What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • I was born in Morgantown, and my Dad was a WVU professor for over 30 years. This site is great; it's so much fun to look at the photos and see what's going on in Motown. Keep up the great work!
  • I was in town visiting my father last week and continue to be impressed with the growth and direction that the city is taking. Since I left in 1979, I only get back one or two times a year for visits. Every time, there are new improvements to see. Keep up the great work.
  • I was there from 1994 to 1997. I missed the town and poeple. Very best wishes from Turkey
  • Love the town and have been a lifelong WVU fan. I just hope what I witnessed and experienced in Pittsburgh yesterday [Pitt vs. WVU Game on 11/25/00] is never reinacted in Morgantown. My daughter is a student and my only complaint is the limited amount of parking. I come down quite often and always enjoy my visits.
  • I can't wait to come back to the wonderful city of morgantown. I didn't grow up there, but it is where I plan on coming back to when this is over.
