Rayla Claypool

Adventure Leader

Hi, my real name isn’t Rayla (it’s a nickname that stuck), and I love being a Mountaineer! When I settled in to my first semester at WVU, I instantly fell in love with the school and the state of West Virginia. WVU feels just as much like home as Pittsburgh does now.

I’m an RA in Stalnaker Hall where I live with my pet betta, Jack. He sits on my desk and keeps me company. When I’m not feeding Jack or wading through schoolwork, I like to be out in the woods, hiking around or just relaxing in my hammock. If I’m not doing that, I’m probably hanging out in the campus radio station or the Hillel House.

Passions of mine include storytelling, photography, drinking probably too much coffee, string lights, and yelling loudly during WVU football and basketball games.
