WCWP, the campus radio station, has relaunched this semester with a new station name, The Wave, for their student internet station. Students working at the station came together to come up with the new name in the fall 2018 semester. After narrowing the choice down to two names, Samantha Uebel, station program director, made the final decision.
The launch party for the new name was held in Hillwood Commons on Wednesday, Feb. 6. the party featured live music, information on student radio shows, and a cake. Students were able to get a free t-shirt and sticker after filling out a survey about the radio station.
Uebel thought the party was a success and was glad to see students enjoying the live entertainment. Uebel has lots of plans for the station going forward. “We’re really hoping to cater to the students with new stations and we have lot of new, exciting shows,” she said.
