Open House

A large group of people mingle in front of Carter Hall with the WVU Beckley Campus sign in the foreground.One of our biggest events of the year, Open House is a great way to experience WVU Tech alongside lots of other prospective students and their families.

We typically host four Open House events each year - two in the fall and two in the spring. It's a great opportunity to bring along any friends or family and see what being a Golden Bear is all about.

At Open House, you'll:

Tour campus

Explore where we live, work, learn and play. You'll see our classroom, computer lab and laboratory spaces. You'll explore our athletic spaces and the places where students like to hang out. You'll discover all the administrative offices where you can get assistance, the support centers where you can get free academic advising and tutoring, our library, bookstore, dining hall and so much more.

Enjoy lunch on us

Speaking of dining, we'll provide lunch so you don't have to do all that exploring on an empty stomach.

Meet your professors and see where you'll work

You'll meet one-on-one with professors in your program of study. You'll also tour our facilities, including the classrooms and high-tech labs where you'll be learning your trade.

Explore student life at Tech

Hear from our Dean of Students and other members of Student Life. They'll walk you through all of the fun activities, programs and clubs you can be a part of. They'll share information on support services, health care services (like our student health clinic and our counseling center) and campus safety. It's everything you need to know about being a student at Tech.

Learn about residence hall living

Thinking about living on campus? You'll see our residence halls, take a look at residence hall rooms  and meet with residence hall staff who can answer your questions about campus life.

Find out about financial aid

Paying for college doesn't have to be a mystery. You and your family will have a chance to sit down one-on-one with a financial aid counselor. They'll walk you through everything you need to know - like the types of financial aid, the FAFSA, what it costs to earn your degree and anything else you want to know.

Learn about legacies

If a member of your family went to WVU Tech, you'll even have a chance to speak with our alumni office about Legacy scholarship opportunities.

Gear up (at a discount)

The WVU Tech bookstore has all kinds of great stuff that Open House visitors can purchase at a special discount.

And more

There are no dumb questions at Open House. This is the perfect opportunity to ask anything you want to know about college life. Plus, you won't leave empty-handed because we'll have a special gift for you.
