The College of Liberal Arts (CoLA) has many changes and upcoming events for the 2016-17 school year at West Liberty University.

This past May, the college put on their first A Taste of CoLA event. 33 juniors from John Marshall High School participated in it. The event featured six different programs that represented different degree options within the college. The students could select four out of six topics to attend. It was a huge success, and the college is planning on a second event for May of 2017.
