Dear Friends,

Welcome to West Virginia University Potomac State College. Whether you’re a current student, a prospective student, a curious parent, or simply want to explore everything our vibrant campus has to offer, I want to extend a warm greeting to you.

At WVU Potomac State College, education is not confined to learning in the classroom; internships and experiential education prepare students for careers in their chosen fields. Global learning opportunities and our unwavering commitment to excellence assists students as they embark on their own transformative journey.

Our holistic approach not only equips graduates with knowledge and skills, but also stimulates the mind and inspires creativity and critical thinking. Students become well-rounded individuals who are socially conscious and academically prepared to thrive in an ever-changing world.

Your college journey also involves the community around you. Whether volunteering at a local food bank or hospital, exploring nearby ski resorts, kayaking, or hiking and biking trails, our location in the scenic Potomac Highlands of West Virginia, has many opportunities to enjoy beyond our campus borders.

As you explore our website and learn more about what Potomac State College has to offer, I know you will discover a smaller institution that benefits from being part of the West Virginia University system. Our students enjoy the smaller campus atmosphere in a beautiful and idyllic setting. Our students also enjoy the benefits of being part of a larger university system. 

I know you’ll discover the enriching diversity and possibilities that await you, because college isn’t just about book learning, it’s about learning who you are meant to be.

I look forward to seeing you on campus!

Paul Kreider

Interim Campus President - WVU Potomac State College
