Adventure WV

Adventure WV is WVU's outdoor and experiential education program and is the leading program of its kind in the nation. We help students connect with one other, the university and the state. Beginners are always welcome. We operate a large First-Year Trips program for incoming students, along with guided trips, workshops, equipment rentals, challenge course and zip lining, climbing wall, group development programs, custom programs and expedition-style trips.

In recent years we’ve worked with about 1,000 new students on 5 and 6-day First-Year Trips around the great state of West Virginia. In 2020 we ran a successful summer of virtual programs, in 2021, despite ongoing challenges, we ran over 40 in-person trips at reduced capacity. In 2022 we are seeking to return to a full capacity summer!

Deadlines/Important Dates: Registration for Summer 2022 First-Year Trips open is open and will fill quickly. Our programs are mostly run by student staff. Applications for training open early in the fall. Be sure to monitor our website for the most up to date information.

Air Force ROTC

Air Force ROTC builds future leaders for a commission in the United States Air Force or United States Space Force as well as better citizens for America. AFROTC is a four-year program that challenges students physically and mentally with leadership opportunities and prepares them to be successful in the Service and society. Courses focus on the importance of effective leadership and application of leadership concepts with critical thinking skills, communication and conflict resolution.

It includes a Leadership Laboratory (2 hours), an academic class (1 hour) and two physical training sessions (1 hour) each week. You can earn a minor in leadership with just a few other WVU courses. You must register for both USAF 100 and USAF 131 or 132 to be enrolled as a cadet. There is no Service commitment unless you are on a Air Force scholarship or you reach your junior year.

After successful completion of their degree plan and AFROTC, cadets are commissioned as Second Lieutenants and are provided with a rewarding future to serve and protect our country. The USAF and USSF conduct operations across the world requiring many different specialties; chances are there’s an exciting career field that’s right for you! Email if you have questions, have prior military experience, completed JROTC or are joining AFROTC in the fall semester.

Army ROTC is the nation's premier on-campus leadership development and training program. Army ROTC Cadets receive leadership, tactical and physical fitness instruction and upon graduation go on to serve as commissioned Army officers on active duty, in the National Guard or in the Army Reserve. All majors are eligible.

There is no obligation to serve in the military just for taking the first two years of Army ROTC classes. Students can fully participate in Military Science classes, leadership labs and physical training sessions, but must make a commitment to contract before their junior year to continue in the program. Students who commit and contract with ROTC, may be eligible for full tuition scholarships, room and board assistance, tuition assistance programs and a monthly living stipend. ROTC grads also receive a minor in Military Science.

Cadets who commission as Army officers are trained to be leaders for life, whether they are serving in our nation's military or in corporate America!

Deadlines/Important Dates: All freshman students need to do is enroll in a section of Military Science (MILS) 101 to get started. We recommend you contact John Dowling at to complete enrollment paperwork and to learn more about the requirements and potential benefits of participating in Army ROTC.

Project 168

Project 168 is WVU’s innovative program that adds purpose to WVU students’ outside-the-classroom experiences and gives them credit for their extracurricular efforts. Because we know that learning doesn’t stop at the classroom, Project 168 recognizes how those classroom lessons learned make a difference when students serve, lead, compete and create.

There are 168 hours in a week, and we know you’ll make the most of them when you are a Mountaineer. The 10,080 minutes that make up your week include going to class (of course), sleeping and eating yet you’ll have time to learn more about yourself and the WVU community while you are working at a job, serving on a project team, volunteering for your favorite charitable or non-profit organization and more.

Project 168 will provide you with a way to track all those things and more. You’ll complete a minimum of 53 activities in 10 competency areas. When you’ve completed your time at WVU and the Project 168 requirements and you’re ready to tell a future employer or graduate school about all the things you’ve learned while a student, you’ll have a co-curricular transcript printed on official WVU transcript paper to share. Plus, you’ll be invited to join the 168 Society, open to all students who complete the Project 168 curriculum.

You’ll have support from the Project 168 team as well as a coach who is a member of our faculty and staff and trained to guide you through the process. Project 168 is open to all students and is free of charge.

Student Insurance Office

In order to ensure that our students have access to the quality healthcare they need, and as a measure to protect them from unexpected healthcare costs, all eligible domestic and international students at WVU and WVU Institute of Technology are required to carry health insurance coverage.

Our office offers support to students regarding the health insurance requirement and helps to facilitate the process of waiving (opting out of) student insurance for students already enrolled in qualifying health insurance plans. In addition, we assist eligible students with mid-year enrollment in the school sponsored health insurance plan if they lose their current coverage due to a qualifying life event.

We have negotiated an excellent health insurance plan that includes nationwide coverage through Aetna’s extensive national network of providers, as well as worldwide medical assistance. The plan was designed specifically with students’ needs in mind and provides high-level coverage with low out-of-pocket costs.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have about the insurance requirement or the student insurance plan, as well as providing assistance with completing the health insurance waiver for students who already have adequate coverage.

Deadlines/Important Dates: The fall 2022 student health insurance waiver is open now. The submission deadline is August 1.

WVUteach is WVU’s undergraduate teacher preparation program for students who are interested in teaching math or science at the middle or high school level. This program is a parallel pathway that dovetails with STEM degrees to help students get what they need to earn a teaching certificate while they complete their chosen STEM major, thereby providing an additional career option upon graduation while keeping their original options intact.

The WVUteach program has a “try it out” phase with no commitment, so even if you’re just curious about a being a teacher, this is a great way to take teaching for a test drive and see if being a teacher might be the right choice for you.

Deadlines/Important Dates: To maximize ease and clarity, interested students are encouraged to check out our WVUteach webpage or request a phone or video meeting with a WVUteach representative before meeting with a departmental adviser to complete the registration process.
