Good News around WCU
West Chester University was recently named a "Great College to Work For" by the Chronicle of Higher Education. All accredited U.S. universities were invited to participate in this survey and West Chester University was one of only 111 universities recognized.
West Chester University was recently awarded a Fire Prevention and Safety Grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the amount of $213,720.00. Kudos to Environmental Health & Safety's Greg Witmer for submitting the grant. This grant will allow a yearly program for magnetic devices to be put on microwaves to help ensure they shut off in the event of a fire and covers all training materials, devices and other associated costs.

Andrea (Daniels) Grinwis in the Office of Academic Affairs married Wayne Grinwis, an adjunct professor in the Dept. of Health, in Boot Road Park in West Chester on June 25th. The happy couple enjoyed a very personal and DIY wedding with close friends and family involved – Andrea made the flowers, Wayne made the dance floor, a good friend acted as officiant, and other friends made the dress and wedding cakes (they had two!). It was a beautiful day they will not soon forget! Congratulations Andrea and Wayne!
