Golden retriever Ginger is one of four #WVU Police dogs sniffing around campus to keep it safe. She's got quite a nose -- she can detect approximately 19,000 different explosive combinations and can be seen working sporting events and concerts. Dig around for more on WVU's campus canines at our profile link. #k9 #goldenretriever

'Blacks only'. 'Whites only.' This was the world Dana Brooks grew up in. Yet there was one bridge that brought all sides together: sports. As the dean of @wvucpass, Brooks has carried profound experiences from both sides of the fence -- segregation and integration -- throughout his career at #WVU. Learn more about Brooks in our profile link. #blackhistorymonth #sportscience
The heart of this #WVU cardiologist beats year-round, not just on Valentine's Day, for young patients afflicted with heart problems. Dr. Larry Rhodes helped create a summer camp in Ripley, W.Va. more than 20 years ago for children with congenital #heart disease. From our archives, you can learn more about Rhodes and his heart 💛💙 to serve in our profile link. @wvumedicine @wvumedicinechildrens
#TBT and a big gold-and-blue congrats to @elainemsheldon for her #Oscar nomination for “Heroin(e),” a #documentary that follows three women fighting the #opioid epidemic in Huntington, W.Va. Sheldon is a 2009 #WVU #journalism grad. Here, in a photo taken that year, she hones her storytelling craft in John Temple’s WVUncovered class. To read a 2012 story from our archives on Sheldon and one of her first documentaries, “Hollow,” visit our profile link. 💛💙🎬
Nearly a year ago, WVU's own Piano Man gave his final faculty performance before retiring. For 55 years, James Miltenberger taught #piano at #WVU. For some alumni, he was the newest member of the music faculty, not much older than they were. And for others, he was one of the most experienced professors with the most stories to tell about #music at WVU. 🎹 @wvucca
The machines are controlled by us. Saiph Savage, director of the Human Computer Interaction Laboratory at #WVU, is noted for her work in machine learning and human #computer interaction. Find out more in our next issue of @wvumagazine, out this spring.
#FBF to the signatures, scribbles and drawings etched onto the walls of the small cupola room in Woodburn Hall. Generations of #WVU students, dating back to the 1800s, have left their mark in the dusty, hidden room overlooking the Monongahela River. Read up on it at our profile link.
Jack Hodge became the first black student to graduate from #WVU and it happened the same year (1954) as the Brown v. Board ruling. Here he conducts an interview for the @dailyathenaeum en route to earning his #journalism degree. Hodge went on to a successful career as a newsman and taught at @howard1867. In honor of #MLK Day, read about Hodge and other barrier breakers at WVU in our profile link.
Did you dig the first season of our Sparked #podcast? Season 2 will be delivered to your ears this spring. Here producer Diana Mazzella interviews Madison Riffe at Kenna Elementary School. There Riffe, a biology junior at #WVU, is an ambassador with the WV Science Public Outreach Team. It's a program of @NASA and the Green Bank Observatory that sends college students into classrooms to spread the gospel of #science and get youngsters thinking about science careers.
.@wvuhoops is No. 2! (For added fun, here's a photo from them beating Pitt a few weeks ago. That's always a joy.) #hailwv #WVU
2017 was a big year for #WVU alumna Brittany Furbee (featured in our current Matter of Fact section at our profile link). She fooled top chefs on Food Network’s “Cooks vs. Cons” that she was a professional cook. And in November, she placed ninth in the 2017 World Food Championships. Here she shows off a mouthwatering dish from the competition of chorizo stuffed chicken with cilantro risotto and pickled corn relish. Maybe we can hit her up for leftovers from the holidays? @bfurb @wvustatler #food #foodstagram
Our #bestnine2017 takes us through outer space, Woodburn Hall and Antarctica. Thank you for supporting #WVU Magazine, and Happy New Year! We can't wait to see where 2018 takes us. #instawvu
Joanne Hyder, BS '77, capped off a personal goal in 2017 by visiting all seven continents, including here in Antarctica, where the Flying WV became the Frozen WV. ❄ #instawvu #wvu #antarctica #2017 @wvualumniassoc

Congrats to our newest #WVU alumni -- the more than 2,800 graduating today at December commencement. It’s also a good time to express yourself. 😁
Before 2006, #WVU had zero #Chinese language or culture courses. Along came Hannah Lin to change that. Read more in our profile link.
