ASP Important Updates and Announcements

ASP Summer Activity Calendar

Want a sneak peek at what is in store for you this summer?  Check out the ASP Summer Activity Calendar!

You will have the opportunity to sign up for the weekend activities and trips each week.  There is no extra charge for your travel or admission.  However, please be aware that when we are traveling off campus, you may need spending money for food or other incidental costs.  When you see a ($), that means that food is included with the cost.

Alcohol Education Program

Due to recent changes in the online Alcohol Education Program, students will receive information after they arrive at WCU and will complete the online program requirements after July 1st.

Room assignments have been mailed!

You should be receiving a packet in the next few days giving you important instructions and information for your arrival.  If you are missing any forms or other information, this will also be included.  Please complete all missing items as soon as possible, if you have not already done so.

Be sure that you have set up your Catamount Email account!

Log into MyCat and click on the Catamount Mail tab.  You will need to know your username which is the first part of your email address before the @ symbol.  If you are unsure of this, you can view your email address by clicking on the Personal Services tab and looking under Personal Information.  Your initial password should be the same as your MyCat password until you change it.  If you have any trouble setting up or accessing your Catamount Mail, please call the IT Help Desk at 828-227-7487 (Mon. - Fri. 8 am - 5 pm).

Join us on Facebook!

 Join our Facebook group for a chance to interact with other students, program staff, and each other prior to your arrival!  This is a great way to meet people, ask questions, and even find a roommate.
