GLENVILLE, WV – On Friday, August 16th, more than 350 new students will be welcomed to Glenville State College for the 2013-2014 academic school year which begins on Monday, August 19th.
To help these new students learn about the Glenville community including local businesses, churches, and other groups that might interest them, GSC is hosting a Campus Picnic & Community Fair.
The event will take place on Sunday, August 18th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the Clark Hall lawn. Representatives from community businesses, churches, and organizations are invited to set up displays to introduce themselves to the new students through the use of coupons, gift certificates, free samples, and information. The event is an opportunity to show these new GSC Pioneers what the community has to offer them.
“This is a very exciting time in the lives of these students, and we are giving local residents the chance to introduce their business, church, or organization to them. We are more than excited to be a part of such a wonderful community who so willingly gives back to those in the area. A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living,” said GSC Director of Student Activities Jodi Ocheltree.
Anyone interested in participating should reserve a table by Friday, August 9th. To make reservations or for additional information, contact Ocheltree at Jodi.Ocheltree@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6416.
