Their professors seem to be nice. I sat in on a class, and I enjoyed it. The classes are small (sometimes your only one of two students in the class) but the teachers are engaged. They will talk to you directly and get you involved in the conversation. The teacher I had in my sit-in-class taught us by making us think and asking us questions before giving us the answers. They do lack technology. Maybe its just me, because I grew up in a highly technological high school, but that was the first thing I noticed. You will be learning in...

    Quiet, peaceful, and close-knit. Everyone knows everyone and for the most part is such a wonderful school.

    Peace is a smaller private school with lots to offer academically. In addition, the university feels very intimate and offers a strong sense of community. Each department places a strong emphasis on internships so students are undoubtedly prepared for the workforce after graduation.

    William Peace University is a nice small school for those who want a small classroom setting. The campus is very small and everyone knows each other. Also, the classroom sizes aren't big at all and the classroom setting is similar to a high school classroom.

    This is my first year and between the staff, and small student numbers, the experience has been wonderful. I do hope to stay here all four years. And the campus continues to grow.

    Great place to be for those looking for a smaller school. Classes are personable and professors know students by name. Students aren't known as numbers.

    William Peace is a very diverse university. Teachers here are on a first name basis and very friendly. It's a small campus but it has the biggest warm welcome to anyone new on campus.

    When I came to Peace as a legacy student, I believed that I was making a significant but worthwhile investment in my future. Since the arrival of Debra Townsley in 2010, the cancellation of my major, Graphic Design (which was done after written and verbal promises about the viability of that particular major were made), and the firing of 6 professors, both tenured and untenured, I questioned both my decision and the actions of the members of the WPU Board of Trustees.

    Save yourself the money, time, heart ache, and just go somewhere else. The administration has proven over and over again that current students do not matter. You might be convinced to come here because of the fabulous financial aid--I was. Don't be, please. Public school is cheaper in the long run and you will get a much better education.
