Welcome back to the Kimmel School! It is always a pleasure to be in contact with our graduates, and we welcome your continued involvement with the School.
Keep in Touch
Please sign in with the Alumni Association to share news of your personal and professional achievements and to keep up with your university friends and classmates. You also will find information about alumni events in your area and on campus, awards for alumni, scholarships for the children of alumni and much more. To receive the Magazine of Western Carolina University, ask to be notified when it is posted online or request print copies by mail.
When you have news about awards you have earned, work you have presented or published, or events of interest, please call WCU’s Office of News Services at 828-227-7327 or send it to the Magazine of Western Carolina University at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Employers and Job Seekers
If you're hiring new employees and would like to consider a Western Carolina graduate, or if you are looking for a job yourself, you may find it useful to check in with WCU Career Services.
Please consider proposing a challenging project for student teams to work on. As you know, project-based learning is a critical part of the Kimmel School experience. Our seniors are required to work on real-world projects and to accomplish measurable outcomes . As a project sponsor, you will have a chance to mentor students, to monitor their work as potential employees, and to receive the results of their efforts.
We welcome alumni as business partners. If you or your company is facing a tough engineering challenge, the faculty and staff at the Center for Rapid Product Realization will be glad to work with you to find innovative solutions. Our goal is to help you move your product, quickly and efficiently, along the path to commercialization.
Nominate Prospective Students
If you know of prospective students who would do well at the Kimmel School, please ask them to call the Office of the Dean. We would be glad to talk with them about our academic programs, introduce them to faculty and offer a tour of our facilities.
Give a Gift to the School
Please consider giving a gift to the Kimmel School for a scholarship or to support an academic program. It is only through the generosity of individual alumni and companies that we can provide scholarship support for some of our best students. Without that support, many of them would never have the chance to graduate and go on to success in their chosen careers. Thank you, in advance, for your gifts.
Visit the Kimmel School
Please come back often to visit the Kimmel School and let us know how you are doing. Our offices are still located in the Belk Building on the south side of WCU's main campus in Cullowhee.
