The Constitutional Shark Tank was held Sept. 18 at Western Carolina University’s A.K. Hinds University Center. The event was hosted by Dr. Todd Collins, Director of the Public Policy Institute and Associate Professor of the Political Science and Public Affairs Department, and co-hosted by Fiona Buchanan, Social Media Ambassador to Western Carolina. Both Collins and Buchanan participate in voter registration drives on campus and try to host an event for Constitution Day each year.
The Center for Career and Professional Development recently held a fashion show called “Hire Attire” in the University Center’s Grand Room. Exclusively featuring Western Carolina University students and faculty as models, the show displayed an array of outfits for different professional situations like going to a job interview or working on casual Fridays. The clothes and accessories were provided by Clothes Mentor in Asheville and Belk of Waynesville.
Every semester, the Department of Campus Activities coordinates with the rest of Western Carolina University’s administrative team to put on the Week of Welcome, a weeklong celebration of the cultural opportunities that Western Carolina has to offer. This year’s Week of Welcome had everything from magic acts to the eclipse viewing party to the chance to dunk a parking officer. The festivities culminated on Friday, Aug. 25 with musical performances by The Ready Set and Throwback Time Machine.
