We’re in full-swing summer mode at the Alumni Association. Our chapters across the country are holding family picnics, pig roasts, crab feasts, beach parties, shrimp boils, pepperoni roll bake-offs, and many other activities. Some chapters are going to baseball games and others are heading to the amusement park. You can discover what’s happening in your neck of the woods by visiting the events page on our website or downloading the WVU Alumni app for your smart phone.
At WVU, June means New Student Orientation. Every day this month, our students and their families join us for a full day of preparation before their first year at West Virginia University. You’d be impressed with the great day of learning and experience our team puts together for these brand-new Mountaineers. Check out what the students and families are up to at orientation by visiting WVU’s NSO website.
Weddings, weddings, and more weddings! We’re jammed packed at The Erickson Alumni Center this month with Mountaineers from all over holding their weddings at their Alma Mater. The Erickson is a beautiful spot for your special day, and we’d be happy to help you plan it. Check out some of our wedding photos on The Knot.
Best wishes to each of you for a wonderful summer. I hope you have a chance to break away, relax and spend time with family, friends and fellow Mountaineers! If you see a motorcycle navigating the back roads of West Virginia with a fly rod strapped to the back, it might be me!
