  • Guides will be available at each of these intersections to advise drivers for direction, safety.

John Bohman, Director of Greek Life & Supervisor, Campus Safety & Security, will be leading 80 fraternity and sorority members as they welcome more than 340 new students (and their families) to campus and assist with traffic control with the help of the Buckhannon Volunteers in Police Service (VIPS), the Buckhannon Police Department, and Buckhannon Streets and Parks Department.
