Save the Date! Graduates Emeritus Reunion

Join us in Morgantown for our WVU Graduate Emeritus Reunion June 2-4 2017.

If you graduated in 1967 or prior to, you won’t want to miss out on our 2016 Graduate Emeritus Reunion. We are working on another great weekend filled with fun, time to reminisce and reconnect to your alma mater. During the weekend we will honor the Class of 1967, as well as other 50+ year graduates. So, mark your calendars, make your hotel reservations and plan to join us. 

We hope to see you in Morgantown for these two fun-filled days, and ask that you encourage other classmates to join you! If you have any questions, please call us at 304-293-0991.

Best regards,

Emeritus Weekend Planning Committee


About our Reunion

For more than 50 years, the WVU Alumni Association has been honoring our emeritus graduates and their accomplishments through induction into a special society of alumni. As John Henry Cardinal Newman said, “A University is, according to the usual designation, an Alma Mater, knowing her children one by one, not a foundry, or a mint, or a treadmill.” Your Alma Mater is reaching out to know you better – its most senior children, its Emeritus Graduates.

There are over 13,000 living members who have joined us as Graduates Emeritus. We want you to be a part of this memorable campus event. When you are officially welcomed as an emeritus graduate, you will gain significant influence as a member of this society. WVU welcomes your involvement. We certainly encourage you to mark your calendars and share this information with other friends/classmates who may also want to attend.
