President's Message
A virtual reality headset may be on your kids’ or grandkids’ holiday wish list, but virtual reality isn’t all fun and games at WCU. In our new Planning Studio, which also houses the Center for GIS and Spatial Analysis, undergraduate and graduate students are learning how to use virtual reality technology to solve real-world problems for campus, community and business partners, including the Borough of West Chester and the Chester County Economic Development Council.

Learn more about these students and their 3D projects in my recent #FirstFriday video, which can be found on the far right side of my website: www.wcupa.edu/president.
