On Thursday (April 28) West Virginia University Student Affairs will host its second annual Sophomore Celebration in the Blue and Gold rooms of the Evansdale Residential Complex from 6-8 p.m.

The celebratory event will give freshmen the opportunity to come together to have fun and talk to various campus units about the valuable resources they offer.

Entertainment will be provided by the “Hide and Seek Effect” band, and free t-shirts will be given to the first 500 students to attend the event. Students will also have the opportunity to talk with representatives of off-campus housing properties from the Morgantown community, be eligible to win prizes and enjoy a variety of snacks.

“The WVU Sophomore/Junior Year Experience is excited to partner with WVU Residential Education in providing this celebration for all students making the transition from their freshman to sophomore year,” said Sheila Powell, special assistant to the vice president for WVU Student Affairs. “Students will begin the evening with a ceremony, and throughout the evening they will have the opportunity to meet with various campus units in a relaxed and fun environment.”

“Residential Education is excited to co-sponsor the second Student Affairs Sophomore Celebration,” said Assistant Director of WVU Residential Education Alicia Moore. “We are also excited to give out over $2,000 in giveaways this year.”
