More students are choosing to go to West Virginia State University in Institute, WV to get their degree.
Classes started this week. On Wednesday, the campus was buzzing with students.
WVSU Vice President for University Relations & Operations Kimberly Osborne said the last two years have brought a jump in enrollment.
They've added new dorms and athletic facilities. They also have classes that focus more on the jobs available locally.
"It is great to know that the school is investing in us," said senior Alana Weyant.
The university's marching band was out on campus Tuesday practicing for a celebration scheduled for Thursday to welcoming students for the fall semester.
The final enrollment numbers for this fall semester won't be released until September.
