If you’re thinking about college and starting the search process, consider exploring West Virginia University Potomac State College during its upcoming Discover Potomac State Day Open House event, Saturday, Sept. 15.

Be part of the Potomac State College experience where students are encouraged to engage and get involved in and out of class. Individuals attending a Discover Potomac State Day event will have the opportunity to ask questions of helpful faculty, chat with our students, tour campus, enjoy a complimentary lunch, and explore your interests.

According to Beth Little, Dean of Enrollment Management and University Relations, “There are more career options than ever before. However, with this exciting job market comes a more competitive landscape. Earning a degree can set an individual apart from other candidates plus provide them with greater earning potential. Discover Potomac State Day allows potential students and their families to explore the possibilities that WVU’s campus in Keyser offers.”

Discover Potomac State Day will kick off with registration and refreshments at 9 a.m. in the Davis Conference Center. The program begins at 9:30 a.m. with a welcome from Campus President Jennifer Orlikoff. Then students and parents are up and moving attending information stations located around campus including: a classroom demonstration, library and Academic Success Center services, financial aid overview, housing and residence life, and student clubs and activities.

You’ll also attend an academic fair to learn more about the majors we offer. Optional tours of our agriculture facilities and traditional residence halls will also be available.

Application reviews along with on-the-spot admission decisions will be made, so you’re encouraged to bring your high school transcripts with you.
