In a recent conversation, a friend who is not a WVU alum was telling me how he likes to hire WVU graduates. He told me that compared to graduates of other institutions, his experience is that WVU graduates are more humble, technically competent with the added benefit of common sense and application focused, exhibit stronger work ethic, and lack entitlement. I was grinning ear to ear!
I’m sure you recognize these traits in the Mountaineers you know, and we see them year after year in the Alumni we recognize for their service contributions and professional achievements. This year’s class of Homecoming Awardees represents the best in what it means to be a Mountaineer!
