In addition to the assigned instructor, each course will have a student success
coach who will work with students on time management, note-taking and study
skills. Coaches assist students with the transition from high school to WVU
by answering questions and providing information on campus resources. They
can also arrange tutoring sessions, depending on the course, for students
who request additional help.
WVU knows what students learn outside the classroom is just as important as
what they learn during class. Project 168 formally recognizes the way students
spend the 168 hours they have each week matters, and that after going to
class (of course), eating and sleeping – they are leading, competing, serving
Students will receive credit for their co-curricular experiences and can leverage
them as part of a successful future search for a job or internship or a grad
school application. Students will learn new things about themselves and their
community – and stretch their horizons, too. When students have completed
the Project 168 curriculum, they will have a co-curricular transcript on
official WVU transcript paper.
And as a Summer Bridge participant, students can get a head start on completing
the curriculum with the projects and experiences they'll have, even before
