All of us at UC-Beckley are excited that you will be joining the UC community this fall and are looking forward to meeting you at New Student Orientation. This year's theme is “Start Something That Matters,” and all new students are encouraged to read the book by that name, written by Blake Mycoskie, the founder of TOMS shoes. (It is available at most bookstores or online).

Orientation is mandatory for all new students. We have created a program that will help you learn more about UC, make new friends, interact with faculty and staff, begin earning academic credit, and hopefully start something that matters!  Please make plans to join us for check-in, move-in, and a family cookout on Friday, August 23.  Complete schedules for orientation are below.

If you have any questions, please contact Kim Bess, Student Life Coordinator, at 304 929-1474 or
