    I would definitely recommend getting to the campus early before school starts with a map and a schedule of everywhere your classes are and hunting those places down! You'll be grateful when you start and aren't one of the wandering freshman.

    -GO TO CLASS. At this Division I institution, half the battle is against distractions. -Seek help. If you're struggling with any class, there's nothing wrong with talking to classmates, the professors, or tutors. Even if your pride is scorched for a moment, it's way better than your GPA. -Work on-campus. Federal Work-study is more or less being paid to do your homework here. Take advantage (even if it is just pocket change) -Have fun. Opportunities abound to make friends (inside and outside of your major), relax, and enjoy being a student. Again, as this is a MAJOR party school, make sure you don't go overboard.

    Apply for housing right away the rooms fill up fast. Also look into the honors program early on for a chance to get into the honor dorm.

    Definitely live in a freshman dorm when you first get here, its the easiest and most fun way to make new friends. Also, take advantage of all there is on and off campus. There is so much WVU makes available to their students no matter what it is that they need, you just have to look.

    Be prepared to party like it's your job, but don't let it get in the way of your schoolwork, because that tends to happen. You might think you want to stay off campus first semester, but I cannot stress enough how fun and exciting the dorms are. Sure, you have to share space with other people you just met, but it gives you a chance to get involved in tons of activities, and make new friends.
