Freshman · Criminology

I love WVU and can’t imagine going to any other university. WVU has given me a worth of knowledge that is irreplaceable and I have far succeeded than I could ever imagine. This is my university home.

Freshman · Microbiology

I came here expecting a large university with a small community feel, and that’s exactly what I got. The social benefits of a large school have been great, along with the surplus of resources provided for anything you want to do. Everyone here is super supportive of your goals and will work to help you achieve them, and that’s where the community feel comes in, along with all the familiar faces around campus.
