About WPU for Parents & Families

Welcome to William Peace University, where education is about much more than just earning a degree. Expect an experience that will challenge and nurture your student with personal attention and abundant opportunities to learn, to grow and to shine.

As a parent, guardian or family member of a current or future Peace student, you have a vested interest in their choice of college. That makes you an important part of our extended family. From here, you can get to know WPU, find answers to important questions and support your student along their journey, whether they’re just looking at colleges or have already been admitted to WPU.

Are you the parent/guardian of a current or accepted student?

Life on Campus

You’re not just sending your student off to study; you’re sending him or her to live in a new place. No doubt you want to know what life will be like on campus. Rest assured, residence halls are safe, comfortable and convenient, dining options are designed to accommodate many different preferences and dietary restrictions, and there will be plenty to do outside of classes.
