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.

    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.

    WVU is one big family. The academics are top priority, but so are the activities. Everyone supports each other no matter what.

    It's a very large and very big party school. The professors are not always on top of what they should be and a lot of the course work may not follow the syllabus. The basic amenities can be very difficult to get to if you're on the Evansdale campus because there is barely any food options.
