Life Outside The Classroom: Making Friends To Last A Lifetime

"The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time of my life.  I answered without a thought, "now." - David Grayson

Q&A Session With A Student From WJU

 What is there to do on campus?

Our Campus Activity Board (CAB) is busy planning events for the students on campus.  Some of the programs that CAB plan include: Movie nights, Live Music, Karaoke, Trips to Pittsburgh, PA, and many other. The RATT (WJU's on-campus pub) hosts comedians, magicians, bands, and DJ's.  There is always something different, and it's tons of fun!  Some nights will have a theme, like "casino night" or "decade night," where students will dress up in outfits from the 60's, 70's, and 80's and dance the night away.  Some would say that "Last Blast" is the highlight of the year.  During the week before finals, when students most need a little break from the constant studying, WJU hosts "Last Blast" on Donahue Lawn.  There is free food, tons of games, a live concert and a formal dance.  During previous years, there have been obstacle courses, inflatables, Sumo wrestling, rock climbing, and even a game of "Fear Factor!"

 What is there to do off campus in Wheeling?

There is always something exciting happening in Wheeling, WV.  St. Clairsville Mall and the Highlands (www.the-highlands.com) with its multitude of shops and restaurants, is not too far away.  Olgebay Park is absolutely beautiful every time of the year.  Go and see it's striking gardens in the spring and it's magical "Festival of Lights" around Christmas. For the college students who enjoy the dance scene, check out River City for a night of dancing and fun with your friends!
