The Class of 2023 leaves Cullowhee as one of the most resilient classes in WCU history. They overcame a pandemic that forced a switch to online classes from home, before returning to campus for hybrid instruction, followed by a return to normalcy. Now they are prepared to take that resiliency into the workplace as proud Catamounts.

Ceremonies and Livestreams

All ceremonies will be available via livestream on Western Carolina University's Youtube channel  and on this page. Livestream videos will be switched out on this page once each ceremony is complete. Live captioning is available through StreamText.
