Experience Academic Excellence


From the Science Enrichment Center where I gain mentorship, friends, and study skills, to the Writing Center that proofreads every paper I hand in, to the freshman Will.Power.101 class that teaches us “how to do college,” to the professors who deepen my drive to learn through their constant support: WP places every tool for success on a silver platter.
