Steering the Ship to Shore and Beyond
When I came to study for my doctorate at West Virginia University in the mid-2000s as a tall, lanky dark-haired kid with a knack for Pearl Jam (which persists), I never imagined I’d be here more than 15 years later – as the leader of the very college where I earned my stripes.
How Sweet it is... to be a WVU Business Alumna
It is 2015 and a young woman sits in her high school classroom in Willoughby, Ohio, thinking about her college plans. Friends to her left talk about Case Western Reserve University, while friends to her right chat about the University of Cincinnati. It’s almost Halloween and she reaches in her pocket for a mini–Almond Joy candy bar. She eats it and thinks, “maybe biomedical engineering and a career in prosthetics” would do. With scholarship aid, she soon discovered that her college career would take her over the mountain to West Virginia University.

Come One, Come All
This year, our College welcomed the highest incoming freshman class to date – more than 600 incoming first-year students. Our Undergraduate Recruitment team goes above and beyond to provide a personalized experience for our admitted students. “Call and letter writing campaigns are completed with the purpose of a) assisting with the application process, b) answering any questions students and their parents may have, and c) making students feel special. Many other colleges do not employ the methods that we do. The feedback we receive routinely mentions the personalized experience as a reason for choosing Chambers and WVU,” said Rebel Smith, Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Programs.
Immersed in Indonesian
Jana El-Khatib, a Master of Business Administration student from Hurricane, West Virginia, was one of four WVU students to earn the Critical Language Scholarship from the U.S. Department of State. Over the summer of 2021, El-Khatib got to study Indonesian, a language she became interested in after spending time living in Southeast Asia as a Fulbright English Teaching Assistant. She hopes to use the skills gained from the scholarship to improve her cultural competency for a future career as a healthcare provider.
A Refreshing Experience
Mason Harp is not only a Chambers College marketing junior, but he is also WVU’s Coca-Cola Ambassador. In fact, he is currently ranked 1st on the leaderboard for Coca-Cola Campus Ambassadors. “I am extremely excited to be working with Coca-Cola. The chance to add a Fortune 500 Company to my resume will help make me more marketable when applying for internships and other future opportunities,” Harp said.
