We Go First
We’re the R1 research university where Going First is natural. Where helping prove Einstein’s theory of relativity or competing (and winning!) in NASA’s Mars Ice Challenge are only some of our bragging points. Where tackling new challenges and discoveries is just a regular Monday morning.

My favorite thing about WVU is the people! I chose WVU because as soon as I stepped foot on campus, I knew I found a family that would extend beyond the next four years. Everyone is extremely encouraging, and this environment has allowed me to grow tremendously!
