CULLOWHEE, N.C. (AP) - Western Carolina University is opening the academic year with a party to celebrate its 125th anniversary.

The school is holding a Big Birthday Bash on Tuesday on the A.K. Hinds University Center lawn and nearby central plaza

The afternoon includes a picnic with barbecue, hamburgers, veggie burgers, hot dogs, watermelon, funnel cakes, deep-fried goodies, lemonade, tea and birthday cake.

Also planned are a variety of old-fashioned games and photo opportunities with props representative of Western Carolina history. The tentative schedule includes musical entertainment provided by the Dirty Guv’nahs, and party-goers will be eligible to win a variety of door prizes.

Student hosts will be giving guided tours of a walking trail featuring university landmarks and points of historical interest as part of a project by a WCU history class.
