Reflecting on our journey

The College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences 85th Anniversary is a yearlong festivity, commemorating the first class to graduate from the college.

Amid constant change and challenges throughout history, the college’s calling within the fields of physical activity and sport sciences has remained the same: To create and share knowledge that improves lives in West Virginia and around the world.

This yearlong celebration will enable the college to reflect on that calling -- on the history of educating growing numbers of students and, most importantly, vision for the next 85 years of transforming lives.
