On March 2 at 5 p.m, in the Fine Arts Museum located of the Bardo Arts Center, a MFA student reception was held for Donna Sepulveda, a Western Carolina University graduate student. It showcased her outstanding talents and thesis project for her Master’s degree in Fine Arts.
Several students patiently waited around the entrance of the museum in anticipation for the exhibit to open. The conversations wafting around the room were light and welcoming as they engaged each other and staff. Refreshments including fruits, crackers, cheese and drinks were served.
For many, going to college can be a rough transition. Some students leave behind their support system of a church, question their beliefs or do not know where they stand at all religiously.
Wherever students may be in terms of their religion, Biltmore Baptist Church at Western Carolina University welcomes all to come and plug into a group of people who are striving to love the Lord and everyone around them.
The Climbing Club at Western Carolina University is a place for teamwork, support and the opportunity for training and competition within an individual sport.
For many students, the Climbing Club is a way to learn more about a sport they have an interest in but might not know how to begin. Kristen Eskridge, a Western Carolina junior and the club’s secretary, said this was the case for her when she joined the Climbing Club in October of 2015.
