In light of the lessening of restrictions on travel announced by the governor of Virginia, VWU will again be open for campus visits as of June 10, 2020. We recognize, however, that many people may still prefer to take advantage of virtual opportunities to learn more about the Batten Honors College. Therefore, we invite you to participate in a BHC Virtual Information Session. For more information, click here.
