Firstly, here is the 2012 WVGSA Handbook. Yes, it’s long, wordy, and full of rules, but reading it will give you a really good idea of what a typical day at GSA is like, as well as answer some of the burning questions that I know you have (Can I bring my iPhone? Can I bring my laptop? What size bedding do I need?) We will also be distributing the handbook in hard-copy form at the Orientation on July 1, but it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with it before you arrive.
The campus of Davis & Elkins College is easy to navigate, and we will have plenty of signs out to direct traffic when you arrive on July 1, but this campus map will help if you get lost or are looking for the closest parking lot to a particular destination.
There are several places to access important information about the 2012 WVGSA on the web. The Official Website for the West Virginia Governor’s School for the Arts is a good place to start for basic information on the program.
The Davis & Elkins College website has a great series of pages about GSA, including a greeting from Tom Hackman, the Dean of the 2012 WVGSA, and pictures and bios of GSA Faculty and Staff.
During the program, there are a few ways that your family and friends can keep tabs on what’s going on at the GSA. We post daily pictures, videos, and updates on our Facebook Page and here on our WordPress Blog to keep everyone in the loop. If you are on Facebook, go ahead and “like” our page to start connecting with your GSA Classmates!
If you need any more information, or have any questions, don’t hesitate to call (304-637-1212) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) me and I will be happy to do what I can to help out. We are looking forward to your arrival on campus!
