What our overachievers are saying

Morgan working on a computer

Morgan Szafranski

Charlestown, West Virginia

Quadruple major: computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering and Chinese.

Had I gone to any of the other schools, I wouldn’t have multiple majors and would have over $100,000 of debt. I’m glad that I came to WVU; I’m getting quite an education without placing a tremendous weight on my shoulders financially.”

Kelly Martin

Kelly Martin

Springfield, Virginia

Double major: computer engineering, biometrics systems with minors in Spanish and computer science while also participating in the WVU marching band.

I want to build up my experience and learn more about these fields (biometrics and computer engineering) in hopes of eventually working in an environment where I can help with solving crimes.”
