Be a Wildcat

How do you know if you're Wildcat material? It's easy. Wildcats are family. We're welcoming and inclusive. We believe in the greater good. We're the first to volunteer for difficult tasks. We love a challenge. We think before we act, and our actions are rooted in integrity and compassion. Being a Wildcat means taking chances to solve complex global challenges, yet still also taking the time to do the simple things that make a big difference, like smiling at a stranger.
