New Mountaineers (Freshmen)

President Gee believes in big ideas, big service, big opportunities and big celebrations. Welcome Week is no exception. We’ve created and tailored a list of events fit for any and every Mountaineer.

First things, first. Get to campus.

What’s next? Every student has a personalized schedule of events tailored to their major. Everything you need to know should be available on this website. If not, we’ll tell you where to look to learn more.

Identify your major and college.

If you are a "pre" major, please plan to attend the academic session scheduled by the college/school that houses your major. For example, Pre-Dental Hygiene should attend the academic session sponsored by the School of Dentistry. If you aren't sure of which major you are in, you can find that information in DegreeWorks, which you can access through the WVU Portal.

Attend your academic session on Monday, August 14. 

Information on times and places to report can be found on your college, school or program web page after August 1. You can identify your major using DegreeWorks, which you can access through the WVU Portal.

Taking care of business – last-minute shopping and tour opportunities.

Forgot to pack a toothbrush, or just looking for that perfect addition to your dorm room décor? Take advantage of bus trips to the University Town Center. Learn times for the trip and other news from your Resident Advisor (RA) or Commuter Advisor (CA).

Want to familiarize yourself with campus a little more? Take an RA or CA tour. Learn more about times and tours from your RA or CA.

Learning meets leisure.
