WPU students learn early on in college that presentation is important. Through Showcase, they learn to communicate, collaborate, and share.

Each spring, William Peace University students take a day off from classes to participate in our annual Showcase, a celebration of the academic year when they share their research presentations, performances, poetry readings, debates, cross-disciplinary creative projects, and much more.

Watch as WPU students share their projects and research at #myWPUshowcase
