  • Lived in Morgantown for about three years. Received my Master's Degree from WVU in 1996. WVU gave me a good education that I am very proud of. I work for Department of the Army, Operational Test Command at Ft Hood, TX. Though I was born and raised in Seattle, if I had a choice, I would return and settle in Morgantown. Morgantown is a beautiful city. I love the weather, people, and the beautiful scenery there. Probably will move back there when I retire. Better stop here. I think I'm about to cry!
  • I am originally from New Jersey, and my wife is from Kentucky, but we have lived in the Morgantown area for over 15 years, first as WVU students, then as working singles, and now as a very happily married couple. We love living here, being active members of Chestnut Ridge Community Church and true Mountaineer fans! We think Morgantown has a lot going for it.
  • I loved living in Morgantown for all of the five years I attended WVU. I graduated in 2001 and still visit Mo-town every couple months to stay with friends.
