If there’s one thing that we enjoy executing as a unit, it’s holding events that leave lasting impressions on prospective students and their families, ultimately resulting in enrolling at WVU and becoming a Mountaineer.
Recruitment events are not only critical in executing our recruitment goals, but
they are perfect opportunities to get to know other UREM employees through volunteering.
Below you will find a list of some of our most popular student recruitment events
held throughout the year.
- Decide WVU Day – This is a special visit day held in the spring for admitted students only to help them “decide” WVU as the college choice for the following fall.
- Discover WVU Day – This is a special visit day held in the fall to help prospective students “discover” all aspects of WVU to assist them with college choice decisions.
- Fall Fest – Three musical acts perform a live concert.
- Food Fest – Food trucks of many varieties will be available and students are given a food ticket to try the food truck of their choice.
Movie Fest – Students get together to watch a movie in the Coliseum.
Monday Night Lights – Freshmen students go to the football stadium for activities and the annual state picture.\
WVU Day at the Legislature – The WVU Day at the Legislature features interactive displays, activities and exhibits for youth who can talk with current WVU students and other WVU representatives about higher education, as well as meet their state representatives and check out the legislative process.
