Exploring Our Past

These stories offer but a glimpse of the rich and colorful history of West Virginia State University. We invite you to read the epic love story that tells the tale of how the community of Institute, where WVSU is located, came to be named. We encourage you to explore the part that the University played in training the Tuskegee Airmen who fought so bravely for our freedoms in World War II. These are but a few of the chapters in the more than 110-year-old history of the University, and they surely won't be the last.
