Once a Mountaineer … Always a Mountaineer
The West Virginia University Mountaineer community is more than a physical location, and more than just a collection of people. Of course it does include a place, Morgantown, West Virginia, a beautiful mountain setting where opportunities to hike, mountain bike, kayak, rock climb, and ski are minutes away. Our community also includes over 28,000 students, 1,900-plus faculty, and more than 175,000 alumni. But the true Mountaineer community is a welcoming, lifelong family.
