Summer Events

Can't wait the 60 days until freshmen football players report? Does the first game of the season seem 3 years, not 3 months, away? Pass the time by getting out to a WVU Alumni Association function in your area!

There are lots of activities to help renew your ties to WVU friends and families this summer while we wait for the fall sports season to kick off, so why not get out to one or more of them? You'll finds old friends, make new ones, and help support West Virginia University. What more, short of a football game, could you ask for?

Many alumni activities are listed on the Association's web page, but there are a couple that we'd like to draw your attention to.

The first is coming up this week - a trip to the ballpark for baseball. It's WVU Alumni Night At The Ballpark with the Washington Wild Things on Thursday, June 6.

Come out with your family and friends for a fun night at the ballpark and enjoy the Pre-game ALL-YOU-CAN-EAT picnic buffet! (Starts @ 5:30PM ends @ 7:00PM)

Total cost is $30 - includes game ticket, food and transportation to and from the game from Morgantown.
