New Student Convocation is an important event that marks the official welcome to the university. We are excited to congratulate and celebrate the arrival of WCU's new students with an event they will not forget.
The regular quarterly meeting of the Board of Trustees of Western Carolina University will be held on Friday, Sept. 3, at 9:30 a.m.
WCU will celebrate its Class of 2020 through a series of live events – including fireworks – for those alumni whose senior year was largely virtual and anything but normal.
Kae Livsey with the School of Nursing has been named to the National Advisory Council on Nurse Education and Practice.
The art of project management is something that Western Carolina University alum Joseph Foxx learned quickly. The 35-year-old technical support engineer is the father of a 15-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son who worked full time at a manufacturing company in Fletcher. He did all of that while driving back and forth from the Asheville area to Cullowhee to take engineering classes.
The Department of Chemistry and Physics will host a viewing of the Perseid meteor shower from 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11, through sunrise on Thursday, Aug.12, at Waterrock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
When Mountain Heritage Day makes a triumphant return to campus on Saturday, Sept. 25, it will come with a full day of live music.
The next time a student claims he or she will never use the math they’re struggling with in school, have them talk to Western Carolina University alumnus Thomas Farrell, a laser process engineer who works on commercial aircraft engines at GE Aviation Asheville.
When WCU alumnus Matthew McDonough starts his third year of graduate school at the University of Chicago this fall, he’ll do so as a member of a select group.
