"The Multidisciplinary Studies Program at WVU is a great opportunity to really diversify your bachelors degree into something unique. You have the ability to choose your interests and if you choose the online program you have freedom to complete your tasks at your most convenient times for you. All of the professors are excellent and provide you with the upmost relatable information to your chosen concentrations. This is definitely a great choice for a bachelors degree if you are still undecided in your major."

"WVU is a very fun school. The biggest challenge with it, is staying focused on your coursework. If you show up to class, and turn in effortful assignments on time, you should have no problem getting A's. WVU has some faculty that deeply care about their student's and their education. It is certainly a select few. If you go to WVU, try to connect with these faculty and get connected with opportunities on campus."

"WVU was an amazing experience. Set in the mountains, there are plenty of outdoor activities. The campus is vast, safe with several locations in Morgantown that are all connected via our Personal Rapid Transit (like a subway train) system. Academia are great. We have great sports, the atmosphere is electric."

"Make sure to do your research on what major you would like to choose-- this includes: what major is best for the career you want one day, what major will you enjoy and what major will give you the most options for the future. If you are unsure of what major you would like to choose, take general classes your first semester or year, so you can get a better idea of what you enjoy and what would best prepare you for your career."

"Not worth my time in the *insert language* department. I knew more entering than leaving, but I am very much an exception in that. Loved and adored the linguistics classes and professors. Drs. Seynnaeve and Stepanovic are of a quality I could only have dreamed of. Language itself just blossomed in my head because of them. If you aren't a party person, stick to the Evansdale campus and live with having to take the bus or PRT between campuses. It is much calmer on Evansdale. They have a growing LGBTQ group and support. You get a limited number of free visits to the Carruth Center if you ever need a counselor/therapist. The director of the Carruth Center is wonderful. You can absolutely learn to thrive in a "party" school if you aren't into parties. RA's are well trained and really do want to help you. Cafeteria food isn't great but there are several options around the campuses so you can figure out which place(s) have food you prefer. I really do think there is a place for literally everyone at WVU, if for no other reason than I found my place and did well and learned who I was there. I originally didn't want to go to WVU but it was really my only option. It turned out very well. Don't discount it because of its party school reputation. Everyone has a place there."

"WVU will be one of the places that I remember fondly for the rest of my life. I have and will continue to visit Morgantown forever. It is not only an incredible university with incredible faculty and staff, but it is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. You will never regret becoming a Mountaineer. Montani Semper Liberi!"

"I learned more trying to get through college and paying for college than I did in most of my classes (I worked through and paid for my own way) however, I learned a lot about my passions in life via some of my electives."
