Tech Madness will return to campus on Monday, October 22 at 7:00 p.m. in the Van Meter Gym.
As students take on more responsibility for the health and happiness of their communities, they are increasingly turning to student organizations. One such group – the newly established chapter of Athlete Ally – will focus on fostering an environment where everyone feels welcome.
Scott Robertson, Assistant Dean of Students for TRIO and Diversity Programs, said he hopes to host the first official meeting of the chapter in November.
A group of WVU Tech students landed a first-place win at the West Virginia Society for Human Resource Management’s statewide SHRM Case Competition this week.
The students – all members of the SHRM student chapter at WVU Tech – competed at the WVSHRM State Council Annual Conference in Bridgeport, West Virginia on Monday and Tuesday.

WVU Tech’s annual Homecoming parade was hosted for the second year Saturday on the Beckley campus, and according to surround residents, it’s where it belongs.
“Let’s Go, Golden Bears!,” the WVU Tech cheerleaders shouted as they led the way for the parade down South Kanawha Street, walking proudly with the Golden Bear mascot, Monty.
During the 2018 State of Tech address, WVU Tech's Interim Campus President Dr. Gerald Lang said first-year enrollment numbers have nearly doubled from a decade ago.
WVU Tech has enrolled 75 more first-time freshman during the 2018-19 school year than it did when the Beckley campus opened last year, and Lang said although the number will hopefully continue to grow, he believes it's all due to what he called the "Beckley effect."
On Friday, October 5, Interim Campus President Dr. Gerald Lang delivered the annual State of Tech address to more than 60 attendees from the University and the community. His remarks covered the history of WVU Tech and a look at the university’s future, including the expansion of academic programs, recruitment initiatives for “Generation Z” students, encouraging students and faculty to continue building powerful connections with the local community and the addition of campus facilities.
With severe storm approaching the East Coast, WVU Tech reminds campus community about safety and resources
We urge students, faculty and staff to be prepared as the state braces for the impact of Hurricane Florence, making landfall along the East Coast later this week.
While there is no indication at this point that the Beckley campus will get hit hard by this storm, the impacts of Florence are expected to be felt in many parts of our region and members of our Golden Bear family may be affected.
