Students can meet 30 landlords who own properties in the Downtown, Evansdale and Health Sciences areas of Morgantown. The goal of the housing fair is to show students the different options they have when trying to find housing.

A student organization at West Virginia University, the group aims to be an invaluable campus resource by providing a resource to name exploitative property owners, recognizing outstanding landlords and offering services to students being treated unfairly.

In addition to fully furnished units and free WiFi, residents have amenities such as a Mac computer lab, outdoor kitchen, late-night shuttle service and a brand new 24-hour fitness center.

Deciding who to live with can be a stressful and daunting task for many. There are factors to consider when making this decision, including deciding whether or not to with live with a random person or a close friend and what to expect when living with either option.

SLS will take on everything involving housing, from lease reviews to reclaiming security deposits, in an attempt to keep Morgantown landlords accountable for how they treat their tenants.

Amenities include an on-site cafe, 24-hour fitness center, basketball and volleyball courts, 24-hour computer lounge, pool, hot tub, tanning beds, parking and free shuttle service both to and from campus.

Located in the University Town Centre, the Domain is just minutes away from the Evansdale campus and a short drive to downtown Morgantown. The apartment complex is also near Regal Cinemas Morgantown 12, Target, Walmart, Giant Eagle and a number of restaurants.

Successfully navigating freshman year can be a difficult and intimidating time for new students. Though escaping constant supervision from teachers and parents might have been every kid’s dream in high school, having almost complete freedom in college can seem a little overwhelming by comparison.

New student orientation gives incoming students the chance to explore Morgantown and get a feel for the place they plan on spending their next four years. With only one day and tons of information shared, the whole experience can be vastly overwhelming. 

Morgantown is full of hidden restaurant gems, and trying each of them has been one of my favorite parts of living in this city. Whether I’m ordering in late one night or having a dinner date with friends, these restaurants have gone above and beyond my expectations and delivered unforgettable flavors and experiences.

So you made it. You’ve gotten all your college acceptance letters, you’ve balanced the pros and cons of each option and now you’re here. Congratulations, you’re now part of an international family of Mountaineers who will be there to help and support you, wherever you end up in life.

Stepping on campus can be pretty intimidating, especially when you don’t know where you are going or how you are getting there. Whether your classes are on the Downtown Campus, Evansdale or one of WVU’s other campus areas, chances are you will rely on public transportation at some point in your college career.

During orientation, students are able to get a jumpstart on the application process by visiting the Student Employment Office. Located in the second floor of the Mountainlair, this department works with students to find both on and off campus employment. Career Services advertises positions in a wide range of part-time fields, with flexible hours to fit students’ busy class schedules.

Most Mountaineers will tell you that although dorm life can be challenging, it also will be one of your most memorable experiences at WVU. Preparing for move in is overwhelming, intimidating and sometimes a downright hassle. While your packing list for college is probably growing by the day, there are a few essential items students shouldn’t live without their freshman year.

Attendance to any West Virginia game is free for students. With your student ID card you can get into men and women’s soccer, volleyball, baseball, women’s basketball, tennis and hockey games as well as gymnastics and wrestling meets. For football and basketball games, students have to request tickets ahead of time and claim them in order to get into a game. Keeping up with the ticket availability at www.ticketreturn.com/wvu is the best way to know when tickets are open; no one wants to miss a game because they could not get a ticket.

The Daily Athenaeum is West Virginia University’s student-run newspaper. Commonly referred to as The DA, this publication is one of the largest newspapers in the state of West Virginia. It has previously been ranked among the nation’s top college newspapers, as well.

Scheduling at WVU may seem intimidating at first, but when you come equipped with the facts and an understanding of the process, it becomes much easier. The first step of the process is to relax.
