What is The Quake?

WQKE is a Student Association-funded organization, so all students enrolled in classes at SUNY Plattsburgh who pay Student Association dues are eligible to join. No experience is necessary and all majors are welcome. Members must be a part of one of the departments at The Quake (see departments below), and put in one hour of station work per week.

Members of WQKE also complete community service work. The Quake regularly participates in their fall Starve-a-thon which collects cans of food to restock area food shelves. WQKE members also participate in the annual Relay for Life event on campus.
