A majority of the nearly 5,000 students who are graduating have been at WVU for four years, and that means that – from about the time they stepped onto campus and moved into their dorm to the time they walk across the stage at Commencement – they’ve been college students for roughly 24,000 hours.
That’s a pretty long time – long enough to do some amazing things. And, our students have done that.
24,000 hours is a website on WVUToday that features the stories of a few of our students who will graduate later this month. They focus on a particular moment or a span of time that brought each of these students clarity about their college careers. You can visit it at http://wvutoday.wvu.edu/features/24000.
In addition to these stories, we’ll also be remembering the last two weeks of our senior’s college careers through Storify. Seniors are encouraged to use the #wvugrad hashtag to join the conversation. Follow us on Twitter (@WestVirginiaU).
For the first time during Commencement, WVU will also hold an Instagram Daily Photo Challenge. Each day for the next two weeks, the entire WVU community will have a chance to post photos on Instagram that coincide with that day’s theme. The best photo each day will receive a prize courtesy of WVU Trademark Licensing. Make sure those photos are posted with #wvugrad. For more information, follow WVU on Instagram (@WestVirginiaU).
