What impressed you positively?

"They are building new facilities (like a neuroscience center), everyone was very nice and tried to make the day minimally stressful. The new library is state-of-the-art. Also, living in Morgantown is ridiculously cheap compared to where I live right now (you can get a 1 bedroom apartment for $500 dollars according to our tour guide)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"You have to spend your third year at one the campuses and you don't always get your first choice, so you could end up in hicksville. The first year lecture hall is kind of crappy and there aren't big tables so you can't take notes on your laptop. Lectures are on powerpoint and you have to take notes by hand. But they seem to be builing new lecture halls, so maybe those will be an improvement. " Report Response
