Why WP?

Pretty much anything you’d want to do, you can do at WP. The professors want you to be curious and try things, and they’ll tailor everything to you to make that happen. I got to tour all over Italy with the University’s chamber choir; I’ve done three semesters of student teaching where I got to see what I’ve learned in class come to life; and I’ve even gotten jobs in my major from my professors recommending me to employers.
