Opportunities to serve faculty, staff and fellow students abound for student employees at West Virginia University who also advance their learning outside the classroom and offset the cost of earning their degrees. Two students, employed by the Division of Student Life which creates programs that advance the University’s mission, develop and build community on campus and help campus offices operate more efficiently, have been recognized for their leadership and service through the Herman L. Moses Scholarship
