On Location events set for Sept. 13-15

Representatives from Western Carolina University are hitting the road in September to meet with prospective students and their friends and families at informational receptions in Greensboro, Raleigh and Charlotte.

“WCU On Location offers a sneak preview of the westernmost campus of the University of North Carolina system – Western Carolina University,” said Phil Cauley, WCU director of student recruitment and transitions.

WCU On Location receptions, which are free and open to the public, will be held Monday, Sept. 13, in Greensboro; Tuesday, Sept. 14, in Raleigh; and Wednesday, Sept. 15, in Charlotte. A brief presentation takes place at 7 p.m., but guests are encouraged to stop by anytime between 6 and 9 p.m. to talk one-on-one with WCU representatives about their interests and how they might fit in with the range of academic programs and student life opportunities at WCU. Staff and faculty also will be available to discuss the admission process, financial aid, scholarships, residential living, the Honors College and more.

“We want our guests to come away with a sense of the people, the programs and the personality of WCU to help them decide if they want to come visit the campus in person or apply,” said Cauley.

Western Carolina, which enrolls more than 9,000 students, is located about 50 miles west of Asheville near Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

“We hope everyone who has an interest in finding out if WCU might be the right choice for them for their undergraduate, graduate or online programs will join us,” said Cauley.

• Monday, Sept. 13 – Embassy Suites, 204 Centreport Drive, Greensboro
• Tuesday, Sept. 14 – North Raleigh Hilton, 3415 Wake Forest Road, Raleigh
• Wednesday, Sept. 15 – Hilton Charlotte University Place, 8629 JM Keynes Drive, Charlotte
