Since its founding in 2016, the WCU Alumni Network has grown steadily to a community of more than 4,000 alumni, students and supporters. This expansive network has helped raise funds over the past year to support the WCU Alumni Scholarship Fund, which will provide WCU graduates and students with financial assistance to complete their education and career goals.
This year has also brought the creation of the very first WCU Alumni chapter in Texas. This group will support alumni in the Dallas/Fort Worth area by providing networking opportunities, support of future alumni and encouraging unity among Texas WCU graduates.
In 2019, the WCU Alumni Relations team will begin awarding scholarships from the Alumni Scholarship Fund and establish a WCU Alumni chapter to California.
At the inaugural WCU Alumni Awards event, attendees enjoyed a night of networking with fellow WCU graduates, delicious food, fun dance floor and a raffle for WCU gear. Photos from the event can be found on our Facebook page.
