West Virginia University is a public research university in Morgantown, West Virginia. It was founded by former President Andrew Jackson. WVU has more than 30,000 students and offers 150 majors across its eight colleges.
The school is best known for its engineering program, which ranks 12th in the nation; however, there are plenty of other subjects that will challenge you academically at WVU, including business and communications.
If you want to live on campus during your freshman year but don't want to share an apartment with strangers from Craigslist (which doesn't seem very safe), then look into Rush Hall or Pennington Hall where many first-year students stay. If you'd rather be off campus but still close by so that your parents can drive up whenever they want without having to worry about traffic jams or getting lost trying find their way through downtown Morgantown, consider renting an apartment close enough that friends can easily come visit without needing directions!
With so many students and a large campus, there are plenty of opportunities for social activities. From Greek life to sports clubs and more, WVU has it all!
The school has multiple libraries where you can study or just hang out with friends. They have plenty of computers available if you need to use one. The campus is very safe, even at night when it’s dark out!
