Drain-Jordan Library Archives Department - WVSU Commencement Programs, West Virginia State University
library building, angled front view

The Commencement Program digital collection contains digitized copies of the West Virginia State University commencement proceedings. The programs include, but are not limited to, names of the graduates, the degrees earned, guest speakers, and other information relevant to the preservation of West Virginia State University's history. The Archives & Special Collections Department of the Drain-Jordan Library houses the university commencement programs ranging in date from 1909 to the present. Due to binding constraints, the fragile nature of some programs and gaps in the collection, all of the programs are not included in this digital collection. If you are interested in a particular commencement ceremony program that is not available below, please contact the Archives Department and we will attempt to locate your desired information.

Note: The programs are in PDF format; most are only a few pages. The following table displays Commencement Program covers with the date below in each cell. When you hover over the cover/date there is a color change to the date. By clicking on the cover or the date, you download and open a pdf of that particular program. (March 2019)
