Adventurous students with a passion for cultural discovery can participate in Wildcats of the World (WOW). These students take advantage of opportunities to travel the world in order to see and experience new places, people, activities, customs, and cultures. Through these unique journeys WOW travelers become more confident, more independent, and more connected to themselves and others.
