Q: What's better than a pretty fall picture?
A: A pretty fall picture on the campus of WVU.
It's that time of year when the leaves change colors. The air is crisper. And you're ready to unleash the scarves and jackets from your closet.
In celebration of autumn, we present to you these scenic fall shots of campus.
To our alumni around the world, look at these photos and try not to miss us too much. You don't get this in Arizona, man.

One of the most iconic backgrounds on campus just got a little more iconic with this Instagram submission from @missbiss1029. She snapped this image below Woodburn Hall in 2014.

Tranquil to the Core
What? You were expecting another downtown campus shot? Or something with a building?
One of the University's overlooked gems, the Core Arboretum, is 91 acres of walking trails and lush forests. Better yet, the Arboretum is free and easily accessible near the Coliseum. (WVU Photo)
Peeking at Purintan
Another historic building on the downtown campus is the colonial-style Purintan House. In 1911, President William Taft delivered the address "World Wide Speech" from the front porch. Hopefully he had some fabulous fall foliage like this to gaze at. (WVU Photo)
How You Know it's Really Fall
It's not fall without WVU football. University photographer Brian Persinger captured this "Stripe the Stadium" shot at Milan Puskar Stadium on a 2015 October evening before the Mountaineers hosted Oklahoma State. Don't ask who won the game.
