Review William Peace University
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.
I really love the campus and the area it it is. It is situated in beautiful downtown Raleigh & there is always lots of things going on or things to get into and I love that. I also enjoy the different performances and various activities put on by the clubs at school. Plus there is always an opportunity to do community service which I am very fond of. I also enjoy most of my classes, which is surprising. I look forward to going to them, even though I may be a little less excited for my morning classes lol. Overall I really love this school & I think it is the perfect fit for me as well as many others.
