The North Carolina primary and bond referendum may be over, but the vote casting continues as Western Carolina University pursues its third straight “Top Adventure College” title through an online poll conducted by Blue Ridge Outdoors magazine.
Voting in the first round of this year’s contest began Monday (March 14) and will continue until 9 a.m. Monday, March 28, with WCU going against Virginia Commonwealth University in a 16-school division for institutions with more than 5,000 students. If WCU makes it through three more rounds in its division, the university will face the winner of the division for smaller schools (fewer than 5,000 students) in the championship round in late April.
WCU captured the title of “Top Adventure College” in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic region in the magazine’s poll in 2014 and 2015.
