WSSU News, which was unveiled as part of a full web revamp on June 1, creates one go-to place for official news, announcements and features from WSSU.

“WSSU News, for the first time, brings all WSSU news content – from news articles to photos, graphics and videos, all in one place,” said Jay Davis, director of communications and media relations at WSSU. “The site also is mobile friendly. So, you can catch up on WSSU news from whatever device you choose.”
