Meet the grads

Meet the Grads: Madison Riffe 
Students from the Eberly College of Arts and Sciences will walk across the stage on Sunday, May 12 as they graduate from West Virginia University, ready to take on the world. 

As Commencement is upon us, several of our Eberly College graduates reflect on their time at WVU and their plans for the future.

Madison Riffe, a Charleston, West Virginia, native, is a  biology major and psychology minor.  Madison Riffe

Through her research capstone, Riffe has discovered her passion for neuroscience. This fall, she plans to begin a Doctor of Philosophy in neuroscience and behavior.

“I’m looking forward to growing as a researcher and a student during my time in graduate school,” she said.

To Riffe, WVU offers welcoming atmosphere that helped her grow as a student while still providing the tools she needed to succeed. 

“WVU has all of the resources of a large university,” she said. “However, I’ve always felt like I was valued as an individual and as a student here in a way that you wouldn’t expect at a massive university.”
