Greetings from the President

Dr. Greg Weisenstein

New and returning students, welcome to another great year at West Chester University! WCU offers limitless opportunities for developing your talents, advancing your goals, building lifelong friendships, and applying classroom lessons on campus, in the community, and around the world.

As the Ram's Eye View shows, your university is commited to your success. Our campus community provides comprehensive support to help you meet your highest ambitions, here and throughout your future. If you find yourself confronting an academic or personal challenge, this student handbook can point you toward the right assistance and services. The handbook also shows the impressive range of co-curricular programs available to complement your academic curriculum and enhance your personal growth.

I encourage you to use the Ram's Eye View as a guide to campus involvement. Studies show that active students-whether in student government, music ensembles, athletics, academic clubs, theatre and dance, or volunteer service-are more likely than less-engaged students to do well academically, find their university year satisfying, and go on to graduate. WCU has student organizations to match virtually every interest. The Ram's Eye View will help you find the activities that are ideal for you. In addition to introducing you to campus life, it will acquaint you with important University policies, and familiarize you with our surrounding community.

Best wishes for the semesters ahead-I look forward to seeing you on campus!


Greg R. Weisenstein
