Announcements and Upcoming Events

THE QUESTION IS…. WHY VOLUNTEER? - When asked this question of many WCU student volunteers, this is what they shared.. “You step outside of yourself where your helping others and it’s not all about you.”  “You get to meet other students and make new friends.” “You learn more about the community around you.”  “You can take a break from your stressful day and mix it up a bit by serving others”.  So now, the question is WHY NOT?  Stop by our office for more information or assistance in finding a volunteer opportunity that’s right for you!
