IEP Student Testimonial
WCU Undergraduate

"I think that I have a good future here at Western Carolina. Before I came I was thinking that maybe I was going to leave. On the first day I judged Western [by it's cover] because it was in a town and I used to live in the city.

But now I realize that I love this place. I have become a part of this place. I need to finish my education here and get a degree."
