At William Paterson University, we continuously empower our students to achieve the goals
they set for themselves. Here are some of the ways we help our students succeed.

Thousands of scholarships available. Invaluable education. Great value.

11,000 hours of community service in one year. Our students give back, big time.
Our campus is a vibrant community, set on 407 wooded suburban acres.
You can almost bite the Big Apple from here.
From intramurals or club sports to intercollegiate athletics, the WP community offers something for everyone.
We’re known for helping low-income students graduate into good-paying jobs.
Go Greek. Get social. Soak up some culture. Find your club or start one.
Get a little face time with your future employers.
Our 82,000 alumni are living proof that our students achieve greatness—on campus and out in the world.
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.
