Our students truly care about the community. From service projects in the Appalachian Mountains, to assisting in the fight against Cancer, or packing thousands of meals for the homeless and less fortunate – our students get it done.
For example, rather than spending time relaxing on the couch at home on Fall Break, William Peace University students go above and beyond, spending their time helping others.
Student Showcase is a conference-style event which showcases our students’ research presentations, performances, poetry readings, debates, cross-disciplinary creative projects, and much more.
