The ceremony will be on Saturday, May 18, 2013, at 9:30 a.m. in the Creative Arts Center (CAC) on WVU’s Evansdale Campus. Gradautes must arrive by 8:30 a.m. for line-up. Graduates will report to the Davis Theater for check-in and instructions. Please leave your personal belongings with a family member or friend, as the Davis Theater will not be locked during the ceremony.
The doors to the main theater will open approximately 45 minutes before the ceremony. Please remember that all guest seats are assigned by ticket number. Guests will need to have their printed tickets to enter the theater. Should a guest forget the ticket, printers will be available at the CAC.
For those guests without tickets, there will be overflow seating available in the CAC lobby with monitors for viewing the ceremony in real-time. The event will also be webcast live at http://graduation.wvu.edu/commencement/webcasts.
When you check in, you will receive a Photo/Name Card to complete. You must complete BOTH sides of this card and KEEP IT until you cross the stage during the ceremony. This card has several important purposes: 1) Your name will be read from this card when you cross the stage. 2) The photo company, GradIMAGES, will email you with proofs of your graduation photos so you can order them online. A current email must be on the card. 3) The SOJ will also use the contact information on the card to send you your first SOJ alumni magazine later in the summer.
The ceremony is expected to last approximately 90 minutes and will be followed by light refreshments in the main lobby of the Creative Arts Center.
Parking: Parking will be available in the Creative Arts Center parking lots. Officials will be present to direct traffic.
Diplomas: In 2012, the University made a change in protocol as to how diplomas are distributed. In the recent past, diplomas were presented to students as they walked across the stage. Beginning in 2012, diplomas are mailed to graduates within three weeks of the graduation ceremony. Graduates will, however, receive a commemorative diploma cover, featuring the seal of the University, as they cross the stage.

Martin Hall Agency, a student-run agency at West Virginia University, has planned a concert, zumbathon, and guest speaker event to educate and inform their campus and local community on the positive impact of new technologies and practices in shale gas development and the benefits of natural gas as an energy source. The campaign is designed to raise awareness that America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) and the natural gas community are dedicated to the safe and responsible development of this clean, affordable and domestic energy source for power generation and transportation.
Through these efforts, students will have the opportunity to attend three exciting events for free and have the chance to learn more about natural gas and its benefits. MHA’s kick-off concert will take place on April 10th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. in the Mountainlair with the band “Black Action Cop” on stage at the famous student hangout, Side Pocket. Students can also play pool and enjoy great food and beverages while listening to the band on stage. The band will speak about the opportunities and benefits of natural gas in between songs; fact cards on natural gas will also be distributed throughout the concert.
The zumbathon will take place on Saturday, April 13th from 1:00-3:00 p.m. in the blue and gold room at Towers dorm on the Evansdale campus. In between dances, there will be trivia about natural gas and participants will have the opportunity to win gift cards, gift bags, and other prizes. Refreshments will also be provided for the participants.
The closing event for the campaign will be a natural gas speaker event. MariBeth Anderson, director of corporate development with Chesapeake Energy and a West Virginia representative for ANGA, will speak to students about the opportunities and benefits of natural gas on April 15th from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in Ming Hsieh Hall on WVU’s downtown campus.
The campaign is the culmination of a program Martin Hall Agency students have been participating in this term through the ANGA Collegiate Energy Challenge, which is designed to give students unique, real-world business experience creating a marketing campaign for a national organization. “Working on the ANGA Collegiate Energy Challenge has given me valuable real-world experience that I can apply once I graduate. I’ve also learned a lot about natural gas during my experience,” said Gordon Claggett, the head of the Campaign and Strategies Department.
Participating schools from across the country are competing for the opportunity to present their campaign ideas to industry experts as part of the Scholastic Achievement Award competition. Three student teams will be invited to present their campaigns in Washington, D.C. and will have the opportunity to win cash awards for their school.
“I’m very happy and excited to have the opportunity to participate in the ANGA Collegiate Energy Challenge because it has allowed me be creative and design advertisements for different events,” said Jenna Britton, a member of the advertising department.
Watch for more information about the ANGA Collegiate Energy Challenge at WVU throughout this spring term. For further inquiries regarding the WVU project, please contact Lindsey Lambert, the PR department head, at (304) 888-3516.
