Why Attend View Schedule Day of Details

Why attend?

Here are three reasons — but you'll discover so many more.


Customize Your Visit

At our fall open house, you’re in charge of the day. You’ll build your own schedule to experience what’s most important to you.

Learn about admissions and financial aid, explore residence halls, attend a sample college lecture, go on a walking tour, take your picture in front of Woodburn Hall – it’s up to you!

Check the schedule to see what else you can expect.


Meet Your Major

The most important part of your college experience is your major. Discover WVU is your chance to talk face-to-face with members of your academic area who can answer questions about the classes you’ll take, possible careers and internships, grad school options and more.

Not sure about your major? Discover WVU is also a great venue for exploring your options and seeking advice from academic experts.
