There is always something exciting happening on WLC’s campus. A great college experience is not only about the academics, but also the activities and experiences that occur outside of the classroom. At WLC, students have the opportunity to explore new interests, pursue their passions, and have a blast doing so! Warriors take part in — and lead — a wide variety events and activities. Over the years, many of these experiences have become traditions. 

Please consider a gift to keep these WLC traditions alive! In the gift dropdown menu (below), select the experience you’d like to support with your donation.
