We encourage every student to share his or her unique perspectives and diverse cultural heritage because we believe our students are vital contributors to University and Community. We do this in part by offering programs throughout the year including international fairs and festivals, trips to explore the community, cultural celebrations, and events and activities to learn more about West Virginia University and the services we have to offer.

We can also assist you in your student groups event planning. Let us know what events you either have upcoming or would be interested in hosting!
