Did you know: WVU has a museum that focuses on fixtures and supplies collected from West Virginia drugstores dating all the way back to the 1800s. It’s called the Cook-Hayman Pharmacy Museum, and here’s a look at some of what’s featured there. http://wvumag.wvu.edu/departments/staff-picks/spring-2015

“Being a hard worker, being honest, really caring about people and animals and trying to help them … those were the things I took away from those 18 years living at home in Roane County.” That’s what West Virginia means to Rustin Moore, a 1986 WVU graduate who helped save hundreds of horses following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Read more about Moore in this story from the latest WV

Take a look back at a busy spring sports season in the latest edition of the WVU Magazine. We’ve got everything from a 5-year-old’s dream come true to ANOTHER rifle national title (did someone say dynasty?). What was your favorite sports moment from the spring? 
This season we welcomed 5-year-old basketball player Nicholas Wince, said goodbye to legend Hot Rod Hundley and bagged a few championships.

We followed Saira Blair, WVU student and the youngest legislator in the country, around for a day in February. Check it out.
Some days she’s in class at WVU. On other days she’s in her office as the nation’s youngest legislator.

Congratulations to these 16 WVU students who competed in the NASA Centennial Challenge earlier this week. They return to Morgantown with the first level two victory in the competition’s four-year history and a $100,000 award ... yep, $100,000! Great job representing WVU!
A team of 16 West Virginia University engineering students proved this week that a robot can live up to its name.
