Letter from the Coordinator of ASP

Dear 2015 ASP Student,

Welcome to Western Carolina University (WCU) and the Academic Success Program (ASP)!  I look forward to meeting you and working with you as you start your college experience.  As the Coordinator for ASP, I will be one of the primary contacts for you as you prepare to begin your college experience at WCU.  My role is to provide you with a positive and exciting opportunity to enhance your First-Year Experience at Western Carolina.

If you have already made the decision to attend ASP, then let me be one of the first to congratulate you on making an excellent choice to take advantage of an incredible opportunity to begin your college experience early.  I am sure that you may be a little nervous, but I can assure you that it will be a very rewarding experience as it has been for hundreds of students over the last several years. I invite you to read comments from some of those students and their parents in order to gain some insight as to what kind of experience you can expect.

If you are still unsure of your plans to attend ASP, this is completely normal.  You may relate to one of these experiences that some former students had in making their decision to attend WCU.  Feel free to contact us or arrange a time to visit campus, if you have not already done so.  

You will also find other valuable information, current news and updates by browsing the ASP website . If you have questions or need additional information, please contact our office at 828-227-3017 or asp@email.wcu.edu.

You will find many great opportunities in store as you begin your college experience. Enjoy yourself, but remember that the choices you make will impact your future. Choose wisely!

Best Wishes,

Janina C. DeHart

Assistant Director of Academic Transition & Success
Office of First Year Experience
