WVU Q&A: Helpful Apps and Advice | Campus Tour 2019
Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
I'm going to be answering some questions that I had commented on some my old video of, like some of the questions that people asked. I thought they would be helpful to anyone that is looking at going to W V U next year or in the future. Okay, so the first question waas What made you choose w view toward a lot of campuses and also considering going to Penn State. West Virginia has really has a really pretty campus like West Virginia is known for, like the mountains, obviously the Mountaineers. There's the downtown campus, which is where most of my classes are. Also I'm in the journalism media program and they have a really good media program. If you're going in as undecided, you probably have a higher chance of getting in. Then someone that's going into, like engineering or something like it really just depends. It's going to depend on what you're what college within the university that you're applying to part of the Reed College of Media. Someone else asked if there's any absolutely you can use on campus and I have a few on my phone. You if you take the purity every day, So I started to just to take the bus. So if you're on Evans, Dale and you've class downtown just going your app and see if the purity is down or not whether whether or not take the bus. Like if you're a freshman, definitely because it has a campus map. It has Evansville and downtown with everything like every dining hall, um, like residential hall building on labels. I don't really look at this tab, but it also has the W view news tab, and then I don't use this app for the bus but it has like the bus line information. I use the blue and gold and the teachers bus Lauren's to get to Evan Zale and downtown. So the other app that I use is M L t A. And it's the bus line at for our university. If you miss one bus like another bus will be there soon. Like I said, I used Beatrice or blue and gold, and they both go downtown to my classes and also up to Evansville. Basically, I use this one instead of the W View mobile because you contract the bus like in real time where it is. Like if it's cold outside, I'm not gonna walk to the bus stop now. If the buses all the way downtown, I'll walk to it when it's like closer to me so it's just helpful, definitely in the winter. Someone asked if the purity is free and, yes, if you're a W B U student, then you get like a student, I d card and you can swipe that for the P R T. And it's free and for the bus that goes for that to just sweep your I D. And it's free. If you don't have your i d and you don't go to W view than the purity and the buses 50 cents, I think someone else asked if there's a way to find roommates, there's a few ways if you go if you have Facebook, which I know like no one has Facebook anymore. Definitely I'd recommend to get a Facebook if you're looking for a roommate, because I'm part of the W view class of 2021 like Facebook Group, and it's really helpful. I definitely have recommend that for freshman because coming in like we would post like Hi, I'm looks I'm going in as a journalism major like this is what I like to do for fun. Once you apply through your housing application, there's a section for room like roommate finding. The rent is I think it's about 6 89 which you could definitely get cheaper apartments and they'll leave you. It's like there's some that are out there. If you're looking for cheaper options, there's definitely some people also rent houses. If you were looking for apartments like there's definitely cheap replaces. Um, if you're looking for cheaper right? But if you're looking for a nicer places and you don't really mind the price, you club is definitely nice. I definitely recommend you tour it because they give you free candy and free soda pop and the tour. I not join my dad like sign me up for it and everything, but that's like, basically get three meals a day, which I was like, Oh, Dad, look, I'm obviously gonna have three meals a day like breakfast, lunch and dinner, but I really don't do that. There's the option to use Mountie bounty for some places and dining dollars, and I use that for some might meals for breakfast. You were male player, and depending on what you think you're going to eat like I was like, Oh, yeah, I'm gonna be eating in the dining hall every day like I'll be using my meal plan all the time. So if you're gonna be like me that I definitely recommend getting like a lower meal plan so that you're not like wasting it. If you guys want, like a dorm tour on Oakland, I can definitely show you it because as a freshman, I was wondering what the dorms looked like. It's definitely different than, like some it whole or like data Zeman, because those are definitely more run down and say they're a little bit older, But it's downtown, so it's a prime location, like if you're looking to live downtown, those air definitely great dorms to be in because they're downtown. If you're like okay with taking the bus sometimes like being more laid back over on Evans Dale, then Oakland's definitely the place for you.
