The WVU Mountaineer Parents Club was created in 1995 as one of five student life initiatives of former WVU President David C. Hardesty Jr. The organization, which has more than 20,000 members, was established to foster success by connecting parents and family members with the West Virginia University student experience.

West Virginia University’s Mountaineer Parents Club is free and open to parents and family members of current, former and future WVU students. To join just sign-up online.

The Jersey Shore WVU Mountaineer Parents Club was established ​in 2014 through the help and guidance of the Southern NJ Parents Club.  It is our mission to connect families with the West Virginia University student experience through our annual Summer Send Off event, Facebook page, and this website page.  We understand that this is a new and exciting stage in your families' lives and it is our hope that we can quell some of the fear and anxiety that you or your student may have as they embark on this new adventure.  We will provide tips, tricks and information that we hope will make the transition easier for the whole family.  In conjunction with the Southern NJ and Delaware Parents Clubs we offer round-trip bus service to get students to and from WVU at a reasonable cost for breaks.

These will be the same pickup and drop off location on the return trip back to WVU.


The two WVU locations are Stalnaker Hall (Maiden Lane) located on the Downtown campus and Lincoln Hall (Rawley Ave) located on the Evansdale campus. The Delaware location is the Delaware Rest Stop on I-95 (Newark, DE) and three NJ locations are at the Cherry Hill Train Station (2240 NJ-70, Cherry Hill, NJ) in Lot 1 next to the ShopRite on Route 70 in Cherry Hill, NJ; the NJ Transit / Amtrak Hamilton Train Station (800 Sloan Avenue - Exit 65B off I-295) in Hamilton, NJ and the Garden State Parkway Monmouth Rest Stop at MP 100 in Wall, NJ.
