West Virginia University… Go Mountaineers!

West Virginia University

In case you have never set foot in the beautiful mountain town of Morgantown, WV, home to West Virginia University, let EHS share our experience and some fun facts about the school with you.

Morgantown has been ranked as the “#1 Small City in America,” the “Best Small City in the East,” and the “3rd-Best Small Town” in the nation.

For moving between campuses, Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is operated by WVU and is the only public Personal Rapid Transit system in the world! This unique, easy-to-use transportation solution offers five stations around town. PRT costs are included in undergraduate tuition and fees; students simply swipe their Mountaineer Card IDs at the PRT station for admittance.

WVU’s 4-H club was named best in the nation for 2011.

Twenty-five WVU students have received Rhodes Scholarships for study at Oxford; few public universities have produced more Rhodes Scholars than WVU.

The Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute—the world’s first institute devoted to the study of human memory—is at WVU.

As you can tell, there is a lot happening on campus and we loved being able to stop by and learn about it. We hope to be back soon!
