I'm the fourth generation of my family to attend West Virginia Univesity. Growing up there was alway pride in attending this school. Attending this school has taught me that I am not the only one with pride, everyone here takes pride. I love going to all the different sporting events and seeing thousands of students cheering on the Moutaineers. West Virginia is a small state, so WVU is the pride of the state. Every student knows this and everyone does their part to make this the best university around. The best part about WVU is the pride.

I feel as though the best thing about my school is its sense of unity and pride. School colors are displayed everywhere and you won't walk down the street without seeing someone wearing gold and blue. We love our sports teams and our marching band.

WVU was a wonderful school! The student union was always doing things for the student population and the teachers were consistantly attentave and top notch. WVU has a rail system that gets you all around campus so you dont have to worry about parking and such. The diversity of the students was varied and that introduced me to many different lifestyles and cultures. The price of tuition was low enough that it made sence to choose to attend.

The resources that are available. All of the teachers are very helpful, there are study groups, free tutoring and so many other people around campus to help you out. A lot of the campus courses post stuff online too so things are available in your dorm room and in class. The city itself rests in the hills and by a river.

Pride is the best thing about my shool because when you're on campus you feel a sense that you belong to something great and bigger than anyone can imagine.

Kayla

The best thing about my school is the diversity. I grew up in a place where there was no major difference between anyone. At my college, I learned so much more about different religions, opinions, and situations that people believe in or grew up around. I believe that this has really made me a better person because I am more open to hear the opinions of others and to try and understand where they are coming from in different situations.

Sara

The best thing about WVU, is the student body. Our students are extremely friendly and helpful. You can ask any random person on the street for directions and they will help you and make sure you get to where you need to go. They also have more school spirit than any school I have ever seen.

Melinda

The best thing about my school would have to be the people. There is always someone there to help you if you need it or if you need to know where a room or place is there is always someone that you can call or ask on the sidewalk and they don't hesitate to give you some guidence.

Loniann

WVU is a really big school which is kind of nice if you are looking forward to meeting a lot of people. The courses are usually very well organized, and the teachers are generally pretty nice. Most teachers are very responsive to e-mail and have office hours in which they can help you one on one.

I think the best thing about my school is the close-knit community we have. First of all, there is an amazing support group across campus that is willing and ready to listen to students. This group contains students as well as faculty, professors, and staff members. Secondly, we are all like-minded. We are at school to learn and have fun also. If you have a group of like-minded people, things will go well. Finally, we have one common bond, and that is Jesus Christ. We are able to encourage each other in the good and bad times.

Janet

The best thing was the educational experience as an international student. It was great to learn in a different enviroment and to experince a different culture

Shanna

I consider the best thing about West Virginia University is the social life. I have heard from many of my peers they chose this school over a better academic college, because of the social life that's possible here. The atmosphere on weekends and especially during football games is everything I imagined when I was younger . The academics at this school is not as rigorous, but it still challenges me enough to study nightly. Just because the social life is so big does not mean that you can party away the week and expect to get good grades.

Emily

The school spirit here is amazing! No matter race, religion, or background, everyone in this university town comes together around sporting events. It's easy to feel like you're a part of something at WVU.

Constance

I think the best part about my school is the location. It is located in a college-town, it is easy to get around, and the campus is basically the entire neighborhood. No matter where you go, WVU is the main focus. It is easy to meet people and figure out how go get around. THe people are friendly and there is always something to do. Also, there are plenty of places to keep to yourself and study if need be. I love it! I am so lucky to have found my perfect school!

The school has a lot of trips and activities for people who like the outdoors. There are backpacking trips to south america every year over the winter break and it looks like so much fun. I am going on a backpacking trip over the spring break to Utah and I am so excited for it. If it wasn't for this school trip I wouldn't have a way of going on this trip. There are also other trips for people with all different interests!

The over all feeling on game day. People LOVE mountianeer football. I know of many alumni who have season tickets and have barely missed a game since they graduated.

Shaneil

The best thing about my school probably would be the actual campus and classrooms, libraries, rec center.

School spirit at WVU is amazing. The turn out for basketball games and football games by the students is very impressive. WVU is located in a state where there are no pro teams in the area, so the state backs and supports the school with everything they have.

PRIDE, teachers, curriculum, feasibility, enviroment.

Katherine

There are tremendous amounts of school spirit, even after graduating. There are many alumni who travel all over the country for our school's football and basketball games. It is almost impossible to get season tickets for any sports, because most alumni will travel from all over to come back for home sporting events as well. Even those who have not yet attended the school have just as much spirit, and participate in school events. I was attending university footballs games from the time I was born, and now my family's young children are carrying on the tradition.
