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.

Below are some selected and popular resources. More resources are available on the Campus and Community Life and Health Sciences websites. 

If you have specific questions, please e-mail

  • 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.

  • WELLWVU engages students in programs, services, and educational resources providing a comprehensive approach to wellness education. These resources include topics on alcohol and other drugs, relationships, stress management, and sexual health. There are also trainings available in the areas of mental health, emotional health, alcohol education, and training for intervention procedures. The transition from high school to college can impact your mental health - students can ensure they are taking care of themselves in this vital area by utilizing all the WELLWVU offers.

  • The Rack (WVU Student Food Pantry) aims to alleviate hunger and foster a healthy and inclusive community through access to food and programs for all WVU students. The Rack is open to all currently enrolled WVU students.  Students should bring their WVU ID and a bag to carry items. There are locations on both the downtown and Evansdale campuses.
