Experience Academic Excellence


Through becoming an active club leader on campus, I have made connections with professors and staff in various academic departments as well as in the Academic Success Center. Whether I have a personal problem or a challenge in class, their doors are always open for me. They give me advice and encourage me to make decisions for myself. My experience at WP has cultivated me into not just a great student, but also a great Black man.
