Well it finally quit snowing....so off for my first post-surgery ride!
ahhh.... my alma mater
.... came to Morgantown
back in the winter of 85, during the heyday of the Chevy Celebrity
and the year the drinking age bumped up to 21. That was back when they didn't close school for the teeniest snow flurry. The old stadium was still about and I certainly fell more than once on the slippery, icy steps around stadium loop!
Here's a bit of trivia
, freshman enrolment this year actually had more out-of-state students than WV resident students! Aside from Mylan Pharmaceuticals and the hospital system, WVU is the
industry of Morgantown.
See that austere building in the background? spent many a late, late night up in the 9th floor labs blowing stuff up.
couple of pics from the downtown campus (this is where the pretty girls were, the same ones notably absent from the engineering college)
Oglebay Hall ... took my one and only Psych class
Woodburn Circle ... where I wussed out on foreign languages and took Philosophy instead and now regret it as I might have to learn a little Spanish for work!
is located along US19 (Mon Blvd)
immediately south of the intersection with Patterson Drive.
