Student Spotlight

For more than 80 years, Wilkes University has provided students with academic excellence through mentoring and personalized attention - values that only Wilkes, a small, private university, can offer. Now, those same values are available in Arizona with Wilkes University Mesa.

“I was pleased to discover that Wilkes offered a low residency writing program that mimicked the writer's life, promoted literary citizenship, and provided one-to-one mentorship. It was a program tailored for the whole-writer, not parts.”

- Austin Bennett, Creative Writing M.F.A student
