Favorite Thing About WVU and Statler College

My favorite thing about WVU and the Statler College is the number of opportunities that every student has on campus. There’s a niche for everyone as long as you look for it!

Advice for Prospective Students

You have to get involved in something! Even if it’s just taking a (free!) class at the Rec Center every week, being involved with a program on campus is the only way you’ll really feel like WVU is your home.
