Experience Life in the Greenbrier Valley

"Having previously worked in New York City, I am beyond thrilled that the experiences I make in a rural environment will contribute to me being a more open-minded and well-rounded future physician. I feel privileged to study at an institution comprised of such diverse, talented and driven individuals who have a passion to serve. Without a doubt, I was meant to be at WVSOM."

- Kristina Lim

      The Lewisburg arts scene comes alive with music, poetry readings, book festivals, and performances at our very own Carnegie Hall. Need more? The delicious delicacies of the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival and the savory delights offered at the Taste of our Town are just a few of the featured attractions in the town known as the "Paris of West Virginia."
The parade field of the old Greenbrier Military School is where WVSOM students, faculty and staff go to play. Flag football, the President's Annual Softball game, and spontaneous bouts of freestyle frisbee call the parade field home.       Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured. Do what makes you happy, be with who makes you smile, laugh as much as you breathe, and love as long as you live. Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight. Don't ask yourself what the world needs; ask yourself what makes you come alive.
