On Feb. 7, 1867, the West Virginia Legislature created the Agricultural College of West Virginia – what we know and love today as West Virginia University.

To commemorate WVU's birthday, President Gordon Gee treated thousands to a surprise during halftime of the men’s basketball game today at the Coliseum.

For 25 seasons, WVU grads Harry and Linda Grandon have held the same tailgating spot in front of Milan Puskar Stadium. They decked out their 1977-model Volkswagen van in Mountaineer gold and blue, and of course some “Beat Pitt” decals.

See how Mountaineers everywhere share their spirit in the latest issue of the WVU Magazine: http://go.wvu.edu/1GzIKGj
