Pam Pritt: WVU Magazine is everyone's connection to the West Virginia University campus. Whether you've been here as an alumni, or as a sports fan, as faculty or staff, it's a way to keep connected to all the good things that go on here at WVU.
Shauna Johnson: That includes the local to global impact of campus thought leaders, creating a trusted source for information and insights into the university's student focus. It's a land grant mission and what makes it unique.
Pam Pritt: You'll read about students, you'll read about faculty, their research. You'll read about the fun things like color guard and cheerleaders and athletics. You'll read about the work that goes on here. You'll read about alums who have gone on to accomplish great things in their communities and who give back to West Virginia University. You'll read about Mountaineers.
Shauna Johnson: You can see WVU Magazine online at magazine.wvu.edu. In 2024, the publication will be available quarterly in print.
