Why WPU?

Small University; big downtown. WPU is steps away from downtown Raleigh, bringing together the best of a unique on-campus community with opportunities off-campus for jobs, exploration, and fun.

At WPU, you get a return on investment: 96% of our graduates are employed or in graduate school within one year of Commencement. With a focus on experiential learning, intimate class sizes, and a thriving campus community, WPU empowers students to become confident, responsible, and compassionate leaders in their communities and beyond.
