Clubs, Activities & Recreation

Don’t let our small size fool you – you won’t find a more active community than ours.

There’s no shortage of ways to fill your time outside the classroom at Peace, whether you’re interested in learning, serving, broadening your horizons or just having fun.

From one-day events to membership organizations, to team sports – we’ve got you covered and then some.

#GoPeacePacers

Athletics are an important part of college life, and Peace is certainly no exception. We compete for championships on and off the field.

WPU is a member of the USA South Athletic Conference of the NCAA Division III, fielding teams in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s golf, men’s and women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis and volleyball.

Community Service

Our students truly care about the community. From service projects in the Appalachian Mountains, to assisting in the fight against Cancer, or packing thousands of meals for the homeless and less fortunate – our students get it done.

For example, through a non-profit organization called Team Impact, four-year-old Tucker Jordan, and other kids like him, become a part of something bigger on the WPU campus.
