Undergraduate Research

Some universities save research opportunities for graduate students only. That's not the case at Wilkes, where undergraduates can engage in meaningful research, often starting freshman year.

At Wilkes you'll find the offerings of a large university and the close-knit, mentoring culture of a small college.

Our faculty and staff are committed to your success.

Jessica

Commitment to Caring

For senior Jessica Turnitza, her most impactful lesson at Wilkes University came from a change in plans. After graduating from Pottsville Area High School, Turnitza chose Wilkes to pursue three of her passions: nursing, swimming and Air Force ROTC. She was heartbroken when a medical disqualification ended her military aspirations. Then a former major told her, “Either find a way or make a way.”
