Morgantown has great opportunity available with major companies growing in the area but is still a small town (non-overwhelming) feel.
Morgantown is a great city. Everything is at your finger tips and five minutes away. Traffic is almost always awful and the roads are awful.
Morgantown has restaurants and stores with locally grown food. The lives music scene is one of the best I've ever seen. With so many different cultures packed into one spot, majority of what you want to learn can be made available to you.

Morgantown is a college town. When students are here the traffic downtown is insane. The potholes in Morgantown need serious work. Most of the houses downtown need improvements. The houses are affordable, but they are not the nicest. This town is more for people who are only here temporarily such as for college. There is a huge nightlife. The atmosphere is friendly. There are plenty police around, so that is comforting.

This statement is above and beyond true. The people of Morgantown and WV are amazing. It is truly a small town big city feel being in Morgantown. WVU has a major influence on the community--as it is a drinking town with a football problem. There is a great k-12 school system to send children to. The majority of residents are employed by the university. As for young millennials, the only thing to do is drink at a downtown bar. There's not much to offer working young professionals.
If you are under 21, there is nothing to do here. I have lived here for the past eight years and am bored out of my mind most days. The best thing to do here is go outside, and when the whether is bad, you're really out of luck. There are tons of bars to choose from, making it optimal for the college students of WVU. The infrastructure is terrible here, it's only a matter of time before this town collapses in on itself, but Let's Gooooooo Mountaineers!
Morgantown is a growing community especially due to the university that is downtown. It brings in a lot of jobs and revenue for the 10 months the students are in town but during the summer, the city is a dead, poor, and un-thriving place to be. Morgantown is an older city that's cost of living is very high and places to live are few and far between.
Morgantown is a great town to live in. There is a plethora of things to do, ranging from going out to eat and visiting a West Virginia University sporting event, to enjoying a play or taking a hike on the Rail-Trail. The schools in the area are also exceptional for growing families. The biggest downfall is trying to get around during a snow storm, as the roads can be treacherous.
Not much, just hard times. Too much work to go through. Hardly any opportunities for my major. Enjoy watching tv for entertainment and ways of learning. A lot of stress on my mother.
I love the energy in Morgantown in West Virginia. One thing I would improve is the roads, especially Van Voorhis Road. The college scene all throughout Morgantown gives the town a great spark and attracts many people from all over.
I like all the food options and all the sports events that take place at WVU. Lets Gooo Mountaineers!!!
The town could use some clean up, and the opium problem addressed. There is also a problem, albeit smaller than many areas with racism/bigotry that I have noticed.
I love how there's a little bit of city and a little bit of country here in Morgantown. When the traffic isn't bad you can get around town pretty quickly.
As a student living in Morgantown, I think the best thing about it is the nightlife! Morgantown basically caters to student nightlife. The bars are always a fun time. There are plenty of local restaurants here that are diverse.
I love that Morgantown has a little bit of everything. Great restaurants and a lots of entertainment from the local and community owed grocery stores to delicious restaurants that cater to everyones different diets. In addition to lots of greats great parks, shopping, and walking trails and music venues.
For all the the times I have been to Morgantown for a visit, I have always had a good time! However, many of the students who attended West Virginia University drop out fairly fast. The University is a phenomenal school. But the rates of going to parties, and not going to class the next morning are very high. That needs to change, for the students.
Morgantown is a wonderful college town. There are many unique restaurants in town in addition to the opportunities included with the college. There are several music venues in town that bring in a variety of acts, also several festivals and parades throughout the year.

It's a pretty nice town, but of course it could be better. Since WVU's campus is downtown there is a lot of litter, and we have a lot of bars, and a lot of drunk students walking around. There isn't much today for students under 18, so it's pretty boring, and I would not raise children here. There are a lot of shootings and robberies.
Morgantown has some of the most honest and helping people I have met. While school is session, traffic is very bad, therefore, I would like to see road expansion.
I work in Morgantown. The town itself is quaint and very diverse. It is a college town and there are a lot of things to do especially if you are into the outdoors. The traffic is terrible for such as small city and the roads are not well maintained. Although there have been attempts to make it better, there is a long way to go before it is decent. Cost of living is high for the quality of homes.
