First Year Experience

You only get one first year of college – so let’s make the best of it!

The purpose of the First Year Experience is to engage students in the academic and social communities of Peace by focusing on student success as well as best practices of effective students.

Through the First Year Experience, WPU students are immersed in the University’s rich traditions and academic programs. Here are some of the experiences that students can expect to be a part of:

  • Pacer Camp
  • Pathways to Peace
  • Matriculation Ceremony
  • Academic Convocation
  • PDS 100
  • Traditions Dinner
  • And much more!
