GLENVILLE, W.Va. – On Thursday, January 6, Glenville State College President Dr. Mark A. Manchin welcomed faculty and staff back to campus for the start of the spring semester.

“We are looking forward to a great spring semester here at Glenville State,” Manchin said. “This year is our 150th anniversary and we are so excited to mark that milestone with all the members of our campus community – students, faculty, staff, alumni, the community, and our friends.”
Faculty members had time to attend workshops on Brightspace, the College’s learning management system, and DegreeWorks, the web-based degree monitoring system for students, in addition to various departmental meetings and other training sessions. Staff also had informational and training sessions scheduled.
