Parents, Prospective Students Visit Montgomery for Blue & Gold Day Open House

Last Saturday, March 22, WVU Tech hosted prospective students and their families on campus for a Blue & Gold Day Open House.

Hosted annually in the spring and fall, Blue & Gold Day provides an avenue for students to spend some time on campus and meet with current students, staff and faculty to discuss life and learning at WVU Tech. Interested students from throughout West Virginia and as far away as Florida, Texas and Missouri made the trip to Montgomery for Saturday’s gathering.

“I came to learn more about the school,” said Daniel Rakes, a Roane County, West Virginia student interested in Computer Science. “I want to know how much it costs and what the campus feels like. The people, small classes and going to a class where the teacher will know you is what I like about it.”

In all, 167 students and parents attended Saturday’s Open House where they heard from WVU Tech CEO Carolyn Long, learned about financial aid and toured the school’s campus.

“Blue and Gold Day is an important opportunity to show firsthand what WVU Tech has to offer,” said WVU Tech Senior Admissions Counselor Jeretta Ford. “The open house setting allows interested students and their families to experience a day on campus and interact with students and staff. It’s an experience you can’t get from a brochure.”
