One of my favorite weekends in Morgantown has come to a close! What a weekend it was - thousands of alumni came back to Morgantown and celebrated everything we love about WVU. There was no shortage of things to do - from seeing all of the changes happening around campus, to the Homecoming Parade and football game against Texas Tech, it was a weekend filled with excitement. Our alumni are what make this University so special and it was great to see so many of you in Morgantown wearing your gold and blue.
If you attended the game on Saturday, then you got to see the WVU Alumni Association honor eight fantastic alumni who won the 2021 Homecoming and Alumni Service Awards. Each of the awards is unique, and all recipients embody what it means to be a Mountaineer. I encourage you to read about each winner and their connection to WVU here. I was fortunate enough to spend time with our recipients over the weekend and of course, I had to ask them about their favorite memories during their time at WVU. Their responses were all different but shared one common thread: there's no place on earth like WVU.
