Tuesday's event, which will be held in conjunction with the WCU Alumni Association's Greater Atlanta Alumni and Friends Chancellor Reception, will be held at the Ansley Golf Club in Atlanta beginning at 7:00 pm. On Wednesday, the Catamounts Unite tour heads to the Speedway Club at Charlotte Motor Speedway in Concord before going to the Crest Center in Asheville on Thursday evening.

The fourth year of the Catamounts Unite Tour includes a series of receptions designed to allow WCU Director of Athletics Randy Eaton; head football coach Mark Speir; and head men's basketball coach Larry Hunter, as well as other Catamount coaches and staff, to meet with WCU alumni, supporters and Catamount fans as they continue to craft together the vision and direction of Catamount Athletics.

"We have experienced tremendous success over the first three years of the Catamounts Unite Tour, taking a piece of Cullowhee to our alum, supporters, donors and fan base across the region. We look to continue to strengthen the relationships and further engage the Catamount nation with this year's version of the tour," said Gorham Bradley, a former WCU student-athlete and coach prior to taking over as the Director of the Catamount Club. "Western Carolina Athletics is coming off a very successful year in 2014, and there is no better time than now to be a Catamount and to get involved. These tour stops will continue to allow us to share our vision for WCU athletics with the Catamount Nation, and also communicating with our fans how they can help be a part of our future success."
