WVU and the City of Morgantown are making it easier for students as they move out of their on and off-campus housing throughout the next two weeks.
WVU is collecting gently used items through the United Way Blue and Gold Mine Sale. Students and community members are asked to give up their unwanted household items to the sale to benefit the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties.
Students are welcome to donate furniture, clothes, linens, bedding, rugs, lamps, desks, books and much more.
Donation stations of “pods” to donate to the Blue and Gold Mine Sale can be found at all residence halls, the WVU Student Recreation Center, the Seneca Center, Chateau Royale, Grant Avenue, “Mountaineer Station”http://transportation.wvu.edu/mountaineerstation and the intersection of Prospect and Spruce Streets.
Spring is the ideal time to perform upkeep tasks outdoors. Removing fallen or trimming overgrown trees are essential parts of property maintenance. WVU Extension Service experts suggest tips to keep you and your property safeand your trees healthy.
Each year, approximately 85 people die in the United States as a result of accidents that occur from improperly trimming and pruning trees, according to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health data.
“The safest way to trim a tree is to hire a professional,” said Karen Cox, WVU Extension Service Marshall County agriculture program assistant.
The Outdoor Recreation Center is hosting a family camping trip on June 14-16. The event, ideal for kids 5 years and older, will visit Seneca Rocks, Blackwater falls and Dolly Sods. The cost is $60 per person. Register at the Outdoor Recreation Center at 304-293-5076.
Due to a hardware failure at WVNET this afternoon, several WVU systems were temporarily unavailable. The equipment has been replaced and MAP, MyTime, and MyAccess, are now operational. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Dr. Jose “Zito” Sartarelli has been named West Virginia University’s chief global officer, a role he will assume in addition to serving as dean of the College of Business and Economics.
This appointment will centralize responsibility for all international activities in teaching, research and service. Sartarelli will continue to report to Provost Michele Wheatly.
Sartarelli will develop strong collaborations with the chancellor of health sciences and with the vice presidents of student affairs and research. He will also be accountable to the president for advancing the global engagement goal of the university’s 2020 Strategic Plan.
The CGO will work hand-in-hand with an advisory board representing all university constituents to implement the recommendations of the Global Engagement Round Table and the campus-wide work group that supported the original strategic plan development.
Facilities Planning and Scheduling is replacing WebViewer with a new web-based event scheduling program called 25Live. This program is an enhancement over WebViewer and from the same vendor. We are currently taking event requests through 25Live. We will continue to take requests through WebViewer during the transition period but will eventually be taking the WebViewer site down and will be offering no new training sessions on it.
25Live allows users to request non course events (study sessions, meetings, etc) in multiple spaces across campus. For now, faculty and staff can use it to request events in general purpose classrooms (on the Downtown and Evansdale campus), computer training labs, and/or the recreation fields.
The current training schedule for 25Live can be found at http://facilitiesscheduling.wvu.edu/training-schedule/25live-training The training labs have capacity limits so please sign up for any session you want to attend.
This time of the year marks another bittersweet moment, as WVU will congratulate and bid farewell to its latest class of graduating international students.
The students will be recognized as honorary citizens of Morgantown on May 16 at the International Students Graduation Reception at 4 p.m. at the Erickson Alumni Center. WVU President Jim Clements will address the graduates and president and CEO of the WVU Alumni Association Steve Douglas will welcome graduates as future WVU alumni.
“For the past several years these students have enriched the WVU campus and the Morgantown community with the richness of their diverse cultures and backgrounds,” said Assistant Director of the Office of International Students and Scholars Grace Atebe.

The WVU Libraries have selected six faculty members to participate in the fifth year of its Information Literacy Course Enhancement Program, an initiative to enhance courses to help students improve their research skills and to become more discerning when searching for and using information.
A collaborative endeavor between the Libraries and the Provost’s Office, the program focuses on fulfilling the University’s 2020 Plan, which calls for “engaging undergraduate, graduate, and professional students in a challenging academic environment.” Information literacy is the ability to find, evaluate, and effectively use information.
