Not only did students get the speak with advisors, professors and faculty, they also got the opportunity to speak with WPU President Dr. Brian Ralph, who attended the event.
“This not only gives our students the opportunity to see all of our resources on campus, but also a lot of different community organizations,” Ralph said. “We really believe students who are engaged on and off campus are the ones who are going to be the most successful.”
