Mary Kinsley |

Gov. Jim Justice today (July 3) issued executive orders declaring July 5, 2019 as an official holiday for State employees, this includes Mon Co buses. Unfortunately this means there are no buses running on Friday, July 5th.  With an overwhelming majority of campers riding buses to camp, we will not have NYSP Camp on Friday.  We look forward to seeing everyone at the WVU Mountainlair on Monday, July 8th.

It is important to note, WVU will operate on a normal schedule, including Lifetime Activities Child's Swim classes on Friday, July 5,  as well as regular WVU classes for students and faculty.
