Student Life

Your home away from home.

Involvement on campus is a hallmark of our student body. You could be a member of our Student Government Association, be involved in the Black Student Union, be a Resident Assistant or participate in one of our many other clubs and organizations.  Whatever it is that interests you, you’ll find an outlet on our campus and if you don’t, you have the ability to create it!

Weekends at Wheeling University are full of excitement. The Ratt, our on-campus pub, hosts local bands, along with theme nights throughout the year. Our Campus Activities Board plans weekends year-round for students, including the annual Last Blast weekend, complete with inflatables, obstacle courses, a dance, concerts and a highly competitive raft race down Wheeling Creek.

If you’re looking for a great workout, the McDonough Center isn’t just a place for varsity athletes; it’s a resource for all students. Consider it your own 107,000 square-foot health club. You can run laps on the indoor and outdoor tracks, play racquetball, pump iron, get in some cardio at the fitness center, swim laps in the pool or shoot hoops in the gym. Many activities are offered to ensure your body is as healthy as your mind.
