Alexandra

West Virginia University is best known for the way the college provides a safe environment for students to study and become successful. The university also creates an enviornment for people to socialize and make friends. It seems a bit corny but college can sometimes be a difficult place to get used to. It's much bigger than a highschool and ten times more difficult acedemically. Not to mention having to be by youself. West Virginia University is a comfortable and stable place for a student to relax and study in peace.

Jessica

Some may say that West Virginia University is known as one of the best party schools in the nation-- I think that WVU is more than that. I transfered to WVU as a Junior (after receiving an Associate's Degree from my local community college) and have been welcomed to a school with spirit, enthusiasm, a drive for education and a sense of community. WVU's football games are always filled with blue and gold, and it doesn't matter where you came from or why you're there-- all that matter's is that you're a Mountaineer.

Joshua

I would have to say that the athletic pursuits of the university are our greatest achievements, however, the high amount of job placement, to me, is the most impirtant thing and West Virginia boasts an unusally large job placement rate.

Jordan

We are knowing as a large party school but its academics are overlooked. We have alot of the top schools for many majors in the country. Such as our engineering and Forensic programs. once you get on campus you realize that not everyone on campus cares about partying an is in fact more intrested in the school spirt and that everyone is treated the same.

Chelsea

Unfortunately, one of the things that West Virginia University is best know for is partying, however, I feel that there are many other things that the school could easily be known for, such as great athletics or academics, if they would simply put the time, effort, and money into cracking down on the underage drinking problem.

I cannot deny there is a lot of partying at times, but I do feel that it is no more than any other typical college or university.

No other school has as much school spirit as WVU and every teacher I have come across is dedicated and most are excellent at what they do.

In a word, FOOTBALL!!! Go Mountaineers... but also WVU is known as a premier party school. It has been identified in the top 5 party schools in the country many times. Fun is certainly on the agenda for most students. Unfortunately, WVUs academic programs are frequently overshadowed by this reputation. As a Forensic Identification major, I know that WVU's Forensic Program is one of the best in the nation. Developed in conjunction with the FBI, it's instructors are well-experienced and knowlegeable.
