The education is okay. I do not like that I must have an internship in order to graduate. In order to pay for the insane cost of the tuition I must have three jobs during my time at Peace. That causes me to have little time for my school work, let alone time for an internship. Also, I do not like that books are included in my tuition. Professors usually do not use the books they assign anyway. I believe I am receiving a decent education, but the cost is ridiculous. I do love that it is a small school so I am given more attention than I would at a bigger school.
William Peace University has been a wonderful experience for me as a student, it is a friendly atmosphere the professors are very professional they make sure that every student understand the material that they are teaching. Campus life at Peace is fun and safe the Campus Police are always patrolling the campus ensuring student and staff safety, Dorms are very clean and are inspected weekly, the food that is served to the students is delicious and the cafeteria is clean and spacious, I am very happy with my Choice to attend William Peace University.
