Gee Mail: Calling on Future Mountaineers

West Virginia University is a family tied by a common gold-and-blue thread. That family grows every year as WVU welcomes more members into the fold.

In this Gee Mail, WVU President Gordon Gee reaches out, via FaceTime, to some of these new family members joining us in the fall – before they’ve even stepped inside the classroom.

He wants to get to know them and answer their questions before their educational journey begins. 

“I know that going to college can be a little unnerving,” Gee said. “You wonder if you will fit in and you worry about making friends. You think about where you are going to live, what you will eat and what classes to take. 

“Well, I can assure you that we have a dedicated team that will help every step of the way as you transition to college life. 

“I look forward to seeing each of these wonderful students in the fall.” 

And if you’ve ever wondered what Gee would look like behind some wacky face filters, you’re in for a treat at the end of the video.
