West Virginia State University Day at the Capitol set for Tuesday, March 14

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The State Capitol building will be swarmed by hundreds of Yellow Jackets on Tuesday, March 14, for West Virginia State University Day (WVSU) at the Capitol.

The free, annual event will bring WVSU students, administrators, faculty and staff to Charleston to meet with West Virginia lawmakers, University alumni and the public from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

“West Virginia State University Day at the Capitol is a day for the University to showcase our diverse academic programs, student support services, community and regional involvement as well as the many extension and research initiatives driven by our land-grant mission,” said WVSU President Anthony L. Jenkins. “This day also allows us to remind the Governor, the members of the Legislature and the other state entities of the vital role the University plays in helping drive a more diverse economy.”

More than 40 displays will be set up throughout the upper rotunda of the State Capitol presenting the variety of educational offerings to be found at WVSU, as well as information on student services, Yellow Jacket athletics, admissions, extension services and alumni events.
