BUCKHANNON, WV: Saturday, August 24, is new student move-in day at West Virginia Wesleyan (WVWC) College. The City is working with the college to reduce traffic congestion on the streets that surround campus. Traffic patterns will be temporarily adjusted as follows:

  • Two guides will be available at the corner of Main Street and College Avenue.
  • After unloading, students and parent guests will be advised to park behind Camden Apartments for the day.

John Bohman, Director of Greek Life, will be leading 150 fraternity and sorority members as they welcome new students and their families 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.
