Walla Walla University is here to help you achieve them.
At WWU you can chase the goals you set for yourself. You'll probably even chase goals you didn't even know you had—discovering opportunities, making plans, and achieving new goals as you go.
Your classes will train you with the knowledge and skills to back up what you decide to pursue. ASWWU, your student association, will provide real-world opportunities to practice those skills. The Student Development Center will connect you with internships, job search preparation, and our broad network of alumni. Professors and mentors will help guide you through the obstacles that always come up on the way. But you'll be ready. You'll be prepared and equipped to chase those goals out in the world beyond college.
Whether you want to start your own podcast, patent your own design, or open your own practice, you’ll find an enthusiastic, diverse community from which to launch.
Expand your thinking.
Collaborate with world-class faculty at a fully-accredited university to expand your thinking and experience life-changing ideas that will inspire you to live the life you imagine. Learn in the context of faith from faculty who will prepare you to speak intelligently from a Christian perspective in a secularized world.
Launch your career.
Our students start their careers at top companies and organizations across the country. We provide access to countless opportunities for experiential learning and career development including internships, co-ops, leadership on- and off-campus, community service, and more, giving our graduates a platform to launch into a successful and fulfilling career.
Connect with God
Grow in your walk with God. You’ll find a faith family at WWU where you can grow in your spiritual walk with support from the University Church, the School of Theology, the Chaplain’s Office, and caring faculty and staff. You’ll experience genuine community and interactions with others who are on a similar journey walking with God. Our mission is to magnify the love of Jesus in our hearts, on our campus, and to our world.
Engage in service.
Practicing kindness is part of the culture at WWU. Giving time and attention to the causes that matter most to you can make you happier, can relieve stress, and creates a better community for everyone to enjoy. Students at WWU volunteer for organizations such as the Blue Mountain Humane Society, the Christian Aid Center Rescue Mission, and Amnesty International. At WWU, you will find opportunities to use your unique skills and abilities in service that will help you grow and find a new sense of self-esteem while you relieve suffering and contribute to the wellbeing of others.
Love where you live.
It’s not just your research lab, it’s your outdoor paradise. The Pacific Northwest houses some of the greatest natural wonders of the world. It has also long attracted independent, motivated, and ambitious people like you. The kind of people who launched startups like Boeing, Nordstrom, Starbucks, Amazon, Microsoft, Zappos—you get the idea. In a clean, green paradise, our students enjoy proximity to both urban and remote adventure landscapes.
How you live on campus—where you eat, where you work out, how you spend your free time—is integral to your happiness and success in college. WWU supports you as a whole person through a range of on-campus services.
