Clubs & Groups

Eco C.A.T.S. (Conservation Awareness Team for Sustainability) is dedicated to reducing our university's impact on the environment through education and service while having fun. 

WCU GeoClub is a student organization designed for people who have taken an interest in geological studies. GeoClub’s foremost purpose is to provide opportunities for club members and the community to experience and discover the enjoyment in geology. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MAJOR! 

The Environmental Stewardship (ES) Club raises environmental awareness by promoting environmental stewardship, and developing an annual Earth Day event and other activities both on and off campus.
