Waynesburg University recently created an affiliation agreement with the West Virginia University (WVU) School of Medicine with the goal of enhancing placement opportunities for Waynesburg graduates.

According to Dr. Jacquelyn Core, provost and vice president for Academic Affairs at Waynesburg University, the main benefit to participating in these agreements is the opportunity to make early connections between the students and the people who may ultimately make the final decision on their admission status into a graduate program. 

Participating students will be matched with a faculty mentor from the WVU School of Medicine to help them navigate and prepare for the application process and a future in medicine. Participating students are also guaranteed an interview during the admissions process, as long as they maintain a specified GPA and receive satisfactory MCAT or GRE scores. 

“The interview is everything,” said Core. “There will be lots of qualified applicants, but if you cannot get the interview, there is no way to advance, so the guaranteed interview is a really big deal.” 

Core added that the University has connected with additional schools with graduate-level engineering, law, physical therapy, occupational therapy and physician assistant programs to establish similar agreements. She hopes agreements with these programs will come into fruition soon.

Waynesburg University will present “Relationships: An Evening of Short Plays about Love and Romance,” Friday, July 31, and Saturday, Aug. 1, at 7:30 p.m. in the Goodwin Performing Arts Center (GPAC) on the Waynesburg University campus. Admission is $5 per person, and the public is cordially invited to attend. 

“The GPAC will be alive with humorous and touching plays about falling in love, proposing marriage, finding new relationships and the pitfalls that come with these scenarios,” said Edward L. Powers, director of the theater program and professor of theater at Waynesburg University. 

Waynesburg University alumni, current students and community members will come together to perform the short plays. The production will include two shows, “The Kentucky Marriage Proposal” by Alice H. Houstle and “The Dancers” by Horton Foote, in addition to several two- and three- person scenes.

“We're excited to have familiar faces from the community returning to our stage, but equally as excited about so many area high school students who are new to our Waynesburg University theater program.”

Tickets will be available at the door.  For more information, contact Powers at 724-852-3226.
