Student Life

Study hard. Play hard. And take in everything that WPU and the city of Raleigh have to offer.

Just as important as your academic pursuits are the social, athletic, recreational, creative, spiritual and service-related experiences you will have while you’re here.

Write for the Peace Times. Flex your artistic muscles. Cheer on the Pacers. Take one of our day trips to Washington, D.C. Play intramural basketball. Volunteer. Whether it’s nurturing a lifetime passion or finding an interesting way to spend a Saturday afternoon, you’re sure to find life as a student here both fun and fulfilling.

WPU & Bird Scooters

Our Campus is a Hotspot for Bird Scooters

William Peace University’s Student Government Association has partnered to bring Bird Scooters to campus! That means scooter “nests” are located all around campus for students to rent.

With just the push of a button, students can now be in the heart of Downtown Raleigh in just a few minutes, without the hassle of finding street parking or paying to park in a deck. Why walk when you can scooter to all of the great neighborhoods and businesses that we like to call our backyard?

Learn More about WPU & Bird

With Bird Scooters, WPU students now have more access to the vivacious neighborhoods that the University calls home, which includes Downtown Raleigh.
