Student Life

Boredom—and burnout—is not an option.

Between classes, reading, studying, research, meetings, and more reading, it sometimes feels like there are not enough hours in the day. So it stands to reason that when you do have “free” time, it has to make a difference. WVU Law and Morgantown have that covered.

The College of Law serves up a variety of opportunities throughout the year that enhance classroom experiences—and some that are just plain fun.

A multitude of student organizations provide opportunities in the law. These are great ways to get involved, continue to develop your leadership skills, make friends, and network among your peers.

Engaging guest speakers, usually during the noon free hour, range from human rights lawyers and experts in patent law to lawyer-authors, federal attorneys and judges. There are films, luncheons, exhibits, and informal “nights out” hosted by student organizations that appeal to our wide range of students.

As members of a large university community, law students can take full advantage of WVU’s facilities and amenities, from the WVU Recreation Center to concerts, performances, and famed Mountaineer athletic events.

Morgantown is a dynamic and progressive city with lots of entertainment, shopping, and dining. There are also West Virginia’s legendary “wild and wonderful” outdoor experiences, like hiking, biking, and whitewater rafting. If you want to get out of town, Pittsburgh is just 75 miles away or a few hours’ drive will put you in Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, or Washington, DC.
