As the President and CEO of the WVU Alumni Association, and as the father of two Mountaineers, there are moments every day that remind me how lucky I am to hold these special titles. In fact, my favorite moments are the ones when I get to represent both WVU and my family, and in a few weeks, I will get to do just that as I help spread the word about WVU in a place I’ve called home.
West Virginia University is bringing the Mountaineer spirit to the Cincinnati/Dayton region on March 2nd for an Ask Us Anything event, open to prospective students and families who might be considering WVU as their next adventure. These events, designed to help share the real story about WVU, are the perfect environment to talk one-on-one with WVU staff, current students, alumni, and parents of Mountaineers.
I can’t wait to check-in, put on my name-tag, and get ready to share my perspective about being a parent of two Mountaineers (and an alumnus myself). Just like most families, we toured schools, we applied for scholarships, we explored academic programs, we talked about fit, and we mapped the drive from home to campus; ultimately, country roads led my family back to WVU and I am so excited to share that story on March 2nd.
When we recruit students to come to WVU, we’re recruiting the whole family – we can’t wait to share the Mountaineer spirit, wear the gold and blue, and welcome everyone into the WVU community.
