CHARLESTON, WV – On Tuesday, February 28, Glenville State University students, staff, and faculty gathered at the West Virginia State Capitol for Glenville State Day at the Legislature.

Representatives were on hand from various academic departments, Admissions, Alumni Relations, and Athletics to share information and answer visitor questions.

Those assembled from Glenville State also visited the House of Delegates and Senate Chambers for special recognitions. Citations were issued from both chambers marking the day.

“What a great day it was to be a Glenville State University Pioneer,” said Glenville State President, Dr. Mark A. Manchin. “We always enjoy visiting the statehouse and to have the opportunity to speak with our lawmakers – and we appreciate them hosting us for Glenville State University Day. Our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends enjoyed the day immensely.”

In addition to celebrating all things Glenville State University, the day was also an opportunity to mark Glenville State’s 151st anniversary. The institution was founded by an act of the West Virginia Legislature on February 19, 1872.
