Thank You!

As I'm sure you (and your inbox) heard, last Friday was our Charter Day of Giving! We're still working on counting every dollar but want to take the time to say Thank you to everyone who made it happen.  

With over $150,000 raised and 700+ donors, this Charter Day of Giving was our best one yet.  We can't complete our mission of student success without you, our Ram Fam. 

And our Golden Rams wanted to show their thanks!  Check out all the student signatures and a photo below from the big day.   

Stay tuned! We'll be announcing our grand total and sharing some words from President Fiorentino soon... Thank you again for all that you do for student success at WCU.
