West Virginia University students will be returning to Morgantown this week.

Residence hall move-in started Thursday and runs through Saturday.

The return of FallFest highlights Welcome Week which also began Thursday, and continues through the Wednesday.

New events include a pool party for all students at the Student Recreation Center on Saturday and a service project to benefit the West Virginia United Way Collaborative during Monday Night Lights for first-year students Monday at Milan Puskar Stadium.

For the first time since 2019, FallFest will be held on the Evansdale Recreation Fields Tuesday. Details on FallFest acts are scheduled to be announced today.
