Family Orientation

We know that as family members you are concerned about where you students will be living, what they will be eating and who will be taking care of them in your absence.  Our mission is to provide you with these answers and much more!

WCU will provide an overview of campus resources and services, including such areas as:

  • Financial Aid
  • Student Health and student health insurance
  • Residential Living
  • Dining services/meal plans
  • Student accounts and e-bills

WCU will highlight student involvement opportunities.

WCU will provide an interactive session with current students to answer your questions and concerns.

This is a time of transition for you as well as your student and we will share tips for supporting your student while letting them go and help you become familiar with the multiple support services and opportunities available to your student.
