Major: Accounting (This Major's Salary over time)
First off, I'm an Accounting major, not an English major so don't bust me for grammatical/spelling errors or run on sentences…

This is a pretty great school for the low tuition. I never had any problems with the faculty or advisors like some of the comments I read. Although, I was directly admitted into the business college and placed in honors courses with an honors advisor. I found the professors and coursework in my major pretty challenging but all of the GECs were a joke.

The school spirit and sporting events were awesome! So much energy and all around great atmosphere. No complaints here.

The social/night life aspect of the school can be a bit of a double edge sword. It can be extremely fun and help you unwind after a stressful finals week but can get really annoying/distracting if you are trying to focus on schoolwork. It takes real discipline and self-control which most 18-20 year olds lack. If you are not into the party scene, I highly recommend living away from the downtown/sunnyside area. Better off just commuting from Evansdale area.

The campus and surrounding area is absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall. If you end up going here, make sure you take the time to visit Cooper's Rock and Blue Hole.

Towards the end of my years there, I was ready to leave though. I moved across the country to a large city almost immediately after graduation. I think the only reason I might have gone to a different school is just because I am more of a city person. Morgantown is a pretty small town so it doesn't take very long to explore and see everything. For WV though, it is the best school and the best city in my honest opinion.

Let's go Mountaineers!!! Keep those gold medals coming!
