GLENVILLE, WV – On Friday, August 15th, new students will be welcomed to Glenville State College (GSC) for the 2014-2015 academic school year. Students will use Friday and the weekend to become acquainted with the school and community before classes begin on Monday, August 18th.
To help the 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 Saturday, August 16th beginning at 4:30 p.m. on the lawn near GSC’s Clark Hall. 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 annual event is an opportunity to show 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 themselves and their organizations to them. We are more than excited to be a part of such a wonderful community that so willingly gives back to those in the area,” said GSC Director of Student Activities Jodi Ocheltree.
Anyone interested in participating should reserve a table by Friday, August 8th. To make reservations or for additional information, contact Ocheltree at Jodi.Ocheltree@glenville.edu or (304) 462-6416.
