Greetings, Alumni and Friends of Our Wonderful College,

It has been a rainy couple of weeks at WVU Potomac State College, and I am glad.

Lately, I have been thinking about how rain is also a metaphor for what this administration is working hard to accomplish with and for WVU Potomac State College.

Greetings from the PSC Alumni Association President

Our Catamount alumni comprise a much larger group than just those who graduated.

John Wilkinson recalls WVU Potomac State College fondly. He graduated in 1978 from PSC and remains connected to the campus to this day. “The campus was a perfect fit for me.

Alumni Mentorship Program

We heard you! When the PSC Alumni Association received the results from the Engagement Survey last year, by far the most requested item was to mentor and help students. The board has been diligently working in partnership with the College to develop the WVU PSC Alumni Mentorship Program.

This program is designed to help students gain expertise while building their professional networks. The students will be teamed up with an alumni mentor, who will share their knowledge and experience in areas such as career goals, networking, educational planning, confidence and morale building, and study and time management.
