In the age of social distancing and mask wearing, it can be difficult to remember that you’re not alone in the global struggle against COVID-19. As I said way back in April, connection is the new currency, which is why the Alumni Association is doing all that it can to bring Mountaineers together in a safe and uplifting way.
Whether you’re looking for an opportunity to work on professional development, learn new skills, or you’re simply trying to stay ‘in the know’, the Alumni Association has something for you. Consider checking out our recently launched Alumni Association Webinar Series where you can hear from key WVU staff and partners from varying disciplines this month.
Are you interested in supporting the business endeavors of your fellow Mountaineer alumni? Take a look at the business directory on the free WVU Connect platform! Not only can you provide real financial support to fellow alumni in these trying times, but you can also use the platform to look for jobs, stay connected with alum in your industry, or even start a discussion in the main discussion group.
The WVU Alumni App is a free-to-download all-purpose app that puts many of these features in the palm of your hand, so whether or not you’re at a computer, you can continue to stay connected to Mountaineer Nation. Get news alerts, athletics updates, learn about local discounts, and stay connected with your local chapter all through the app.
We know things are hard right now. Mountaineers, like everyone else, are struggling both on-campus and off. The good news is that we’re here for you and we can get through these times together, even stronger than we were before.
