The WCU Resource Pantry
1:5=the ratio of students at four-year schools who report being hungry! 

College campuses around the country are recognizing that some of their students are food-insecure. Some students are overtaxed in just paying for tuition, so when it comes time to buy a textbook or buy food, they cut back on food.   The WCU Resource Panty is helping to solve that issue.  Since opening last semester, the WCU Resource Pantry has given out over 800 pounds of food.   The Panty not only provides students with food, but also winter clothing, professional clothing for interviews and toiletries.   If you would like to find out more about the WCU Resource Pantry and making food or clothing donations, please click here.

 WCU Receives $500,000 in Scholarship Support

At a check presentation ceremony on February 10, 2017, WCU has partnered with Give Something Back and Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundations to help students overcome obstacles and succeed in school.  

Working together through their “Goals & Assists” joint venture, Give Something Back and Ed Snider Hockey Foundations will provide $500,000 in scholarships to 25 Philadelphia area high school students who are participating in the Ed Snider Youth Hockey program. These Foundations are dedicated to helping youth who are academically motivated to excel despite financial challenges.  “This joint-venture can provide the support necessary for these students to overcome challenges and gain the rewards of a WCU degree.  Providing these qualified students, who otherwise, financially, would not be able to attend college, a path to educational success can be transformative,” said Richard T. Przywara, executive director of the WCU Foundation.
