West Virginia University at the State Fair of West Virginia

West Virginia University Building

The State Fair of West Virginia attracts tens of thousands of fans each day. West Virginia University has a strong presence each day of the Fair, showcasing academic programs, resources and outreach initiatives. This event is a great way to connect with future students, parents, alumni, fans and others who are passionate about the University. 

WVU and WVU Extension host exhibits in the WVU Building for the duration of the Fair. The interactive exhibits provide visitors with a unique opportunity to get to know WVU (and, in some cases, reconnect with the university).
