Potomac State Students Tour Morgantown Campus

Twenty-five Potomac State students traveled from Keyser to Morgantown West Virginia this month to tour the campus they intend to soon call home.

As students unloaded the bus at One Waterfront Place, they were greeted by the hospitable WVU Transfer and Admissions staff who would be guiding them through their visit. While at One Waterfront Place, students heard a presentation by Transfer Admissions Counselor, Lindsay Augustine, on the extensive academic opportunities available on-campus as well as introducing them to a WV treat - pepperoni rolls. PSC to WVU

Students were then transported across campus to visit the College they intend to join such as: Eberly College of Arts and Sciences, College of Business and Economics, Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design, College of Physical Activity & Sport Sciences, Statler College of Engineering and Mineral Resources, and WVU School of Medicine. After walking the halls and meeting with faculty, many students then sat down for one-on-one academic planning with WVU advisors.

“I loved the campus, and having the personal meeting with an advisor really made me feel confident in the transition,” said Yeme Tadesse, who studies Communications at Potomac State.

After a full day of walking the campus and receiving, at times, a literal taste of Morgantown, students were given tickets to watch the WVU Men’s Basketball victory over the Texas Tech Red Raiders in a Big XII matchup at the Coliseum. “Watching the Mountaineers play was such a great experience,” added Tadesse, “I can certainly see myself fitting in here.”
