Clubs, Activities & Recreation

Don’t let our small size fool you – you won’t find a more active community than ours.

There’s no shortage of ways to fill your time outside the classroom at Peace, whether you’re interested in learning, serving, broadening your horizons or just having fun.

From one-day events to membership organizations, to team sports – we’ve got you covered and then some.

Community Service

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.
