We were there for a campus tour. Our tour guide was wonderful and the 2.5 hour tour was very thorough. Our guide, Kirsten, even spent about 30 minutes talking with us and answering questions.

Always majestic and impressive. This was the first time in my life I have been there and there wasn’t a football game going on. So it was nice to see it like that.

The School has an excellent Campus and The City is most welcoming to students, and their families. The City is surprisingly Progressive. We are opening A NEW BUSINESS THERE IN THE FALL. excited to become new residents of Morgantown.

WVU is my son's first choice for college. WVU promotes a great family atmosphere and very welcoming. They aim to make you a part of their Mountaineer family and willing to help you in any way they can. Definitely a school worth its money.

We walked around the campus and took the campus tour. The staff was so helpful as well as the guide. Both of my teenagers loved the school and it felt right. Hoping we will be back soon.
