ABOUT THE CHAPTER
On behalf of the WVU Alumni Association, we would like to invite you to join the Rocky Mountain Chapter, your connection back to the great Mountaineer Nation!
The Rocky Mountain Chapter is part of a network of regional organizations around the world that are affiliated with the Alumni Association.
The Rocky Mountain Chapter was formed in Denver in 1997 when WVU alumni Jen and Bill
Gray moved to Colorado from Pennsylvania. They quickly realized that something
was missing from their lives and decided to try and form an Alumni Chapter. Thanks
to the great support they received from the WVU Alumni Association a chapter was
born. The Grays quickly found out what they already knew. No matter how far away
from Morgantown, or how many years it has been, "Once a Mountaineer, always a Mountaineer"
Soon after smaller satellite chapters were formed in Colorado Springs and Fort
Collins to allow Alumni in those areas to gather closer to home, supported by the
Denver based main Chapter. In 2016 we are establishing a Western Slope satellite
locations for our friends over the hill. Thanks to the great support of our chapter
members and volunteers we have continued to grow and develop, and the Rocky Mountain
Chapter is here to stay.
Chapters promote the fellowship and welfare of WVU alumni, students, parents of students,
and friends of the university in their geographic region. WVU alumni chapter
members have the opportunity to participate in several social events throughout
the year, including televised game watches, recruitment of new WVU students, trips
to football games and other athletic activities, local events, charity benefits,
or community service opportunities.
