WVUToday Feature Project

Each one of West Virginia University's nearly 30,000 students has a story worth telling, and this is the place to hear them.

Welcome to Project ME, a place for the University to tell your stories and introduce us to your passion.

Through Project ME, we help put a broader face on the WVU community—from the gamers to the Greeks, from the athletes to the artists, from the tinkerers to the teachers, all special in their own right.

Each month, we’ll feature a new WVU student and learn about their passion. Follow along as we show students from different backgrounds with various stories, and learn more about our University.

One story at a time.
