New Opportunities Await You

The Front of Chambers College in Winter 2019

Happy 2021, Chambers College students! 

A new year brings a new start – and we could not be more excited to kick off 2021 with a clean slate. 

While 2020 was challenging, our students, faculty and staff still made it a successful year. 

As you plan out your semester, think about how you will be successful. Whether you graduate in May, you secure an internship or a full-time position, or you get involved in a student organization, you have the choice to make 2021 your best year yet!

The Chambers College is always looking to share student news. If you have a story to share, we want to hear it, and possibly share it on social media and with our alumni. 

Let’s Go!

Chambers Ambassadors and Peer Mentors

Do you embody both the spirit of a Mountaineer and a business student? Are you someone who other students look up to on campus? You may be a good fit as a Chamber College Ambassador or Peer Mentor!

Our Chambers Ambassadors know the ins and outs of our campus, but they can also help others learn more about specific business majors, minors, student organizations, and College events.

Our Peer Mentors assist first-semester freshmen with their transition to college life as a business student at WVU by sharing their knowledge, skills and perspectives. As a peer mentor, you will attend BCOR 191 courses this semester and the students in their assigned section will be their mentees.

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.

Beginning in the spring semester, we will be sharing videos of our organizations on the Chambers College Instagram account – @wvuchambers – to highlight the different business clubs and orgs that other business students can get involved in.

We’re asking leaders of our organizations to submit a 60-second, vertical video explaining your club and why someone should join by Monday, February 1.

Email your video to
