...Celebrating 65 years of Appalachian Heritage!
“It’s pleasing to see the student body show such a manifestation of spirit. We haven’t seen enthusiasm of this extent since prewar days.”

Mountaineer Week is WVU’s way of paying tribute to West Virginia’s heritage and traditions. Our number one priority of our event planning is to remind and educate our WVU students and community about the culture that has made West Virginia what it is today. We hope to attract thousands of visitors from our campus, community, state and region as we preserve and provide access to cultural and educational resources that bind people and cultures together.
