Virginia Western Community College is proactively taking steps to ensure the health and well-being of our students, employees and members of the community in light of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus). As advised by the Virginia Department of Health and Governor Ralph Northam, the college is limiting public gatherings and large events.

Virginia Western is canceling or postponing all current large events (30+ people anticipated) scheduled through April 5, 2020 outside of regular academic class functions. The Virginia Western Educational Foundation’s Scholarship Awards Ceremony scheduled for March 25 is cancelled, along with Free Movie Friday Events, intramurals and recreation activities and guest speakers.  

The college will provide updates on its website, social media and through the media when public events are allowed on campus again.
