I believe that some of the recent postsBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I believe that some of the recent posts about WVU on this site, are multiples by the same dissatisfied individuals. You can especially tell, as their comments have a very similar theme in each of them. Stop concentrating on the "party school" stuff whiners. All large universities are "party schools." NO BIG DEAL people. So stop using that as an excuse for being whiney little babies and not being able to MAKE IT at a big time school. Perhaps you guys would be better suited at a small REGIONAL college. Perhaps a U of Whatever at North Jersey branch school or the like? But don't knock the OPPORTUNITY with which you were GIFTED, to attend a state FLAGSHIP university. So, now that you've failed, you're trying to blame the school? Oh, you were fine to take advantage of the admissions policies at WVU, that allow an opportunity for WV students from poor areas (Southern WV - NOT where WVU is located, BTW), to get a college education. You weren't GREATFUL that WVU saved your SORRY A&&ES and gave you that opp. never deserved to go to a big school like WVU in the first place - and you were weeded out. You freakin' BLEW IT didn't you? So, your con is over you whiners. Go home and shut up. WVU is a great school with awesome facilities, a Big 12 (for God's sakes!) sports program and some of the highest starting salaries for GRADUATES than from any school in America. So please.....quit your whining. It's not only immature, it makes you look really weak. WEST VIRGINIA BY GOD! WORK HARD, PLAY HARD!!

West Virginia is truly a great University.BrightNutrition
West Virginia is truly a great University. The school really does care about its students and shows this by providing fancy dinners in the dining hall before Christmas Break and Spring Break. I only stayed at WVU for one year due to home sickness but I wish I would have given it another chance. The scenery and campus is absoutley beautiful. Students do love to party but what school doesn't? There are plenty of students who are not into drinking constantly it may just take a little bit of time to find them. The professors really want you to learn and the school spirit is just phenomenal at WVU. The school has plenty of extracurriculars for students to engage in and the dorms are very well kept (I lived in the towers both Brooke and Braxton- I switched rooms halfway through the year). Forever thankful for all the things WVU taught me & forever a mountaineer at heart even though I transferred closer to home.

Came as a Mechanical/Aero engineer.Quite BrightEngineering Department
Came as a Mechanical/Aero engineer... engineering school is top notch. some really BRILLIANT kids here... WVU gives you all the the tools you need to be a successful engineer, and we prove it every year with a almost 100% employment rate upon graduation. I know kids that got into MIT and came here do do petri engineering or other awesome disciplines that are not common. 1 of 9 mining engineering programs in the USA! I got into the best school in the country for my major, and I came here. I personally know alums working at spacex, nasa and Boeing currently, but there's ALOT more than that. Come here, try hard and I guarantee you will end up where you want to be. Every semester I learn so much! we are an engineer factory!!! Also med school is good here also. So if you are in med or engineering definitely check out WVUso glad I came here, can not wait to start my career
