Day of Caring in Potter College
Day of Caring is an opportunity to celebrate the connections we have each made because of WKU.
Because of those connections, we can face any challenge together, including the extraordinary times of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, get ready to reminisce about favorite WKU memories and meet new friends over social media as we honor what we all know makes WKU special– the strength of the WKU Family. Learn more at www.wku.edu/dayofcaring.
Share a memory, a #ThrowbackThursday photo of your time at WKU, or encouraging words for the Class of 2020 on your social media accounts, please use #TogetherWKU and tag @wkupcal.
Please help us continue to support Potter College students. Listed below are Potter College specific student support funds.
Care and Keeping Fund- Mirco Scholarships for Art Students
It's hard to learn and be creative when you're stressed about money. Sometimes you just need a little to get you to your next paycheck. The "Care and Keeping" micro scholarships are intended for students in emergency financial situations, and are available to address art students' immediate basic needs.
Give to the Care and Keeping fund by visiting the Art Department website and clicking the red 'Support Art Students' button at the top of the webpage.
Folk Studies and Anthropology Cares for Our Students!
Students are at the core of our departmental mission. We train students to pursue careers and advanced degrees in our disciplines and related fields. We engage students in meaningful hands-on learning experiences such as field work, lab analyses, and public outreach. We equip students with the tools to communicate effectively, to critically and creativity solve problems, and to engage respectfully and ethically with people of different backgrounds. We promote professional development and assist students in expanding their professional networks. We inspire students to serve their communities, to be responsible and compassionate citizens, and to aspire to lifelong learning. We proudly embrace our alumni as colleagues. And, now, during the quickly changing, uncertain, and frightening time of the pandemic crisis, we support and encourage our students and alumni and all the communities and partners with whom we work -- stay informed and engaged, take care of yourselves and others around you, turn negatives into positives, and remember that better days are ahead.
We encourage our students -- past and present -- and our friends to take a moment today to express support for each other, to share stories of overcoming obstacles, and to share memories of favorite classes, teachers, or experiences. And, we welcome contributions of caring in support of our students and departmental mission. Visit our Day of Caring web site to post a note or make a contribution!
Department of Music
Please continue to support the WKU Department of Music in these unprecedented times. The WKU Music Faculty and Staff continue to work with all of our students, alumni, and patrons as best as possible during these difficult days. We have postponed performance tours of the Mediterranean and Costa Rica to next year and we hope to add additional unique experiences to the calendar in the future. In the virtual world we have students completing their spring courses, competing in national competitions, and submitting research for publication and presentation. We also celebrate our graduating seniors and look forward to their contributions to music and the arts throughout their lives. Thank you for your generous gifts and support of music and the arts at WKU!
