You would have to fight traffic over the Westover bridge as well as the full length of Beechurst. I wouldn't think it would be worth it unless you found a truly great deal. That part of town isn't overly student friendly either.
I didn't even think about the attitude towards students. It's also hard for me to drop my suburban/city mentality when it comes to distance and traffic. I couldn't imagine how bad the narrow 2 lane roads get when there are thousands of cars out.
On a side note how does Morgantown deal with snow? Are the roads cleared enough to get through even if at a slow pace? I can only imagine it being difficult getting up Law School Dr after a few inches fall.
Snow is not fun in Morgantown. It doesn't get terrible snow too often, therefore they are never totally prepared when it does come. Also, as for the traffic situation, another problem to consider is that there is ALWAYS some type of road work going on downtown, and if you have to travel from Westover, you'd have to deal with that everyday. In all seriousness, I would try to get as close to the school as possible in attempt to avoid the various road problems.
Good luck, Dayman.
