Glenville, WV – Glenville State College students, faculty, and staff will be showing off what GSC has to offer April 16th through 20th for the annual Spring 2012 Pioneer Preview. This event is one of two annual campus open houses for prospective students to learn all about GSC.
“GSC Spring 2012 Pioneer Preview is a wonderful time where upcoming freshman can tour the campus and register for Fall 2012 classes.
