With a full-time enrollment of almost 2,200, spanning 20 states and a dozen countries, there is no typical Wilkes University student. That's why Wilkes has created a unique educational approach to engage students on a personal level to help them discover their full potential. Through guidance and encouragement, our University helps them find the course of study that challenges and hones their abilities through hands-on experiences. They'll never be pigeonholed.
They'll be engaged by an entire community to get at what's really inside—their talents, passions and goals. Then we show them where their potential can take them. And while here, they'll enjoy the ride. This community revolves around our students. They get the feel of a metropolitan school but with all the comforts of a close-knit college campus, just a few hours from New York City, Philadelphia and Washington DC. They can cheer on our football team, grab coffee with a professor, and walk to their internship at the courthouse—all in the same afternoon. While here, they will build lifelong relationships while developing the skills to succeed far beyond college. Ninety-seven percent of Wilkes grads are employed or enrolled in graduate school within one year of graduating. With results like that, a Wilkes degree truly enriches lives.
