The Brief: Welcome Home, Business Students!

The Brief: Welcome Home, Business Students!

Even though the first day of class looked different this year, we stayed strong and made it through. Everyone at Chambers College is doing their part to keep you and your classmates safe, and we hope you are too.&

Now that you have been introduced to your classes (whether in-person or online), schedule time in your calendar to study and keep virtual event reminders on your phone so you never miss a beat.

While it’s important to stay on track, it’s also important to take care of yourself. 

We understand the current environment may be stressful, but we have no doubt that you will succeed this semester.

At WVU, we are one big family. Visit WVU’s  Refresh activity calendar to try something and connect with other Mountaineers!

West Virginia University  Carruth Center is offering virtual meetings and their free, confidential, 24-hour  Crisis Text Line. Text text WVU to 741741 and reach a live, trained Crisis Counselor.

You’re also welcome to talk to our  Chambers College Ambassadors or Peer Mentors for tips on studying and time management.

Find Your Fit

A Helping Hand 

Last year, West Virginia University implemented the college application, Handshake, to increase 

your access to nationwide opportunities and make it easier to apply to interviews, prepare for career fairs and events, connect with other students, and more! 

At Chambers College, our Center for Career Development (CCD) can help you create an account and  set up your profile to attract more employers. You can also view upcoming events in Handshake, such as resume reviews and career fairs. 

If you have any questions about Handshake, job searches or career needs, email the CCD at  Sarah.Glenn@mail.wvu.edu
