Empowering Your Student

Adam Zundell |

As the spring semester draws to a close, we want to recognize the incredible achievements of our Mountaineers. College is difficult. There are academic and social obstacles, but there are also life-changing opportunities. At the end of each year, the College of Applied Human Sciences comes together for the CAHS Spring Celebration – an event where we recognize the grit, determination, and success our students have.  We will gather to share cookies, donuts, coffee, and fruit, but also stories from another successful year.  Students who earned a spot on the President’s or Dean’s list will receive a keychain and a token as a physical representation of their achievement.  Each additional semester a student earns a place on the President’s or Dean’s list they will receive a unique token.  Students will also have the opportunity to participate in the creation of a memory chain where they can inscribe a memory from the past academic year on paper and add it to the collective experiences of the rest of the college.

Last fall semester, the College of Applied Human Sciences launched a new web app designed to support students through a comprehensive approach to well-being and student success – YOU at WVU.  The web app delivers personalized content digitally, and also works to connect students to people and resources on campus that can help them to achieve success. It helps to bridge that gap between the digital world and WVU’s campus.
