The Parents Fund supports projects that directly impact your student's environment and educational experience. These projects are designed to promote, satisfy, comfort, and create a home away from home for WCU students. Over the past 20 years, parents have contributed nearly $50,000 to fund many important projects on campus including:
- Emergency funds for students' unexpected financial crises, including funds for housing, food, textbooks and tuition
- Emergency telephones strategically located around campus
- Computers in the residence halls
- Automatic external defibrillators in locations frequented by students
- Improved campus safety, including increased police presence on streets frequented by students
Now and in the Future, parent support is needed to help maintain student emergency scholarships, university enhancements, extracurricular activities, and provide additional campus security.
