Clubs, Orgs, and Student Events

Each day brings a variety of events and activities happening on campus. That’s because students at WLC don’t just focus on academics. They take part in — and lead — events and organizations that help develop leadership skills, spark their curiosity in new interests, and connect them with diverse people and opinions.

What sounds interesting to you? Whether you want to enjoy the great outdoors, volunteer with your friends, or hone your skills, there’s a way for you to pursue your passion at WLC through our 35+ clubs and organizations, activities and events, student leadership opportunities, and intramural programs.

Trick or Treat in the Halls

Trick or Treat in the Halls is a WLC tradition that our freshmen love. Each year, alumni and their family and friends are invited to visit ten floors in our residence halls for a special evening of trick or treating. Our freshmen decorate their halls in a theme of their choosing, dress up, and hand out candy to the children. Children's books, games, movies, and television shows are common decoration themes.

Sticky Notes Creativity Competition

What started in 2020 as just putting notes up on windows between the floors in Fischer Hall has erupted into an all-out creativity war among the college’s three residence halls. These conversations turned into a fun competition and provide artistic masterpieces for the WLC community to enjoy. The ammunition of choice?  Sticky notes.

Of our 15+ optional weekly worship opportunities, 9:25 p.m. on Wednesdays may be the favorite among our students. Vespers - Evening Prayer is an opportunity to quietly reflect on your week. A short devotion, prayer, and hymn in the middle of the week, in a relaxed atmosphere among peers, is a great way to decompress and rejuvenate, finishing your week strong in God's Word.
