First impressions matter.
The members of the Tech Golden Bear Alumni Association (TGBAA) want to ensure that students, alumni and visitors to West Virginia University Institute of Technology develop the right impression when they arrive in Montgomery.
That’s why the Tech Golden Bear Alumni Association has launched its inaugural fundraising and beautification project for WVU Tech. A welcome wall has been erected at the former site of the Co-Ed residence hall. The wall clearly marks the entrance to the Tech campus and welcomes visitors as they cross the bridge into Montgomery.
You can preserve your memories and leave a legacy for future generations at Tech by purchasing a 4×8 paver to be placed on the back of the new welcome wall. For $100, you can purchase a paver and have it engraved with your message.
