One-on-one time and engagement with professors is priceless and exactly what you will be given as a student at WPU. Many mentor and leadership opportunities are available at WPU.
Coming to William Peace University, I get to have a lot of one on one time with my professors. And that was a major deal for me in the theatre fields, getting to know my directors and my teachers and my voice teachers. So having that custom experience here, having that one on one time is priceless to me.
We have a lot of mentorship opportunities. As a faculty member, I'm helping students out with projects. I'm in the lab working with the students and engaging with their collaborative and individual projects. We also bring in the seniors into our lower level classes and get them to talk about their experiences to show the incoming students kind of what to expect as they finish their curriculum. We try to encourage the students to do as much as they can to get the best experience they can.
Your first year you get put in a First-Year Seminar class, where you get a peer mentor and my peer mentor was essential for me to get involved on campus. She encouraged me to apply for Student Government where I was on Student Government for multiple years Vice President, President, Freshman Rep... but then that just expanded into Green Team in 15 Below into job opportunities as well as an Orientation Leader over the summer and then Student Coordinator. We have a huge involvement fair every single year called, "Purpose at Peace." And that is where you get to learn about all the different clubs, all the different majors, different employment opportunities, and internship opportunities. So there's so much to do on campus and off of campus that I just highly encourage anyone to get involved.
