This spring's WCUC has been moved online.

We are saddened to say that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, WCBC will not be able to host our on-campus West Coast Up Close as planned. We hope this virtual experience will help you understand how God could use WCBC to help you prepare for your future, and we look forward to welcoming guests to campus again as soon as possible.

West Coast Up Close

West Coast Up Close is an opportunity for those who are considering college options (students, recent high school graduates, parents, etc.) to experience all that WCBC offers. Through this event, you’ll participate in the day-to-day academic, spiritual, and social aspects of campus life.

Whether you’ve visited the WCBC campus before or have never been to California, you’ll find that West Coast Up Close is a highly concentrated, personal opportunity to see what WCBC life is really like.
