WCU WISH Week, scheduled for March 20 – 24, 2017, 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 20, 2017 International Day of Happiness
Tuesday March 21, 2017 Well-Being Day
Wednesday March 22, 2017 Mindset Day
Thursday March 23, 2017 Interests & Strengths Day
Friday March 24, 2017 Engagement Day

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).
