Through several different leadership opportunities, WPU has helped me grow as a person. I have become involved in my campus community more than I ever did in my primary or secondary schooling experiences. The positions I have been able to hold such as, Admissions Ambassador, Class Representative, and Orientation Leader have all helped me to develop skills I will need long after my time at WPU has ended.
