Parkersburg, W.Va. (June 25, 2024) — WVU Parkersburg will host a Food Truck Recruitment Festival and a FAFSA workshop at the Jackson County Center on June 28, from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

“I think the event is important for future students to attend so they can see the great programs we have to offer and to meet representatives from the programs of interest. Students will also get the chance to meet representatives from the financial aid department, admissions, Early College and meet our Student Government Association (SGA) officers,” said Nicole Shutts, Admissions and Recruitment coordinator. “We are also holding a FAFSA workshop during the event for future students and the community to attend to get help with their FAFSA. We look forward to seeing everyone there and we hope this is a successful event so that we can continue to do it!”

The FAFSA workshop is open to all students regardless of intended college choice. For help with filing a FAFSA, students will need to know their address, phone number, social security number and income tax information.
