    There is so much to do here with a lot of opportunities for outdoors adventures. The rec center is also world class. Get involved in a club. Football games are an entirely unique experience; nothing like singing "Country Roads" with 60,000 others after a home win. But keep the focus first on classes. Go to class, keep ahead of the class work and you will be ok. Read the platform and it really explains what it means to be a mountaineer:

    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.
