The Gsc Bluegrass Program

  The GSC Bluegrass Program While many students at Glenville State College are native or have been raised in West Virginia, there remains some who have not heard the beautiful music of the mountains, bluegrass. This music is a mixture of Appalachian ballads imported from the home countries in Europe, combined with later influences from African American jazz elements. Founded on August 3, 2007 at GSC, this uniquely original program was the first of its kind offered in the country. This program was built around [...]

Town and Gown in Glenville

Town and Gown in Glenville

“Town and Gown” in Glenville The relationship between the town (Glenville), and gown (GSC) has been a difficult journey since the inception of the college.  For years the two institutions lived in virtual isolation from each other.  The college and students remained detached from the community around them, and the town of Glenville did little to encourage interaction between students and local businesses. Today, both academic and local government leaders have been implementing a more cooperative approach.  College administrators were finding that the surrounding town [...]
