  • We have an opportunity to choose from one of 68 towns for a golfing vacation and we wanted to check out Morgantown to see if its a place we wanted to spend time.
  • I have just arrived from Morgantown, where I have friends study at the WVU. I felt in love with the city! It is such a gorgeous and lovely place.
  • 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.
