Pom-poms, floats, banners, dancing student groups, dignitaries waving in cars, the sounds of the alumni band leading the way… WCU's Homecoming Parade will spread purple and gold cheer up and down Rosedale Avenue, particularly in front of Sykes Student Union, this Saturday, October 28, beginning at 10 a.m.

The Parents Fund has been busy this semester. This last year gifts to the Parents Fund helped to provide over $47,000 in emergency scholarship support to students who would otherwise not have been able to attend classes. In addition, the Parents Fund sent students to celebrate WCU’s baseball team’s NCAA Division II Championship at a Phillies game, funded the Student Flu Shot program providing all students the opportunity for a healthy year and sponsored the Alternative Spring Break program, which fosters citizenship among our students.
