Realize What’s Possible
Dear Alumni and Friends of Potomac State College of WVU,
As we are about to embark upon another school year, we look forward to the hustle and bustle of new and returning students. Our summer has been a busy one as we hired an Interim Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Edem G. Tetteh; an Associate Director of Academic Affairs, Phil Douthitt; a Director of Development, Lucas Taylor; and an Interim Unit Coordinator of Agriculture Forestry and Campus Farms, Ben Walsh.
Our newly renovated soccer field with artificial turf and lights will greet our incoming students as well as an updated front entrance to our newest residence hall, Catamount Place. The bottom floor of the Mary F. Shipper Library now houses the upgraded Academic Success Center complete with group study areas, tutoring, and a computer lab.
We look forward to cheering on our new athletic teams; men’s and women’s cross country this fall and men’s and women’s lacrosse next spring. The PSC Baseball team is looking forward to WVU’s gift of Hawley Field’s grandstands/press box, coming to PSC in the near future. Our “Buy A Brick” Campaign has netted us more than $10,000 toward a new Golden Park Clubhouse.
We continue to offer a quality education at a very affordable price and we are ranked amongst the lowest tuition in the nation. Alumni frequently express gratitude for the one-on-one attention they received and the overall caring and family atmosphere on the Potomac State campus.
We have a lot happening and would love to have you join us as we continue to move forward. How can you help; by getting involved. Below is just a sampling of ideas on ways to help:
