The WVU Experience
Something that you should do is come and visit on a game day. You get to see how the community comes together. And seeing all the Flying WVs everywhere you go. You could be 10 miles away from the stadium. If it's game day, you're still going to hear the “Let's Go” cheer. Just that sense of family and belonging is just super important, and I think it's a key feature of WVU.
