    WVU offers so many opportunities to their students, as well as making each student a priority despite the large class sizes.

    Honestly, if you're from West Virginia, this is a great school for a low price. Even as an out-of-state student, I think West Virginia provides a university that is much cheaper for out-of-staters. While it is still expensive, I really think it's worth it because they offer so much for you to go there, and I've been learning a large amount of things in just a short time of going there so far.

    While tuition continues to climb annually, WVU still remains one of the most affordable institutions in the region.

    I give this five stars as a former in-state, full-time, on-campus student. The tuition was fantastic for the wealth of education I gained, and the variance in experiences. The academic advisers are extremely helpful in keeping you on the right track, though you still need to mind your plan of study on your own. Don't let any rumors fool you- the school does not try to keep people from graduating to increase revenue. I changed my major and still made it out in four years. :) Not sure if this is still the case, but colleagues from New Jersey often attended because it was cheaper to go to WVU as an out-of-state student than to attend an NJ university in-state.
