Most Helpful Review for West Virginia University

WVU is a big school; however, I have not met a professor who is not willing to help students outside of class. Even though there can be classrooms filled with 200 students at a time, it is very easy to get to know the professor and to work with them one-on-one to really understand the material. As long as the student is willing to work, the professor will work with them. Along with professors being a very useful resource, there are other options on campus such as tutors, study groups, and teacher assistants.

    West Virginia University, a school bursting with pride and excitement, is a great school to attend! Just be aware that there is a lot of partying and alcohol, which can be easily avoided but also easily tempted into. The campus is incredibly large as well, so finding things and making time schedules to get somewhere is really confusing at first!

    West Virginia University is a socialization haven which challenges you to focus on the path you choose. However, if you find that you aren't fulfilled in your major, you can seek help from academic advisors (who are eager to assist you). After all, you are responsible for your own educational experience, and your time at WVU will prove how committed to that experience you are.

    Being a student at West Virginia University is an incredible experience. Know that no matter where you're from, you will wholeheartedly embrace the Mountaineer spirit. No other school can turn out such a large, yet close knit student body like WVU does.

    West Virginia University is unlike any other school I've seen. The atmosphere here is warm and welcoming; everyone is friends when you're a Mountaineer. Not only that, but there is a wide range of classes--from big lectures to small classrooms--to help you get the most learning out of your time at WVU.

    This university is highly unprofessional, they misplaced my documents at first ; also they are not very helpful in their approach; plus the students studying here are bigoted and snooty.

    I like the school, the campus is very nice. The dining hall food could use a little more work and so could the public transportation. The school is very diverse in the students attending from other states, but altogether a very Caucasian community.

    It is a great college. I am glad I came here. Coming to WVU and not some other college has been the experience in my life. Its a lot harder then high school.

    Absolutely fantastic school which has a very personal feel in terms of your relationship with the professors and other students. There are plenty of opportunities to improve yourself while also getting out and enjoying the college life all at the same time. It is also one of the most cost efficient schools in America which is sometimes cheaper to attend for out of state students than it would be to attend a college in their own state.
