Bleeding Gold & Blue… West Virginia University Traditions

West Virginia University boasts a history of great traditions that embody Mountaineer pride.

From the fun of the PRT Cram during Mountaineer Week to the dignity of commencement, traditions link us to the past and to the future. It’s a great time for everyone, young and old, to be a Mountaineer.

While trends and fads may come and go with the passing of generations, WVU has endured since 1867 to fulfill the dreams of its students and of West Virginia’s citizens through great teaching, research, and service. And that’s the most important tradition of all. As Young Alumni, it is our responsibility to keep these traditions alive and pass them on to future generations.
