An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “I love living on campus. There’s always something to do, and with downtown Raleigh just steps away, you’ll never get bored.”

    • Anna Grace Wyneken ’18
  • “As a transfer student myself, I know what you may be thinking. That’s why I highly recommend that you come and schedule a tour of campus and see if it’s the right fit for you. I decided to come to WPU because I was impressed with its Communication program and a lot more.”
