You have the WILL to succeed. Now let’s POWER it forward.
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.
Think of our professors as Olympic Gold Medalists in Academics.

Thousands of scholarships available. Invaluable education. Great value.
Small can make a big difference.
Undergrads wrap their arms around the real world in state-of-the-art labs, classrooms and studios.
11,000 hours of community service in one year. Our students give back, big time.
Our campus is a vibrant community, set on 380 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.
80,000 square feet of classrooms and labs in our newest building.
Go Greek. Get social. Soak up some culture. Find your club or start one.
Get a little face time with your future employers.
Our 80,000 alumni are living proof that our students achieve greatness—on campus and out in the world.
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.
