Nestled in the majestic hills of West Virginia, this university has it all. A great education as well as activities to make a well rounded student. Free transportation all over the city, great restaurants, plenty of activities. The class sizes are small and everyone is known by name.

A graduate and frequent returner to campus, this place is top fun for students, a great academic experience, and growing place. Traffic sucks though.

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.

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
