West Virginia is nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains to the east and the Ohio River to the west. It is a destination for white water rafting, kayaking, skiing, climbing, golf, mountain biking, hiking, and off-roading. Its location between the mid-west and eastern seaboard of the United States means that over 60% of the United States population lives less than 500 miles from West Virginia.
At the intersection of I-79 and I-68, WVU is approximately 70 miles south of Pittsburgh or 200 miles northwest of Washington, DC.
