Gee Mail: Welcome to the Mountaineer Family

With a fresh semester officially here, West Virginia University has welcomed more than 5,000 new students into its family. 

That also means a lot of parents who, perhaps, are confronted with a transition themselves. 

Leave it to WVU President Gordon Gee to help ease any parental concerns. He dropped by the “I Survived Move-In” reception Saturday (Aug. 17) to lend a shoulder and ear to moms and dads who nudged their children off into adulthood. 

“With the excitement that accompanies a new fall semester, we all can learn a thing or two from our new students and their parents,” Gee said. “Transition can be a challenging part of life. But with the right mindset and support, we will embark on this new journey with a confidence and comfort that leads us to bigger and better things.”
