WCU-Ontario Event Helps Students ‘Spring Into Success’

West Coast University-Ontario held a Student Appreciation Day on April 21 to remind students about the many tools available to help them “Spring Into Success.”

“We’re giving out stress balls and popcorn and our deans and directors are here to answer questions or just talk with students,” Roxanne Mendoza, WCU-Ontario student services coordinator, said. “This is about succeeding here at West Coast and getting encouragement from your deans and directors.”

Mendoza and others from Student Services handed out information about tutoring and mentoring programs the school has for students. She said there are a number of resources available to help WCU students succeed.

“One of our goals today is to make sure people know about what we offer,” she said. “Another goal is for people to utilize them.”

Outside the WCU-Ontario building, the American Red Cross had parked a large bloodmobile. There are two blood drives a year on campus, Mendoza said, and students are encouraged to donate at each event.

“As always, there’s a blood shortage going on and we try to help out by doing drives here at West Coast,” Mendoza said.
