The success of our students is our number one priority. West Virginia University and the College of Applied Human Sciences have an abundance of resources available both in-person and online to help our students deal with all of the various challenges that college can present.
If you have specific questions, please e-mail CAHSInfo@mail.wvu.edu.
The YOU at WVU app is an investment in our student’s success. The app helps students deal with issues before they become problems. Students expect personalized on-demand resources, and that is what the app delivers. You at WVU connects students to people and resources on campus that can help them achieve personal and academic success. Students will be introduced to the app during orientation, and it will be woven into their first-year seminar, and other courses.
Career readiness serves as the cornerstone for a smooth transition from college to the workforce. Our new Student Experience Coordinator – Kelly Drayer – is here to ensure CAHS students graduate ready for what comes next. From help with resumes, to help finding an internship, to improving in the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) competencies.
Every student in the College of Applied Human Sciences has a Student Success Coordinator who serves as their advisor and “go-to” person for any questions or concerns they have while navigating their path to a higher education. Students must meet with their Student Success Coordinator at least once a semester to check in on current progress and plan courses for the next semester, but they are glad to meet as often as a student wants. Encourage your student to reach out to their advisor.
The Purpose Center - Just as your student’s favorite food or music genre may change over time or with new experiences, so will their dreams and aspirations. Discovering who they are, their values and the strengths they lean on will guide them on their path of self-discovery. Understanding their purpose is a journey. And our purpose is to help them explore theirs.
