According to the school, West Virginia University is a place where dreams come true. A tradition of academic excellence attracts exceptional high school seniors. WVU has produced 25 Rhodes Scholars, 33 Goldwater Scholars, 22 Truman Scholars, and six members of USA Today’s All-USA College Academic First Team. Whether your goal is to be an aerospace engineer, reporter, physicist, athletic trainer, forensic investigator, pharmacist, or CEO, WVU’s 190 degree choices can make it happen. Unique student-centered initiatives extend learning beyond the classroom. Resident Faculty Leaders live next to the residence halls to mentor students, and WVUp All Night provides free food and activities on weekends. The Mountaineer Parents Club connects 20,000 WVU families, and a toll-free helpline leads to a parent advocate. The Student Recreation Center includes athletic courts, pools, weight/fitness equipment, and a 50-foot indoor climbing wall. Students come from every West Virginia county, 50 states and Washington, DC, and 100 countries because WVU encourages and nurtures diversity. As a major research institution, WVU attracts over $152 million in annual grant funding. The campus is one of the safest in the nation, and the area’s natural beauty provides chances to ski, bike, rock climb, hike, and go white-water rafting.\r\n\r\n
