Western Carolina University students recently got the opportunity to share the research they’ve been doing all semester at the Senior Seminar. This year’s seminar was based on the theme of “the rhetoric of identity” and was held in the Blue Ridge Conference Room on Nov. 14. It was presented by Western Carolina’s English Department, the Association of Seniors and Dr. Carol Burton, the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies.
Planning to be around the Western Carolina University main campus over break? Want to give back to the community? Have a class coming up with service learning requirements that you want to get a head start on?
The Center for Service Learning has several volunteer opportunities for those who will be in the area over the holiday break.

This semester, various events have taken place on the campus of Western Carolina University with the goal of more than just entertaining students. These events on campus have a larger goal: to leave an impact on the students and community that will last beyond the end of the event.
Christina Parker, president of the Ripple Effect, said her organization and other organizations on campus are always working to ensure that events held on campus create a lasting impact. They also want to make sure that issues and topics that need to be discussed and addressed are brought to light.
