WCU - Bill Studenc

Faculty, staff and some students with the College of Engineering and Technology at Western Carolina University are using 3D printers at the college's Rapid Center to develop visors for face shields for use by healthcare workers in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Patrick Gardner, Director of the WCU Rapid Center, was interviewed in this Friday Feature piece. The interview first aired on April 17, 2020.

  The new season of arts and cultural events is here, and in my second of a series of examples of what is available in our coverage area, I'm speaking with Lori Davis of Arts and Cultural Events - or ACE - in Culowhee at Western Carolina University. Although located at a college - like my first example, The Foundation Performing Arts Center - ACE is different in that WCU is a university that is known for its arts and cultural programs.
