What I like about ICA: Diversity is not only the embracing and acceptance of differences, but the celebration of those differences.  The ICA is a strong enforcer of celebrating diversity.  I love the engagement the ICA allows with the students of WCU to have a hand in helping with the celebration of diversity, whatever it may be. I feel a sense of unity and community as I walk through its doors.

What I like about the WCU: I feel that being on a smaller campus allows one to make a bigger difference. I like the friends I've made and the many people I continue to meet daily. I love the student/teacher ratio which allows you to humanize your professor and develop a relationship. No matter what adversity throws at us we continue to sing;"Fight on you Catamounts!"
