Greetings GWU Parents and Families!

August has arrived again! The campus is gaining momentum as we approach the beginning of the fall semester. It is an exciting time at Gardner-Webb University as this will be the first full academic year with our new president, Dr. William Downs.

Each August students arrive with a mix of emotions. They are glad to be back on campus and connecting with friends, yet nervous about what the year might bring.  Therefore finding a place to connect is really important.

Whether your student is a returning student, a transfer student, or a new student, I want to introduce an event that Gardner-Webb holds every fall for students at the beginning of the semester, Connect Fair.  This year, Connect Fair is Tuesday, August 20, from 11am to 1pm in the Tucker Student Center.  Connect Fair is host to over 60+ clubs, organizations, and local churches that your student can learn about, join, or visit.  Plus, free pizza and orangeades.

If you are on campus please stop by and introduce yourself. I am located in the Tucker Student Center. You and your student are important at Gardner-Webb.

Thank you,

Dr. Sarah A. Currie
Vice President of Student Development &
Dean of Students

P.S. Mark your calendar for Family Weekend, September 13-15, 2019.
