Are there any HBCUs in West Virginia ?

I'm a junior feeling a bit stressed because I can't seem to find HBCU colleges in West Virginia. Does anyone know if there are any, and if so, could you share some details about them?

It's understandable to feel a bit stressed when you can't find the information you're looking for, especially with something as important as college choices!

There is actually one HBCU (Historically Black College or University) in West Virginia, and it's called West Virginia State University (WVSU). Located in Institute, West Virginia, just a few miles from the state capital, Charleston, WVSU was founded in 1891 and offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs. It's known for having strong programs in business, social sciences, and its college of natural sciences and mathematics. As a land-grant university, it also has a strong focus on research, community service, and providing educational opportunities to traditionally underrepresented groups. The university is smaller in size than some other institutions, which can provide a more personal college experience.

I encourage you to visit their website or reach out to their admissions office for more information and to see if they offer programs that align with your interests. Best of luck on your journey; remember that you're taking great steps just by gathering all the necessary information!
