    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!

    Talk to people in your classes, and make friends. The people here are extremely friendly, and you'll have a great time. Also, keep up with all of your assignments. WVU is a great place to learn, and the teachers make it fun, so take advantage of it.
