Guide to West Virginia Colleges and Universities

This state, just inside the Mason-Dixon line, is known as the mountain state and has embraced this nickname. West Virginia's state university's athletic teams are called the Mountaineers, and have enjoyed much success in many sports. Outdoors activities are treasured here, with the most popular things to do being skiing, hunting, fishing, and whitewater rafting. Despite its rural roots, computer -related careers are expected to skyrocket in demand within the next ten years.

West Virginia's capital and most populated city is Charleston, but it still maintains its old country roots. Huntington and Parkersburg are the next populous cities, boasting the pride of the largely blue-collar residents there. Top employers in the state include the Rudy Day Surgery Center, and Charleston Area Medical Center. There are not a large number of colleges in West Virginia, but those that are available offer a worthy education.
