Mountaineer Meet Up for Grad Students: Get Out of the Lab
Get Out of the Lab is the Mountaineer Meet Up specifically tailored to grad students (though all meet-ups are open to grad students).
We know it can be hard as a graduate or professional student to build community outside of your lab, classroom or assistantship. This meet-up can help connect you to other that feel the same way!

This meet-up allows Mountaineers to learn about well-being and engage with others while participating in exciting adventure activities. We’ll paddle in September, ride bikes along the river in October, and climb at WVU’s climbing wall in November! All programs are beginner-friendly (if cycling, you will need to know how to ride a bike). We’re down-to-earth and approachable, and we invite you to come as you are – we can’t wait to meet you!
