Why WP?


What stands out most for me about WP is the support system. I haven’t just found a supportive teacher or two; there are many valued staff members that have helped me push past the challenges that come with college. I now work at the Writing Center as a student ambassador and consultant for people that need tutoring. It’s refreshing to see that you can make an impact on those who are in the position you were once in.
