The Brief: It's Not Too Late to Get Involved!

The Brief: It's Not Too Late to Get Involved!

Student Organizations 

As a business student, we know it’s important to build relationships. That’s why we offer 30+ student organizations that are specific to Chambers College. 

Whether you’re interested in joining a business fraternity, such as Alpha Kappa Psi or Delta Sigma Pi, sticking with your major, such as finance and hospitality, or you want to empower women for success in the workplace, there’s an organization for you at Chambers College. 

“As a freshman, I thought joining student organizations would be a great opportunity for me to broaden my horizons at WVU. By doing so, I was able to discover a lot about myself and my interests while developing lifelong friendships. Some of the organizations I’m involved with include Delta Sigma Pi, Pakistani Students Association and Women in Business.” – Pareera Uqaily, Sophomore Accounting & Management Information System Student 

Mark your calendars for our virtual Student Org Fair on Monday, November 9.

Tutoring 101

It’s not too early to start preparing for finals! Even if you feel confident in your coursework, it’s best to ask for help when you need it. 

The Academic engagement Success Center (AeSC) offers tutoring through our Neidermeyer Scholars program, for courses including: ACCT 201, ACCT 202, ECON 201, ECON 202, and ECON 225.

“I had a wonderful experience with my Neidermeyer Scholar. My tutor had a talent for being able to break down complicated course work into simple and relatable material, and made Econ enjoyable.” – Anonymous Business Student
