West Virginia University Institute of Technology is a great school for students pursuing an engineering degree. The majority of students are engineering, but there are plenty of other degrees too. The engineering program is hard, bur rewarding. Besides school there isn't much to do on campus and the surrounding area has some activities to do. There are some athletic events and other events held by the school though!

My experience here has beem awesome. All professors I have had were very friendly, and taught the required material very well. The walks to each class are not very far, even if walking from one end of campus to the other. 10 minutes are given to go to the next class if a student has one immediately after, and this is sufficient time to get there. All buildings have WiFi, and this is very nice. The only thing I would like to see change is the drainage system in the parking lot next to Life Science Building, as when it rains, it's basically a river that covers your feet as you walk through it.
I really enjoy the small classes size that allow students to develop a relationship with the professors. I would like for the school to have more research opportunities and more options for time of classes, since many classes only have one schedule option and it is often conflicting with many other classes.
