The WVU Alumni Association has served graduates and friends of West Virginia University since 1873. We create connection and community for people who love West Virginia University.

Who We Are

The West Virginia University Alumni Association is both the sage and scribe of alumni moments, and a facilitator of connections that span the globe among our community of Mountaineers.

Our Alumni Association members are the heartbeat of our organization, supporting programs and activities such as Homecoming, the WVU Academy of Distinguished Alumni, and numerous social and philanthropic initiatives that embody the spirit of WVU. As stewards of our collective memories, we celebrate milestones and achievements that shape our Mountaineer journey.

Moreover, our network extends far beyond campus borders, with over 70 chapters and interest groups fostering camaraderie, supporting student scholarships, engaging in community service, advocating for the University, and offering invaluable career networking and mentorship opportunities.

The Erickson Alumni Center, inaugurated in October 2008, stands as a testament to our enduring connection. This 48,000 sq. ft. haven serves as a home away from home, inviting alumni and friends to relive cherished moments, peruse our alumni library, and bask in the beauty of campus, embodying the enduring bond of our Mountaineer family.
