WPU Welcomes Students Affected by Art Institute and South University Closings

August 1, 2018

William Peace University is proud to welcome students from The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte, as well as South University in High Point, in their college transition. All three institutions will be closing their campus doors at the end of the year and have announced they will no longer be accepting new students.

WPU Admissions invites affected students to apply for the upcoming fall semester, which begins August 22. The Admissions team has worked tirelessly to make the transfer process to WPU from The Art Institute as seamless as possible. In particular, Art Institute students who study Game Art and Design, Graphic Design, and Media Arts can continue their degree in Peace’s Simulation & Game Design (SGD) and Communication programs.

With more than 30 simulation and game organizations in the Triangle area alone, WPU’s convenient location in downtown Raleigh is a haven for SGD students to sharpen their skills and shape the future of gaming. SGD faculty at WPU are not only experts within their field, but they continue to actively work as professional game designers in the area.

WPU ‘s Communication program has a long-standing reputation for placing graduates in a wide variety of fields in nearly every type of industry. From graphic design to broadcast journalism, WPU’s Communication program offers a broad scope of coursework and opportunities. Every program of study, including Communication, requires an internship for graduation, so students leave WPU with not only a degree, but a resume as well.
