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.
The Mountain State lost more than 600 people to suicide last year.
It’s a sobering statistic. And it’s one that will be on a lot of minds this week as the WVU Tech Counseling Center hosts events on and off campus in honor of Suicide Prevention Week.
On Wednesday, August 15, WVU Tech’s students returned to campus to start the 2018-2019 academic year. But for more than 400 new Golden Bears, it’s already been an exciting few days.
The WVU Tech campus will welcome more than 400
new students for New Student Orientation, August 12-14.
On Sunday, August 12, new students will move into residence halls from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. That afternoon, the University will host a welcome picnic for students and families on the Carter Hall lawn. That event is expected to host nearly 1,000 guests.
