Student Life and Retention held WAU Health and Wellness Week in the Wilkinson Hall Lobby from November 15-18. The four-day event gave students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to become aware of their health through various tests, information videos, and discussions with event staff.
To date, just over 400 returning traditional (non-SGPS) students have completed the registration process for the Spring semester! As promised, three 32GB iPod Touch devices were given away on December 8 at a drawing in the Dining Hall. Congratulations to the lucky winners:

Following recent organizational restructuring, Gerald L. Anderson, MGA, CPHIMS, PMP, has joined WAU's administrative team as Senior Vice President for Operations.

The 2010-11 Fall enrollment numbers are in, and the news is more than good. WAU is experiencing enrollment not seen since 1990 with a headcount of 1,298. This is a 10.2% increase over 2009’s enrollment of 1,178. “This is a significant milestone for WAU,” says William Jackson, Vice President for Marketing & Recruiting. “Not only are our programs attracting incoming freshmen, but also transfer students from other institutions. Additionally we are retaining our own students at a better rate. It has taken a team effort with recruiting by Enrollment Management, faculty and staff, along with a campus wide emphasis on retention.”
