I talk about how West Virginia University has a huge population while still being able to maintain a great learning experience. West Viriginia University challenges you to do your best. The professors are very encouraging and helpful if you need assistance. There are many libraries and study labs to achieve information you are unsure about. On the other hand, West Viriginia University is good at all sports. Football is the main sport at West Virginia University, but don't give up if you are female. Because, the women's basketball and soccer team is exceptionally good.
