Announcements and Upcoming Events

Summer Alternative Break Spots Open!: This summer, a gorup of students will explore connections between areas of poverty and urban food deserts in Philadelphia.  The group will support urban gardening programs including Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's (PHS) City Harvest Program and the East Park Revitalization Alliance's (EPRA) community gardens in Strawberry Mansion.  Students will help prepare seedlings for distribution to over 130 urban farms and gardens throughout the city.  Particpating growers distribute the fresh produce in their communities.  To apply, visit 

Emergency Volunteer Team  In the event of an emergency such as a natural disaster, WCU is designated by the state of Pennsylvania as an Emergency Response Center.  To enact an Emergency Response plan on campus, we need student volunteers ready and eager to assist when needs arise. For example, we experienced a major ice storm a few years ago where we opened a 200-person emergency shelter on campus. Joining this team does not necessitate your attendance if an event were to occur, but instead is allowing us to contact you to inquire if you are able to help should the event arise.  Students can join the team by filling out a simple form  here.

Fern Hill Spring Carnival Volunteers - Fern Hill Elementary is in search of volunteers for their Spring Carnival on Saturday, March 7th to help with set up, break down, concessions, and games.  All volunteers must be 18 with their volunteer clearances to participate.  To sign up, contact Erin at or sign up here.
