WVU Tech produces the best engineering students in this state. Yes, they do need better buildings, but what goes on in those class rooms is more important than what the buildings look like. Let us all support this fine institution and not speak harshly - this state and it's people should be proud of WVU Tech.
In all due respect, agree. The entity that needs to hear AND understand the proud version of Tech is WVU. WVU has treated Tech harshy for far TOO long. The state and its people already are aware of the engineering force that Tech has played in the overall economy of this state, and, in many instances, the nation. Presently, that force is in question.
That's the purpose of the independent revitalization bill. Will WVU oblige?
If so, when? The bill has been in waiting for two years. Two more years of waiting for an institution that has waited 17 years.

Does Ms. Long actually live in the Presidents house? There are never any lights on in that house after dark. Is she another Bayless? Living outside of Montgomery. If she doesn't live here, how can she expect her students to live and attend school in Montgomery?

Tech's days are over, sadly to say. Enrollment will not increase, nor will their revenue. All compliments of WVU.

Too bad that taxpayers in this area have to endure and continue to finance another WVU appointed leader on the Montgomery campus. If Long didn't have WVU connections, there wouldn't be the slightest chance in _______ that she would be in command of OUR institution.

Those WVU connections (political) have failed to obtain one penny through the legislature.

Where's the beef?

Support Tech independence from WVU publicly, or vacate the office!
