Experience Academic Excellence


Attending WP has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. Being a first-generation college student can be frightening, but the support from my professors has been extraordinary. They take time to talk to me and guide me through assignments. Plus, the diversity of programs WP offers to help students succeed are many, like the ASPIRE program. I did not expect to find such personal connection in a university, but it’s here, and I love it.
