What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • I live here, it is gorgeous in the middle of fall, with all the trees golden in color....
  • I really enjoy the website. I moved away from Morgantown 6 years ago and it is nice to see what is going on.
  • I miss Morgantown a lot. I lived there for two years and I loved every day of my stay. Hope to come back soon.
  • 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 love WV.
  • I was born (1960) and lived in Morgantown on Huffman Road until I was 9, when I moved to Ohio. I`ve always missed Morgantown and looking at your site brought back many happy childhood memories - Austin`s Grocery, the Theater downtown, Chico`s Ice Cream Parlor, sledding at the University (my dad worked/taught there)... I also miss the mountains and beautiful scenery- Ohio is sooo flat!!
