You Know You're A Mountaineer If...

... you love WVU with your whole heart.

Posted on

15. These wild and wonderful (and massive and steep) hills have prepared you to tackle anything.

But seriously. Nothing can possibly compare to LSB stairs.

14. In the fall, Saturdays are for the Mountaineers.


SAFTM? Did we just start a new thing?

13. You've (accidentally) called Morgantown "home" in front of your mom at least once...


^ Your mom's reaction. Awkward.

12. Finding clothes that aren't gold or blue is hard.


But then again, there's never a bad time to wear our colors.

11. "Country Roads" is your jam.


Sing it, John Denver.

10. You have *at least* one Woodburn picture.

Bonus points if you have a picture from every season.

9. You've found a place in one of the 400+ student organizations on campus.


8. You love your major and take advantage of all of the opportunities at WVU.

"If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."

7. "The Pride of West Virginia" gives you chills.

And maybe a few tears of happiness too.

6. Participating in world-changing research before you even hit age 30? Check.

WVU is now an R1 university, one of only 115 universities. You could say we're kind of a big deal.

5. You fangirl when you see President Gee on campus.

Give him a hug, snap a selfie, and admire his bow tie of the day.

4. You can spot a Flying WV from a mile away.

It's one of the most recognizable university logos in the world.

3. Hearing the Mountaineer fire the rifle is music to your ears.



2. As you've grown to love WVU, you've also grown to love West Virginia and its incredible sights.

Name a more iconic state. We'll wait.

1. No matter how far you roam or where you may go, you're always thinking of those country roads.

After all... "Once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer."
