I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.
- Maya Angelou, autobiographer and poet

“We know not where seed may sprout. In the poorest and most unregarded child who seems to be abandoned to ignorance and evil, there may slumber virtue, intellect and genius. It is our duty to sow and to nurture, leaving it to others to harvest the fruits of our efforts.”

Glenville State College could not offer such an excellent education, athletic programs or extracurricular events without the help of alumni and friends like you.

Glenville State College employees may contribute via check, credit card, or payroll deduction by filling out an Employee Payroll Deduction Form.

Waco Center

Help us close the gap on funding for the Waco Center!

Many opportunities exist for helping raise the remaining funds for the Waco Center, recently constructed on Mineral Road. This state-of-the-art center houses an expanded Land Resources center, addressing the needs of the oil and gas, forestry, surveying and environmental science industries as the Marcellus Shale is developed and produces increased opportunities for young men and women to stay in West Virginia and earn high paying wages. The center also will include a medical center that will give students, faculty, staff and the Gilmer County community access to 24/7 medical care. One of the most exciting elements in the center is the 3,000 plus seat arena that provides space for our indoor sports as well as a venue for concerts, trade shows and other large gatherings.

Donations can be as little as $100.00 for a seat in the auditorium to $250,000 for naming rights to larger rooms and areas of concentration in the center. Contact Dennis Pounds, Vice President for College Advancement, in the Glenville State College Foundation office at (304) 462-6381 or email at dennis.pounds@glenville.edu for more information on how you can help.
