Distinguished Lecture Series

Twice each semester, on feast days when classes are not in session (All Saints, November 1st; Immaculate Conception, December 8th; Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom, February 4th; The Annunciation, March 25th), WCC will welcome to the campus important guest speakers from different areas of academia, public life, and the Catholic world.  To see a complete list of this year’s lecturers, click here.

Formal dances

Four times each year the college hosts formal dances for the students.  These dances involve partner dancing only.  Students will be offered lessons in dances such as swing, waltz, polka, two-step, and line-dancing. Additionally students host informal dances to practice their steps.

WCC Opera Society

The college has a formal opera society for those who want to participate.  The opera society makes one large trip each year to Denver or Salt Lake City to attend an opera.  They also will occasionally show a filmed opera on a large screen.

Other activities

Other activities may include a Classic Film Series, poetry readings, and talent shows.  Much depends upon student imagination and initiative!

Off-campus opportunities

The College will inform students about cultural offerings and upcoming events in the community and the area, including historical study trips, the Lander Community Concert Association,  the Fremont County Orchestra, drama presentations at Central Wyoming College, the Wyoming State Winter Fair, the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center (with the Whitney Gallery of Western Art) in Cody, and the Carmelite monastery in Clark.  Trips will occasionally be organized to visit such places.
