Clubs and Organizations at WLU

One of the key reasons as to why college is considered one of the best times in a young person’s life is because of the opportunities you are presented during those four years. Whether it be the time you and your roommate went to homecoming or attending one of the many fairs West Liberty has, you have to be involved in order to enjoy these experiences. One of the best ways you could get involved and have a great time in college is by joining the clubs that are on campus.

Some of the more popular clubs on campus certainly include all types of Greek Life. Alpha Psi Omega, Beta Rho Epsilon, Chi Beta Phi, Chi Omega, Delta Theta Kappa, Delta Zeta Pi and the list goes on and on. Beta Rho Epsilon says, “(Our) purpose is to meet new people on campus and develop a diverse group of women. The mission is lifelong friendship, international awareness, scholarship and service to a better society.” Considering the fact that it is Greek Week, it is the perfect time to get involved in these organizations and make new friends and memories.

Many colleges have an eclectic collection of clubs, but West Liberty offers clubs that are fair beyond the norm. Some unique clubs include the ultimate Frisbee club, beard club, historical combative studies club, and even a Nicholas Cage fan club. The Paranormal club also takes part in scary movie nights and have also spent the night at the West Virginia Penitentiary.

Some of the most popular clubs on campus include the American Dental Hygienist club, the West Liberty dance team, the flag football club, and the lacrosse club. The dance team is currently looking for more people to join and now is the time to go check them out. For more information about the clubs on the West Liberty’s campus you can log on to westliberty.edu and go to the clubs and organization section of campus services.

It is a body of students who serve as important leaders of the school. They put together big events around campus. One of the events is homecoming, which is the biggest event and celebration of the year.

Recycling is easy to do at WLU

As college students, we tend to create a lot of trash. Throughout the semester, we use countless pieces of paper, plastic bags and bottles, aluminum cans, and other materials that we often just throw away. But it only takes a little extra effort to recycle many of the items we take for garbage, and at WLU, it’s getting even easier for us to do so.

“The Giver” is a Must-See

These days, dystopian sci-fi is a big deal in the movie industry. And the trend continues with the latest book-to-movie adaptation, “The Giver.”

Though not met, unfortunately, with nearly as high acclaim as its dystopian sci-fi cousins “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent,” “The Giver” is a movie that is worth seeing. Not only is it well-made and casted, but this is a movie that also makes you think.

Why Isn’t Construction Done?

West Stadium construction

By Katie Ralbusky, Online Editor

We all know about the construction going on around campus. A new press box is being built along with a new ramp in front of the Student Union. Three parking lots are blocked off and we commuters have had to make some accommodations. I understand it can all be a little frustrating. So I asked around campus and inquired as to what students and teachers alike thought of all this.

The new exhibit at West Liberty’s Nutting Gallery features toy truck-themed multimedia creations by artist Jamie Biggs.

Biggs, an Associate Professor of Art at Concord University, created the series of fun, cartoony trucks out of clay. Then, he filled the beds of the trucks with everyday objects like empty bottles, firewood, and used books.

Library Advances

West Liberty’s library has made some significant technical advances. The most prominent being the new network wiring that will allow for more data speed, reliability, and better access. Particularly to students working on multiple devices, such as a computers and phones. It is rather ironic that students will enjoy this the most, but cannot physically see it.

WLU’s Improvements

Within the last year there have been many changes amongst our campus. Some are massive, while others are so simplistic that they go unnoticed. If you are attending a class near the football stadium, library, or the student union you will see a lot of improvements that were needed.
