What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Make sure you learn to balance your time between studying and having fun.
Dominique from Philadelphia, PA
Take a tour, especially when classes are in session. You will get a great feel for the atmosphere. Also, be sure to explore all three campuses, there is so much to see!

Select a dorm on the campus where most of your classes will be. This allows you to get a little bit of extra rest in the morning.

As a first year student, you do not need a car. Morgantown is a terrible place when it comes to parking. Luckily, everything on the downtown campus is easy to walk to. To get to classes on the other campuses we have the PRT and a bus system. To get to a class on the Evansdale campus, or Engineering Campus, my advice would be to use the bus system because it is much faster then the PRT. The PRT is best to use when going to the Medical Center or the football field, but I think should be avoided as much as possible because it is old and breaks down a lot. Also, if it is possible to live downtown the first year, that would be the best decision. There is a lot more to do on the downtown campus. My suggestion for dorms on the downtown campus would be Summit Hall, The Honors Dorm, or Boreman South.
Mary from Chapel Hill, NC
Before going to WVU be prepared to walk... a lot. Morgantown is very hilly and there are plenty of stairs. There's also not much parking so even if you end up bringing a car, you'll still find yourself on foot most of the time.
Ellen from Orchard Park, NY
Learn from my mistakes! I did not decide on WVU until late, as a matter of fact I was set on attending West Virginia Wesleyan College until financial aid fell through I had to re-evaluate my situation. In July I transitioned to WVU. My advice is to apply early and commit early. This will allow you the greatest opportunity to capitalize on all WVU has to offer. Believe me, being the last to schedule and waiting for them to make a room for you is no fun. You will end up with 8am classes and classes at 9pm, you will live in Evansdale and have all your classes downtown. It’s been a hectic first semester, one that you can avoid by committing early.
Kayla from Clarksburg, WV
Do not bring your car! There isn't anyplace to park.
Julian from Rockville, MD
When coming to campus, be sure to meet new people. I encourage everyone to live with somebody they don't know. Take advantage of the roommate match and find somebody compatible with you. Find a dorm that meets your needs and try all the dining places around campus. Honestly, some places have better food than others. Take the bus as much as possible, especially if you live on Evansdale. However, the PRT is becoming slightly more reliable. Last but not least, explore the Rec Center. It always makes me feel better if i'm feeling down.
Barbara from Elizabeth, WV
If you choose to come to WVU, make sure you are very good at managing your time. Bring lots of warm clothes with you because it snows a lot! You should also try new things, and meet as many new people as you can.
Elizabeth from Charlottesville, VA
Study like it is a job and you will do great.
Don't wait to use the free tutoring, college moves faster than high school.
Drink plenty of water your first week so you don't get dehydrated.
Bring good walking shoes.
WVU Mountaineer
Dont get distracted by all the freedom you have at college. WVU does have a reputation but its a great education system.
Franchesca from Wyckoff, NJ
