Gab & GROW

is a new podcast that’s your location for learning about the people, places, and resources available at WCSU to help you be a successful student. Episodes are about as long as a bus-ride to the other campus. From “What’s happening in Athletics” to “Where is the Writing Center”, if you have a question, you’ll get an answer!

Roommate issues?

If you think you might already be having issues with your roommates, here’s a helpful tip:

Talk to them!

Your RAs will also be stopping in over the next week or so to help you create a contract with your roommates — so that you can agree on how neat you’d like the room, when it’s OK to bring guests in, whether to study with music (and headphones) on, etc.  Take the time to really talk with your roommates about this early on – it will be very helpful later!

If you are interested in moving to another building or space, make sure you speak to or email your RD (and the RD of the building you want to live in) so that, when the room freeze period is over, we can try to accommodate your request to move.  Remember – there may be nothing available where you want it, but the sooner you let the RDs know you’re interested in the move, the better the options you’ll have available.  Room changes will begin on September 9th.

Cable TV information:

For a new list of the updated cable channels, please click on this link.

Your digital television must have a QAM tuner (Quadrature Amplitude Modulation) to work with the school’s cable service. The QAM tuner allows your TV to receive high definition cable programming without a cable set top box. Unfortunately, some less expensive TVs come with a low quality QAM tuner that may not be able to pick up all the digital channels. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.


A NTSC (National Television System Committee) tuner is not compatible. This TV will require a digital-to-analog converter box to view television signals. (See information below to purchase a converter).


An ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) tuner can receive digital signals but is not compatible with the school’s cable system.


Here is a link to an informal compatibility reference for newer devices. We cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. You should verify the specifications when you purchase your TV.
