Experience Academic Excellence


Since I've transferred here, I've found a ton of useful resources on campus like the Writing Center and the Science Enrichment Center; they've helped me so much! So have my professors. They took time to offer me advice about how to be successful in my new internship, even though I’d already completed their classes. That internship, which WP connected me with, is perfectly connected to my interests and is giving me so much real-world experience in my field.
