What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • My family is from Morgantown, my family moved away when I was 13 yrs old. Was always telling my husband and children about the fireflyies, couple of years ago we returned for a family reunion and my family was able to see what i grew up with. My husband loves Morgantown, and I agree with him. It is the most beautiful city and has changed alot in all the years I was gone. We lived in Jerome Park area. Could not believe when I came back how I remember the area so well. Did not get lost like i thought.
  • I moved from Morgantown in June, I currently reside in Pittsburgh to go to school, and I can't wait to come home!!
  • Hello from Germany ! We have hosted a Morgantown student (E. Case) for nearly a year. She told us a lot of your nice town. I will try to visit soon.
  • Interesting site.. I`m glad to have come across it in my travels. I will be back soon!
  • Proud parent of a WVU student. We enjoy the city when we visit. So sad to see the West Virginia Rifle Team cut along with the other sports. West Virginia without the WVU Rifle Team is like Mayberry without Barney!! Please reinstate the WVU Rifle Team!!
