Student life is everything that makes up the experience at William Jessup University. From playing intramural sports, discussing theology with professors, to casually playing guitar in the quad, WJU offers an exciting and challenging experience that will shape students into the leader God has called them to be.

For students to be prepared as Christian leaders, they must continue to develop integrity and Christian character. The right balance of hard work, academic study, spiritual discipline, relationship building, mentoring, and involvement in service is important to develop early on in the university experience.

As a university, we are committed to see:

  • A community where intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and physical dimensions of life are developed and challenged;
  • A positive and safe atmosphere where students may confront values, opinions, ideas, and cultures which may be new and different;
  • An encouraging environment for students to serve while discovering their gifts and abilities.
