West Virginia University is a research institute founded in 1867 and currently holds a student body of around 22,000. This is one of the safest campuses in America. The student body here comes from a wide variety of backgrounds; however, a good majority of the students come from the swamps of New Jersey.
West Virginia is known for its exceptional sports program, which leads to a lot of parties and great sporting events. In particular, their tailgates may leave the the average college student in the dust -- as these kids can drink. Students are known to go so hard for tailgates that they don't even make it to the actual game.
Not only do students have good sports teams to enjoy, but they also have great festivals. The marque festival in WVU is the FallFest event that allows students to enjoy musical performances and just get wasted.
