William Peace University Reviews

The experience I've had at Peace with my courses has been challenging and hard. Some of them took up plenty of my time due to the information that was given. My professors played a huge part in helping me when needed. When I needed assistance they were available to help me with any particular area to help me understand the material much better. The class style is extremely unique because of the characteristics of the professors and students. The students are comfortable with the learning atmosphere and we find ourselves sitting in the same unassigned seats daily! Some may have the desk in a circle or straight in an line. The class ratio is fifteen to one unless it was a course such as biology that was a class of high demand and required more class slots.
I have had the wonderful opportunity thus far to have the most effective diverse experience with the professors at William Peace. During my first year experience I claimed much success and I owe half of that success to my professors. I credit their accountability and teaching methods to create a atmosphere to where all students are able to learn and just having the one on one personal time with them makes the experience even more greater. I am very grateful for the professors at Peace because they take a lot of time and effort to work with their students, they have a passion to teach and create environments where all students are able to thrive and feel accepted.
The prospects of a student having a career after graduating from William Peace is incredibly high. As of this year 97% of graduates who graduate from Peace are employed. Graduating and obtaining a degree from Peace opens the door to incredible opportunities. Peace creates and develops its students for their future standing on awesome principles and on a promise to believe, William Peace gives students opportunity for change.
