WHAT I LIKED

I enjoy how large the campus is yet how much of a community Morgantown feels like.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining halls are poor in condition and are constantly being inspected by health inspectors. I also think that while it isn't crazy expensive, the lack of scholarships for non-honors students make it cost significantly more.

WHAT I LIKED

WVU is an amazing university, but of course, it isn't perfect (nothing in life is). The professors are amazing, but some give you more welcoming vibes than others (not to say they don't like their students, but some teachers are just very schedule-oriented, but most will make time to talk to you after class).

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There isn't much I don't like at WVU, but the dining halls could be a bit better.

WHAT I LIKED

WVU offers a lot of opportunities to students from all different backgrounds. There are a lot of ways to get involved on campus. The research here is amazing, and if you want to pursue research of any kind definitely look into some of the programs here to find what is right for you.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining halls have been under a lot of fire for health code violations. I did not really enjoy the dining hall at all when I had a meal plan. The food that tasted good was often bad for you and all the healthy options tasted like cardboard. The campus is also a little tough to walk because of all the hills. I also wish that there was just one campus instead of three separate ones

WHAT I LIKED

Met a few really good people. Had a handful of amazing professors. The scenery was always gorgeous. Beyond that, not a whole bunch.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Administration. Office of Academic Affairs. The number of miscommunications and mistakes made by the University left me devastated mentally and emotionally.

WHAT I LIKED

I came in during a turbulent covid year, so I had to expect some compromises. But the cooperate greed and sheer focus on money have led my college experience to be less than ideal.
