Choosing to become a Mountaineer is special.
Without a professional sports team in the state, folks
across the state and throughout the region love West
Virginia University athletics.
No school helps its student-athletes more than
the people at WVU. Mountaineers have the unique
opportunity to represent themselves, their teammates
and their university to news media, alumni, friends,
family and the general public. Your interaction with
these groups is also part of your educational process.
If you take advantage of these opportunities, it
can have a positive effect, not only on your career as a
student-athlete at West Virginia, but also on your life
after you have donned the Old Gold and Blue.
