West Virginia State University Day at the Capitol set for Tuesday, Feb. 6

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The State Capitol building will be swarmed by hundreds of Yellow Jackets on Tuesday, Feb. 6, 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. 

“This is a great day for the Yellow Jacket Nation, and a wonderful opportunity for us to share with our elected officials our groundbreaking research, and our extension efforts that are crucial to our state and nation,” said WVSU President Anthony Jenkins. “Moreover, it serves as a platform to illustrate our national award-winning students and faculty, as well are our nationally ranked academic programs.”

More than 40 informational 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.
