West Virginia State University to Host Annual Open House October 19
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) will host its annual Yellow Jacket Open House on Saturday, October 19, beginning at 8 a.m. in the Ferrell Hall Auditorium.

“Our annual Yellow Jacket Open House is a perfect opportunity for prospective students and their families to visit West Virginia State University and explore our distinguished academic programs, engage with faculty and students, and become familiar with our student life and engagement activities and learn about our history and traditions” said Jameelah Means, Director of the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

During the event prospective students and their families will hear from a panel of current students about their experiences at WVSU and share why their journey “Starts at STATE.”  

The program will feature presentations about the admissions process and requirements, financial aid and scholarship options, and student life and engagement activities. Throughout the day onsite admissions decisions will be made for freshman and transfer students that would like to enroll at WVSU for the fall 2020 semester.

Also during the open house, Yellow Jacket Student Ambassadors will provide guided walking tours of campus.
All Open House participants will receive free tickets to attend the October 19 WVSU vs. Urbana University football game.  Kickoff is set for noon at Lakin Field at Dickerson Stadium.
