Having difficulty making the connection to WVU? We can help you make your transition a little easier. We provide fun activities where you can meet other students, academic progress counseling, referral information, information on campus events and activities, community service opportunities, and a place to relax between classes.

Need to work while attending WVU? The Office of Student Employment helps WVU students find part-time and seasonal employment in order to fund their college educations.
