Empowering Your Student

Cole Smith |

We are thrilled to share some exciting news about your first-year freshman's college experience! As they embark on this new chapter in their lives, we want to highlight the importance of career readiness and its positive impact on their future success. In May, our Office of Student Success created and filled a new role within CAHS to assist with preparing our students to be career ready. Kelly Drayer, our new Student Experience Coordinator, is here to do just that! Career readiness serves as the cornerstone for a smooth transition into the workforce. It is the steppingstone that propels their career forward and sets the stage for a prosperous future. Think of career readiness as the new and vibrant currency that opens doors to endless possibilities. Kelly will be working alongside your student from day one and remain a constant resource throughout their college undergraduate journey. She will be modeling the 8 core National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) competencies for a career-ready workforce.

The College of Applied Human Sciences (CAHS) recognizes that the wants and needs of our students have changed, and that to best serve them we need to be able to act faster and provide a more personalized support structure. Our students have embraced technology as a source of solutions and support, and CAHS has developed a new web-based app focused on the overall well-being of students that meets them right where they are.  The YOU at WVU app simultaneously delivers personalized content virtually while also working to connect students to people and physical resources on campus that can help them achieve personal and academic success. YOU at WVU bridges that gap between their digital world and WVU’s campus.
