Virtual Engagement

Engagement opportunities during COVID-19

Stay engaged and entertained with Wilmington College


We want our alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends to continue engaging with one another, even as we isolate ourselves in our homes. We will be providing fun engagement opportunities online on this page (and through social media). At the bottom of this page, you’ll find a list of other entertainment options we think you’ll find interesting. For updates on the College’s response to COVID-19, visit Campus Closures.

Wilmington College has had to make difficult decisions in responding to the threat of COVID-19. These decisions were not taken lightly, and they come with a real financial cost to the College and to students. A gift from you at this time will have an immediate impact as the College redirects its resources to support students and plan for the next academic year. Be sure to select “WC Coronavirus Emergency Recovery Fund” from the list of designations.

The Quake

WILMINGTON COLLEGE RADIO

The Quake seeks to embolden its listeners through diverse radio broadcasts that celebrate the youthful rebellion of postmodern music. We’re here to celebrate what music has grown to become, as well as the roots that it stems from. We’re here to amplify voices that need to be heard, to shake our community with the sheer power of awareness, truth, and some real good jams.
