150th Anniversary Events

College Hall

While we cannot celebrate with you in person, we do want to provide you with an opportunity to celebrate this momentous occasion, as this was the kick-off to our 150th-year celebration. To accomplish this, we have created a few virtual events that will hopefully provide a connection to WC during this time away from campus events.
