Continuing the Momentum at WCU

Total enrollment at Western Carolina University has increased by nearly 30 percent in the last decade. 2019 will mark the first time total enrollment at WCU has surpassed 12,000 students. Many things have fueled WCU's growth, including: a long list of nationally recognized degree programs, our unique outdoor adventure location adjacent to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, our institutional commitment to maintaining a safe and supportive campus community, new state-of-the-art teaching facilities, affordable tuition, and arguably the best marching band in the country. Join us in Catamount Country!
