tHE CALL-TO-ACTION

tHE wvu black alumni  UNITY FUND

Most Alumni have one thing in common: the pride we take in what student organizations and clubs we joined during our time at West Virginia University. Some of us joined Divine Nine organizations. Some of us marched the streets of Morgantown with the Black Student Union and WVU NAACP. Some sang songs of unity at events, and some were involved in numerous organizations. No matter what Black student organization you joined, you know how impactful it was on your time in Morgantown.


Now is our time to give back! As the Black community at WVU, our current, Black student organizations are small but mighty! The Black Alumni Association, with your help, would like to give each active, Black student organization on campus explicitly dedicated to the advancement of Black students a donation that could help them with programming, professional development, or operating expenses. NOW IS OUR TIME!

Q&a

Can I purchase my Black Alumni Weekend ticket and Gold and Blue Game ticket on EventBrite?

  • No. The Gold and Blue Game tickets are sold through WVU Athletics for $10 each. Click here to purchase.

I'm not sure if I can make it down for the weekend event, can I purchase my ticket at the door?

  • Yes! You will be able to purchase tickets at the door. However, after April 14th, ticket pricing will increase by $5-$10.

When is the last day to purchase a ticket for the event (not referring to the early bird ticket)?

  • The last day to purchase tickets at normal pricing will be April 14th. After this date, ticket prices will increase by $5-$10. You will be able to purchase most tickets at the door/ check-in.

Is there a refund if I can't make the event?

  • No refunds will be given. However, you can transfer your ticket to someone else using Eventbrite.

If multiple early bird tickets are purchased in the same transaction, does the "promo code" automatically discount each ticket?

  • Yes. Using the temporary promo code that expires on March 27, the $10 discount will apply to each of the "ALL ACCESS" tickets you purchase.

Our COVID-19 Safety Procedures

Our best defense against COVID-19 is for everyone to stay optimally protected against COVID-19 by getting their primary vaccine series and staying up to date with a booster dose.

During the weekend, we will strongly encourage everyone to follow the CDC recommendations of wearing a mask regardless of vaccination status. Vaccines are not required.

Where required, masks must be worn properly above the nose.
