With spring now in the air, the Western Carolina University campus has come alive. Whether it's the International Festival, the Tuck River Cleanup or Greek Week, students have been enjoying a variety of events across campus as the spring semester winds to a close. Here is just a glimpse of some of the activities that have taken place through the lenses of university photographers Mark Haskett and Ashley Evans.
The Catamount Singers and Electric Soul, a Western Carolina University student ensemble, will present its spring concert, “Bring the Beat In!,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 26, at WCU’s John W. Bardo Fine and Performing Arts Center.
Twelve dance pieces, including four choreographed by students, will be featured as students and faculty from Western Carolina University’s Dance Program join together to present the annual Spring Dance Showcase at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, in Hoey Auditorium.
The fountain at Western Carolina University’s Central Plaza was surrounded by booths and tents hosted by international students, faculty and staff, study-abroad returnees, campus departments and community organizations for WCU's 39th annual International Festival on April 11.
Even good weather showed up for the 34th annual Tuck River Cleanup. Hosted by Western Carolina University’s Base Camp Cullowhee, the April 14 activity to clean up the Tuckaseigee River as it flows through Jackson County was deemed successful, if sometimes overwhelming, by organizers.
A contingent of 10 Western Carolina University students traveled to Albany, New York, recently to represent the university at the 28th annual National Latino Collegiate Conference, hosted by the University of Albany.
