State of Minds Campaign for WVU Potomac State College

A State of Minds Campaign 2018

On the weekend of June 1, 2018 the West Virginia University Foundation hosted several events to celebrate the success of West Virginia University’s “State of Minds” Campaign.  The campaign officially came to a close on December 31st, 2017- The ten-year campaign launched in 2007. 

The university reached an astounding number of over $1,200,000,000!  As a participant in this campaign, WVU Potomac State College set a goal of $8,800,000.  Thanks to the generosity and compassion of alumni and friends, Potomac State College surpassed its goal and raised $11,242,440.66. 

Out of that total, $9,287,126 benefited undergraduate student experience and education.  This includes but is not limited to; scholarships, special projects, athletic programs and infrastructure enhancements.

$1,955,313 supported faculty excellence including but not limited to faculty development programs, trips, and academic program development. 

Potomac State College is incredibly grateful for all the support we received during this historic campaign.  Every dollar mattered and had a life-changing impact on the students, faculty, staff of Potomac State and the local community. 

We would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to everyone that participated.  And even though this campaign has come to a close, this is only the beginning of a very exciting future for Potomac State College and the Keyser community.
