Why we need your support
As a graduate and loyal friend of WVU, you never really leave the University behind; you are part of the University forever.
The WVU Alumni Association is your link to WVU.
We maintain WVU’s connection to more than 200,000 alumni worldwide and offer a home away from home for our alumni and friends at The Erickson Alumni Center.
As our alumni pool grows, even more will be expected from the Association — more ideas, more programs and more connections. We can and will exceed that expectation, but only with your generosity and commitment.
How you can help
Money raised through our greatest needs will support:
- WVU Connect
This fall the Alumni Association launched an official mentoring program which connects alumni to alumni and alumni to students. The program, which has global reach, contains a job board, a search feature to find classmates and specialty groups (such as chapters, Schools and Colleges, and the Varsity Club) to facilitate connection based upon interest.
Every year the Alumni Association employs 5-6 interns who work side-by-side with our staff and receive hands-on experience in their respective fields of study. Current interns are studying finance, hospitality, strategic communications and graphic design.
