What people are saying about Morgantown…

  • I miss Morgantown Soooo Much. My heart hurts
  • Well, I must say as a native Morgantown-tionian I am delighted with our City's website. I stubbled here in my web search to find photos etc. to decorate my office door. Why you ask do I want to decorate my office door? Ah, to encourage the students in my current elementary school to 'keep on with education'. That's in quotes because I feel it's vital to 'keep on' speaks the cold miner's daughter who would encourage all children to seek to learn. Just wanted those of you who have made the effort involved in this web site to hear that it is appreciated. I shall be utilizing materials you have provided for our school's March door decoration. A means of telling our students about the faculity's secondary education. I could not tell about WVU without sharing about Morgantown. If I were not fortunate enough to have been born and raised in Morgantown it is most likely that I would not be able to call myself a Mountaineer Alumni. So thank you for all that you've shared on this hometown website.
  • Boy, do I miss Morgantown! I had the best time in my life there. Lived there from July of 06 till Feb. 07. Stayed as long as I could,got hit hit by a car on Pleasant st. in Jan.and couldnt work. So I came back to IN. I would like to thank C. Canfield for being in the right spot at the right time for,she seen the car that hit me and called police.I would also like to thank officer S.F. Bennett and the Morgantown police dept. for responding so fast. The person who hit me would have gotten away with hitting a pedestrian if not there fast response. But all in all I love your town and plan on returning as soon as possible. Thanks for such a great place to live.
  • I plan to visit Morgantown in June or July this year. Looking forward to seeing all the sites and any actively going on.
  • Glad to see this fine Web Site. Great Job ! I was born in Morgantown in 1938. My Aunts & Uncle went to school with Don Knotts & the Knott's home was just a few blocks from my Grandmother's house at 217 Green Street. My Dad graduated from WVU in 1938 & he & I visited some of the University Staff a few years ago. He lives in Greensboro,NC & must be one of the oldest living Alumni (Class of 1938).
  • Very nice web site.
