Following a week of exciting major announcements, Wofford College has announced plans for a new Greek Village for fraternities and sororities to be built on campus.
The Wofford College Board of Trustees on Tuesday, Oct. 21, approved and unveiled the college’s strategic vision and announced the first facility included in the plan – The Rosalind S. Richardson Center for the Arts.
In its commitment to the preservation of the core of the liberal arts, Wofford College will use a $100,000 grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to enhance learning in the general education curriculum through a renewed emphasis on writing and by further integrating information literacy, undergraduate research, electronic portfolios and the digital humanities.
The New York Times this week ranked Wofford College among the 99 “most economically diverse top colleges,” based on efforts to provide low-income students accessibility to a college education. Wofford was the top South Carolina institution on the list, ranked at 43rd, just ahead of Yale University at 44 and Davidson College at 47.
