nothing like being at one of WVU’s athletic events.
