Why we give to WJU:

Wheeling College had a huge impact on both of our lives.  It was an incredible time of growth – academically, socially and spiritually. The contacts we made during our college years (friends and faculty) became like family to us and continued to support us in many ways even after we graduated.  Both of us learned from our parents the value of giving back.  We choose to “pay it forward” by donating to WJU so other young people can benefit from the same Jesuit education we are so grateful that we received.
