Student News Releases
WCU's Office of Public Relations routinely sends news releases about student activities and honors to the hometown/local newspapers of the students involved. Students taking part in the Undergraduate Expo who wish to take advantage of that service should visit the PR website to complete an online biographical form and submit it via email to the Public Relations Office.
The Public Relations Office also can send photographs of students to their hometown/local newspapers to accompany the news releases. Students who want to take advantage of that service are invited to have their photographs taken.
Students with scheduling conflicts that prevent them from appearing at one of those photo sessions may make a special appointment to have a photo taken by calling the Public Relations photography office at 828-227-3081.
Students' personal photos will be considered for use, depending on quality. Portrait-quality head-and-shoulders shots may be emailed to email@example.com.
The Honors College sponsors a two-day, campus-wide Expo featuring the research, creative work, and service of undergraduates from a variety of fields and majors. The 2014 Expo will be held Monday-Tuesday, March 24-25, 2014. The Expo Reception, free for all faculty sponsors and undergraduate participants, will be held in the University Center Grand Room.
