WVU Austin Alumni Committees

We are always looking to add new members to our committees. If you are interested in joining any of these committees, please contact us at [email protected].


Bring new fundraising ideas to the board and lead the chapter’s fundraising efforts, including our Touchdown Challenge and the WVU Austin Alumni Scholarship Fund. This past year, our chapter distributed $1,180 to charitable causes, led an effort to send 2,000 pair of children’s socks to the WVU Children’s Hospital and added $300 to our scholarship fund.

Social Committee

Organize game watches, happy hours, trips to WVU games in Texas and planning our first annual Summer Shindig. Committee members can choose which social events you want to help organize, you do not have to get involved with all of them.

Family Events
