Thursday, January 9th, 2014

The Office of Admission at West Virginia Wesleyan College, in conjunction with the Department of Athletics, will be hosting its fourth annual Bobcat Prospective Athlete Day on January 18 on the Buckhannon campus.

The College would like to invite all students interested in playing NCAA Division II varsity athletics to attend the event.  Coaches and representatives from all 20 varsity programs will be available to speak with students and their families about what it is like to be a Bobcat student-athlete at West Virginia Wesleyan.

The event will begin at 9:00 a.m. with the check-in at the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts and will include presentations by both the Office of Admission and the Athletic Department, sessions with individual team coaches, an Academic Department Fair, and a tour of campus.

“This is a very exciting day on-campus that was designed to give student-athletes the opportunity to see what being a Bobcat is all about,” stated John Waltz, director of Admission.  “Our student-athletes excel in both athletic and academic arenas, and we wanted to give the best picture of that life to high school seniors.”

Interested students can sign up online at or by contacting the Office of Admission directly at 800.922.7733.
