The Whee Teach Living-Learning Community has been named the Community of the Month for the entire state of North Carolina by the NC Association of Residence Halls. This is the first time a living-learning community has received this recognition. The Whee Teach Living Learning Community is designed to provide a holistic college experience by combining classroom learning, co-curricular activities, and a residential learning community. There are approximately 75 current members and the 2013-14 goal is to add 75 new freshman.
Twenty-three students from the leadership councils of Teaching Fellows and Whee Teach participated in team-building and group integration activities through Xtreeme Challenge in Monroe, NC on March 8-10. The groups, accompanied by CEAP faculty and staff, completed activities on low and high ropes courses and zip lines.
Whee Teach, the Living-Learning Community for WCU students who desire to become educators, won the Residential Community of the Month award for December. This award recognizes the group’s contributions to WCU and the cohesion and dedication they have developed, particularly after the passing of Dr. Janice Holt who was one of the program coordinators.
