Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    WVU is definitely the place for me. I would regret not going here. Although it is a large school, the campus is split into two campuses. This may sound daunting, but because of my major, I have been on the same one of the two, so it feels like I'm on a small campus. I love, love, LOVE it!

    The people are really friendly and it is relatively easy to make new friends. A great way to meet friends is by joining a club. Beautiful campus.

    There is so much to do at WVU, and the nightlife is king. Every night there is something to do, based on the fact that there are so many students here. The people around you are basically all from the Mid-Atlantic mixed with a lot of in-state kids, but the variety of people you meet is still large enough. Everyone here is just looking to have a good time and very friendly. You won't find too many unreasonable people.

    Aside from my old roommate that I lived with for 3 months, it is absolutely wonderful here. The atmosphere is good. It does get cold though. And the good parties are an added bonus.
