Located in the College Union Office, the mailroom is where all residential students, faculty and staff receive their mail and parcels. USPS, FedEx, and UPS deliver daily; this mail is then logged and sorted into appropriate mailboxes. All residential students are assigned a mailbox number after they are given their housing assignment. This box number will remain theirs until they graduate, or decide to move off campus (students living off campus do not have a box number in the mailroom). It is essential that students check their mailbox periodically, as they may receive important campus mail from departments such as Financial Aid, the Registrar’s Office, the Library, etc.

West Liberty University believes in the importance of co-curricular involvement in activities as a valuable supplement to classroom learning and the University experience. The College Union Office serves as a coordination center on campus and works with student organizations in planning their activities and projects. A club and organization fair is held at the start of the fall semester to increase awareness and encourage participation of existing groups.
Students may complement their academic experiences by becoming involved with many clubs and organizations. The Director of the Union and Campus Life and the Student Activities Coordinator assist student groups in scheduling movies, entertainers, trips, and a wide variety of other events. The diverse range of activities is intended to have something for everyone. It is necessary for each club and organization to register in the College Union Office annually and provide the name of an advisor with a current list of members.
Greek Life: Greek organizations benefit the campus community by providing support systems, promoting philanthropic activities, and developing healthy social experiences. Greek Week is held in the spring semester and involves a week-long celebration of friendly competition between sororities and fraternities. Recruitment for Greek Life takes place in the fall semester. A Greek Council governs all social sororities and fraternities and works with the Director of the Union and Campus Life to develop leadership skills and plan events for Greek organizations.
Hazing is not tolerated at West Liberty University. Any individual or Greek organization involved in hazing will be subject to sanctions through the judicial process. Hazing is a term encompassing any action which inflicts or intends to cause physical or mental harm or anxieties; which may demean, degrade, or disgrace any person, regardless of location, intent or consent of participants. Hazing can also be defined as any action or situation which intentionally or unintentionally endangers a student for admission into or affiliation with any student organization.
Student Activities Board: The purpose of the Student Activities Board is to provide a variety of activities for the entertainment and enrichment of the student body and to encourage active participation in campus activities. The Student Activities Board works with the Student Activities Coordinator to provide a range of activities for all students to enhance their university experience.
