See what our loveable mascot Paws is getting into this year to spread the holiday spirit around Cullowhee!
Starting off the season with the Holidays on the Plaza on the campus of Western Carolina University. We'll be joined by folks from across campus to celebrate all the ways our community celebrates the holidays and ending with our first-ever lighting of the Alumni Tower!

Blair Tormey, a geologist with the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines at Western Carolina University, adjusted his ballcap and quickly assembled a ground penetrating radar unit, looking much like a robotic lawn mower, before pushing it up the hillside.

Our campus has been quiet all summer without all of our Catamounts around. We're excited to welcome faculty, staff, and students back for the Fall semester!
