FIS Adventure

Get to know other FIS students before your first college semester even begins! Adventure WV is WVU's optional outdoor orientation program. Taking place the summer before your freshman year, experience the beauty of your new home as you travel throughout West Virginia for a week of rock climbing, whitewater rafting, ropes courses and team-building activities.

Leading the Way

With a new Ph.D. program in forensic science effective July 1, 2016, WVU becomes the only institution in the country to offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in forensic science.


Our #studentsFIRST program is designed to help our first and second year students become successful in their transition to college.

As students are formally admitted to the major for their junior year, we change the emphasis of their last two years to a focus on preparation for graduate school or a career.
