ABOUT the West Indian Student Establishment (WISE)



Since its establishment in 1993, the West Indian Student Establishment (WISE), an interracial membership organization, has been instrumental in improving the social, educational and personal lives of Drexel University's Caribbean students and students interested in the Caribbean culture.  By combining the energy, charisma and the devote national pride that instill every islander with the need to belong and the desire to feel accepted in a foreign land, WISE has become the outlet for Caribbean ideas, culture, traditions and beliefs for the Drexel University community.








Modus Operandi

Like Sprint, we are (kind of) free, fair and flexible. The West Indian Student Establishment functions to meet the needs and wants of its general body within the scope of the University's policy's and the organization's annual budget. WISE is open to all Drexel students with a desire to learn and experience the Caribbean culture at its most informal level.




WISE is currently headquartered at 3141 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104 in the basement of the Creese Student Center in the Greenwalt Student Development Center Rm. 48A.  All is welcomed to stop by Monday through Friday between the hours of 12 noon and 6PM to meet with other members of the organization. After  hours, interested parties are encouraged to leave a message at 215 895 0464 or send an email to dsowise@drexel.edu.
