Western Carolina University’s gaming club, Whee Game, strives to be a place of inclusion and fun. The club started almost 10 years ago by a group of guys who enjoyed gaming together.

Every Saturday the club gets together in the University Center Cardinal Room from 5 p.m. until midnight. This is a time dedicated to playing games together and is open to anyone interested.
