Fleming Hall

The D. Stephen and Diane H. Walker Convocation Center at West Virginia State University (WVSU) is set to open on March 1, 2014. Naming opportunities for bricks and lockers are still available. Click here to see photographs of the construction.

Athletic Complex and Enhancement

To remain competitive in its new Athletic Conference, West Virginia State must upgrade its athletic facilities. Located at Lakin Field, the Athletic Complex will create a dynamic new home for the Yellow Jackets Football team and will support the training needs of ALL student athletes in its state-of-the-art weight training facility. Naming opportunities are available. The University is also seeking support to install artificial turf and lights and upgrade facilities that support its Athletic Fields.


New Residence Hall

As one of its highest capital priorities, West Virginia State is partnering with a developer to support construction of a new Residence Hall that will create modern, suite-style housing for 200 to 300 students. Private gifts will be essential for the purchase of equipment and technology to provide the best possible living and learning environment for students. Naming opportunities are available.


Hamblin Hall Addition

Building upon a strong history of education in the sciences, and empowered by a thriving partnership with the Research and Development Corporation, West Virginia State University’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is growing in student enrollment and in research activity. The Hamblin Hall Addition will provide critically needed laboratory space and upgraded equipment to support this growth. Naming opportunities are available from $50,000 to $1 million.


Center for Adult and Commuter Student Services

The Center for Adult and Commuter Student Services will provide the welcoming, supportive environment that commuter students and adult learners need to succeed as they balance their studies with work and family responsibilities. It will also serve as a resource for community members seeking to take summer courses or increase their expertise in specific areas without enrolling as full-time students. Naming opportunities are available from $10,000 to $200,000.

Technology Infrastructure and Upgrades

Help West Virginia State to provide the tools students need to be successful in a competitive and rapidly changing technological environment. Opportunities include increased bandwidth, wireless Internet access across campus, and equipment for laboratories and classrooms.
