Through the eyes of a WVU freshman

Video relives those first moments of becoming a Mountaineer.

Sometimes you forget to stop and remember the moments that could change your life. West Virginia University’s Class of 2017 went through many defining moments in the last week.

In just a few days, our incoming students went from high school graduate to Mountaineers. They moved into residence halls, met their roommates and potentially some life-long friends (even if they don’t realize it yet), took their first class and experienced their first FallFest.

It happens so fast. Before they know it, they’re on the daily grind and forget about what it was like the first time they drove past the “Welcome to West Virginia” sign on their way to WVU or the time they stepped foot in Woodburn Circle as a student.

This video will take you back to those special moments every college student has experienced once.
