Beginning fall 2019, WP is launching an innovative new First-Year Experience Program to help incoming freshmen transition to college life.

This multifaceted program of structured academic and student support services will guide new students as they build the skills to balance their University coursework with other activities and responsibilities.

Will. Power. 101

Weekly student success workshops that provide personal direction to help students navigate college, including:

  • Study skills and test-taking
