Review West Virginia State University
I love that West Virginia is unlike most colleges. The campus is a town which gives you so many more fun activities to do with friends (like dancing, dinner and football games). You can tell everyone truly loves the school and that makes it an enjoyable environment. I love WVU!
WVSU is definitely diverse. The current struggle on campus is finding a happy medium between black and white students and culture, and bridging the divide between on-campus residents and commuters. Some of the events are a little too much, and when we do have one, it just seems to be at inopportune times. Also, it's nothing like a modern, progressive college campus, and the "progressive energy" our Vice President of Student Affairs speaks of is virtually non-existent except in the board rooms where the boosters convene. Yes, I am slightly bitter; but I love this campus. I love the history and the diversity, and the different type of college experience discovered here. I might even say that coming here was a blessing in disguise, although every blessing has its burden, too.
West Virginia University is a diverse, academically-distinguished, and superb school with an involved and friendly staff. By offering unique majors and minors, hosting free lectures and events, and organizing various clubs and organizations, any student can completely immerse themselves into a positive and exciting college experience.
