WU's Talents

A word from the Rector

The WU Community has a wealth of creativity, diversity, and innovative power. We demonstrate and experience these values every day in our academic life. Many of us have inspiring talents that may not be visible to everyone. There are scores of musicians, dancers, illusionists, comedians, painters, sculptors, and other talented people here in the WU community. We are proud of all of them. By rolling out “WU’s Talents,” we want to bring the WU community’s creative side into the spotlight.

You have a special talent and would like to show the WU community and the world what you can do? Then sign up for the talent show “WU’s Talents.” We’d love to get to know your artistic side!
