Portrait of Maxwell Shavers

The WVU Experience

Maxwell Shavers
Digital Marketing Communications

"I love WVU because of the people I met. So many people cared for me and didn't even know me. I met people from different countries, religions and backgrounds, and I learned from all of them.

"I also love how WVU has an urban, bustling college with easy access to the wilderness and other cities."
