WSSU students talk with representatives from Master of Social Work programs.

Winston-Salem State University’s Department of Human Service Studies hosted representatives from Master of Social Work (MSW) programs from North Carolina, South Carolina and California as part of forum on Thursday, Oct. 20.

This was an opportunity for WSSU students to meet and speak with representatives from several graduate programs. The event was held at the Center for Design Innovation.

WSSU and North Carolina A&T are teaming up to help victims of Hurricane Matthew at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. This email was sent to all students, faculty and staff today from Chief Norris.

Hello Campus Community:

As you are aware, many parts of North Carolina were badly impacted by Hurricane Matthew. Our fellow University of North Carolina school UNC-Pembroke has been most severely affected. Because many stores in that area remain closed, many of that university’s students, faculty, and staff are in dire need of supplies. The most sought items include: baby food, diapers, and cleaning supplies such as Lysol, bleach, Clorox wipes, washing detergent and trash bags.

North Carolina A&T has arranged for a truck to deliver supplies to Pembroke on Saturday, Oct. 22. Winston-Salem State University is partnering with NC A&T to fill the truck with supplies. To participate, please bring the supplies listed above to the Old Maintenance Building (Police Department) any time before 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21.

Let’s show UNC-Pembroke WSSU’s spirit of giving by helping those who so desperately need our assistance during this difficult time.
