Jackets Graduate With the Experience They Need to Succeed
“Between my education and my experience working as a student at the Helpdesk at Waynesburg University, I learned the essential skills to be successful in maintaining and managing technology for an entire school district.”
Mike Wright, Technology Coordinator for Edison Local School District
“The quality education I received from Waynesburg University helped me to become informed leaders amongst my peers.”
Zach Sargent, RN at Ruby Memorial Hospital
“Not many college grads can say they have had the same experiences as me. In these past four years, I have traveled to a foreign country, jumped out of airplanes, met with some of the highest ranking officials, became a United States Army Officer, made lifelong friends, completed a Bachelor of Arts degree and discovered more about myself than I could imagine. Waynesburg University was the right choice.”
Courtney Parker, Second Lieutenant in the United States Army
“My time at Waynesburg University prepared me to tackle graduate studies and a professional life in many ways. Small class sizes and outstanding chemistry professors made the transition to life as a graduate student a little easier. Furthermore, WU provided me with ample opportunities to connect with professionals in the chemistry field. I am very fortunate that the chemistry department promoted opportunities that allowed students to travel to conferences and attend professional meetings in the city of Pittsburgh, an opportunity that I discovered not many universities encourage. WU and the opportunities afforded to me played a crucial role in helping me get to where I am today and will guide me to future successes.”
