WCU WISH Week, scheduled for March 26 – 30, 2018, is a week-long, student-centered   event designed to:

  1. engage students in a broad exploration of what success means to them, in college and beyond;
  2. initiate an ongoing discussion of the attitudes, behaviors, and characteristics that are known to be associated with personal success; and
  3. create a community of success-minded students who are not only aware of the resources that WCU offers them but are willing to actively utilize those resources to help them reach their life goals.   

WISH (an acronym for Well-Being, Interests & Strengths, Success, & Happiness) refers to the areas of individual development that are at the heart of the daily themes for WISH Week:

Day Date Theme
Monday March 26, 2018 Well-Being Day
Tuesday March 27, 2018 Interests & Strengths Day
Wednesday March 28, 2018 Success/Mindset Day
Thursday March 29, 2018 Happiness Day
Friday March 30, 2018 Engagement Day/Lunch Party

The events of each day expose students to a variety of demonstrations, presentations, discussions, personal assessments, and engagement opportunities.  The ultimate goal of WCU WISH Week is to push students to recognize and utilize their strengths and to consider all the ways they can positively affect their own development, as they look beyond their current selves and begin to envision who they want to be.  And, all of this is done within the context of fun with daily quotes and give-away items (e.g., “Don’t write off your happiness” with free pens on the International Day of Happiness), prizes, pictures with Rammy and a snapchat filter, food, music, visits with therapy dogs, etc).
