That is very impressive. Especially considering the demographics of our small state.

There was something like $20 million donated in December alone. Alumni support is very strong at WVU, and they are working on ways to make it stronger still with a special hotel tied into the Alumni Center and organized activities for various groups on an ongoing basis such as you find at many other national universities. A lot of that money is not just coming from folks in our small state. There are alums all over the country and the world who participate now, and Big XII membership is opening up new opportunities for graduates and alumni.
