Returning Mountaineers (Upperclassmen)

Who says freshmen get to have all the fun?  Welcome Week is for our upperclass Mountaineers, too.  (Sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate and professional students – we’re talking to you.)

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.

It’s Welcome Week. Come out and show our new Mountaineers how we learn, serve and play – one adventure at a time.

Ready. Set. Let’s Go!


We’re happy these country roads have brought you home to Morgantown. We look forward to seeing you at the following events on campus.

Think carnival fun – WVU-style! Plus snacks and a student organization fair.

Trivia at the Erickson Alumni Center – Monday, August 14 (TBA)
