One of the most anticipated events of the year for students, FallFest welcomes WVU students back to campus with a night full of fun and entertainment. Traditionally, this event was held on the Mountainlair Green, although it has recently been on the Rec Center fields. All students are invited to a concert comprised of popular bands and musical artists. Popular acts from the past include Kanye West, Cage the Elephant, and Maroon 5. A recent addition to this event is FoodFest, which gives all student attendees one free meal from a variety of restaurants that cater the event. Held during the first week of class, FallFest allows students to reconnect with friends after summer recess and to celebrate the beginning of another school year.
