WVU is amazing, and I happen to be in the marching band. The Pride of West Virginia. It is the greatest experience in the world to be a part of this band. The football games are incredible, and the love the school and the state gives to us is unbeaten by any other school. They campus is very unique, but the university has made it work with the buses and of course the PRT. Most of my time spent on campusis spent in the Mountain Lair. The Mountain Lair is our student union that has a large TV a food court, bowling and billiards downstairs and other things to just pass time between classes. The love that each student has for this school is amazing. Each student feels the same way about this place, and that is that this place is one of the best on Earth and they wouldn't be anywhere else.
At any big school, you're going to have classes with up to 400 people in them. in this type of class, it's really completely up to the professor how much the class participates. For instance, i have a Political Science class with about 200 people in it, but the professor makes scenarios for his examples using students in class to make his points, then lets other students comment on the topic and make a point on a side of the argument. Math Classes are awful at any big school. it's just a big lecture hall with one professor doing examples over and over. They are by far my least favorite classes.
WVU as a whole is extremely accepting to everyone at least that's what i have seen. Again, like at any big school, you may have a few jerks that might throw a racist comment here or there, but that is to be expected in any community. And WVU is most definitely a very large community. Right now the 2008 election is coming up, and students have been campaigning for their candidate for months. To see college students in the action of politics is really excited and nice for once.
The Best Things
The atmosphere as a Whole. i just love being downtown going to class at the same time as thousands of others that are here for the same reason as i am.
