West Virginia University (WVU)
Founded in 1867, WVU has an array of sights to see, such as beautiful lecture halls, Mountaineer Field and the Student Recreational Center. One of the best places to check out is the Student Union building. The Mountainlair has a lot to offer to W VU students and visiting families, such as visiting bowling, billiard, arcades and a variety of restaurants in the food court.
Although a student housing complex is currently under construction, the neighborhood was once the place for house parties. Sunnyside’s legacy will remain to those who experienced the party atmosphere of those beer-soaked streets.
When traveling to Morgantown, you must go to an athletic event to witness true Mountaineer Pride! Make sure to see the WVU Mountaineers play at the Milan Puskar Stadium. If you’re going during winter, head to the coliseum and catch a basketball game. They are always full of crazy fun fans!
