In September 2013, my friends and I traveled back to our alma mater to hold a memorial service for our friend and fellow graduate. We took some time to tour the campus. It’s a small state college that I graduated from and worked at for four years. The University of Virginia’s College at Wise in Wise, Virginia. Beautiful mountain community in the Coalfields of Virginia. Also known as the “Appalachian mountains”. The college was founded in 1954. The land used to be a “poor farm”. This is one of two original (albeit, renovated) buildings from the days of the poor farm. This building used to serve as a dormitory but is now a visitors center (I think).
