Join Potomac State for a Homecoming Celebration
October marks the beginning of change in West Virginia; change of weather, change of leaves, and even a few changes to tradition. This October will mark the beginning of new Potomac State College of WVU Homecoming Celebrations!
Homecoming will feature more events that engage Potomac State College’s beloved students, alumni, and community.
Students will enjoy a variety of campus events such as: a Homecoming banner competition, pumpkin carving, meet the ghost hunters, golf at Polish Pines, and the Homecoming dance! For the full schedule, click here.
