New Undergraduates (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.

But first things first. Before you pack your bags, you'll need to take a minute to register for your Adventure and Service project.

Choose Your Adventure.

During Welcome Week, all first-year students will participate in a fun activity that will connect you to other students, to our beautiful state and to the communities surrounding WVU. Each "Adventure" is a Community Service, Adventure WV or Career Discovery experience — it's up to you which event you attend!

Find your Adventure day below — either Sunday, August 13 or Tuesday, August 15 — based on where you will live. Choose your event by clicking the link and then logging in to WVU's iServe system using your WVU ID (the same as for your MIX email).
