Experience Academic Excellence


My experience at WP has been life altering. Academically, I have been able to expand my horizons by pursuing a major and minor that I am passionate about, working on an Honors thesis, and preparing to apply to graduate school. Each academic and extracurricular opportunity that WP has given me has allowed for personal growth, development of life long skills, and memories that will last a lifetime.
