    Do your research. Make sure you have all technical stuff taken care of before you arrive. Also, always be on top of the technical stuff throughout the semester.

    In this diverse place you can easily get distracted by everything and anything the town is very crowed especially during game days. Despite having an outstanding number of students the president of WVU made sure that everyone gets academic help as a matter of fact there is one main library downtown where you can study and there are multiple study labs around campus where you can study and also get free tutoring. As for athletes students they have the advantage of free tutoring on the daily basic for their success. You can not complain about not having a place to study or get academic help in WVU.

    Only choose this school if you're close to home and you can deal with your classmates non stop partying. The professors do not always update grades(I entered mid terms with not even a single grade in the grade book and I finish the semester in a week with only 3 grades in one class). Make sure you talk to a professor in your prospective major and figure out which classes are required and look up on rate my professor some professors teaching your section to chose the best instructor during orientation.

    Don't be daunted by the split campus- there is always transportation available. Put yourself out there! Don't refuse to go somewhere because no one you know is going- go anyway and make friends! Try your best to find a major that you really love so that you can enjoy your classes to the fullest. The work isn't overwhelming if you love what you do.

    Apply to everything early. The earlier you apply, the more likely you are to get the dorms, classes, etc you want. Also, do not be scared of the partying vibe here, not everyone participates!
