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.

    All the professors I had are very helpful and passionate about their job. There are many great opportunities to choose from, so you can never be bored. The WVU mobile app is super helpful; it helped me learn where buildings are on campus.

    Take me home country roads right? Well that couldnâ??t be more true from the feelings you get after just visiting WVU. Itâ??s like a Grandma on Sunday warmed hearted and welcoming with open arms.

    WVU has a large range of programs and majors and the professors are very dedicated! The location is beautiful, and most things are located very close to each other. Faculty is determined to helping each person succeed in their intended field.

    It's a beautiful campus with a lot of great people. You never feel alone or unsafe, and you'll always feel at home. Academically and socially it's a great environment.

    A lot of people judge WVU (because of the social atmosphere), but I have come to discover that WVU offers a great, quality education.
