CHEROKEE
Community. Culture. Connections.

For the past seven years, WCU has selected an interdisciplinary theme for campus conversations, curricular and co-curricular connections, and enrichment. The primary focus is to educate and to offer a holistic look at something through multiple lenses. Join us this year as we celebrate all things Cherokee.
