WWU to Celebrate Courtwarming with Salute to Military

William Woods University’s Student Alumni Council (SAC) is putting the final touches on 2014 Courtwarming.  During the week of Feb. 3, students will have many opportunities to show their school pride.

The community, too, will be able to get involved during this year’s “Red, White, and Blue at WWU,” which includes tributes to the military.

The week kicks off Monday with a banner competition between residence halls.  On Tuesday, Tucker Dining Hall plans to serve an all-American lunch while students vote for their king and queen.

Wednesday will test the athleticism of each residence hall with various basketball games in Anderson Arena.

According to junior class president Benjamin Streumph, SAC has ideas for students to give back and to get the community involved on the festivities, as well.

On Thursday, students will have the opportunity to write thank you letters to soldiers during lunch in the Nielson room.

During Friday’s pep rally and court games, students can bring two canned goods for SERVE to receive their Courtwarming t-shirt.


Saturday’s Courtwarming games are intended to honor our country and those who have served it with Military Appreciation, said Streumph.  Local veterans and their families will receive free admission to the games with a valid military I.D.

Student Alumni Council hopes for a big outcome to this year’s Courtwarming week.  The members have combined new community outreach efforts with the traditions of WWU, including the pep rally and spirit dress days.  Students are encouraged to dress in an American-themed style each day during the festivities:

  • Tuesday: Red, White and Blue
  • Wednesday: WWU Gear
  • Thursday: Camo
  • Friday: America
