Student Life

Study hard. Play hard. And take in everything that WPU and the city of Raleigh have to offer.

Just as important as your academic pursuits are the social, athletic, recreational, creative, spiritual and service-related experiences you will have while you’re here.

Write for the Peace Times. Flex your artistic muscles. Cheer on the Pacers. Take one of our day trips to Washington, D.C. Play intramural basketball. Volunteer. Whether it’s nurturing a lifetime passion or finding an interesting way to spend a Saturday afternoon, you’re sure to find life as a student here both fun and fulfilling.
