University Connections Program

University Connections Logo

Welcome to William Paterson University and the University Connections Program!  

The intent of the University Connections Program is to provide academic support and opportunities for engagement with Campus Life to all residential students at William Paterson University. The program consists of a number of initiatives that have been designed to provide support to all resident students as well as specific interest groups that make up the overall resident student population. 

University Connections consists of the following programs:

Seven Weeks To Success

This is a program designed to assist new students in connecting with one another and the campus community during the beginning of your first semester at WPU! See the Fall 2016 Seven Weeks to Success calendar booklet below.

Transfer Student Initiative

The Transfer Student Initiative consists of a number of efforts that were developed to enhance the on-campus living experience for transfer students. From living together on our transfer floor to attending events planned in collaboration with the Transfer Student Experience Office, our transfers are enjoying their experiences living on campus at WPU.
