The Pacer Performance Center
Constructed in the spring of 2017, the Pacer Performance Center features Rogue fitness equipment and other free-weight training options for WPU student-athletes and the community as a whole.
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, through a non-profit organization called Team Impact, four-year-old Tucker Jordan, and other kids like him, become a part of something bigger on the WPU campus.
Student Showcase is a conference-style event which showcases our students’ research presentations, performances, poetry readings, debates, cross-disciplinary creative projects, and much more.
