Seek your dream… in a BIG way!

BIG WEEKEND :  April 1-2

Big Weekend - April 1-2

Our annual spring preview event gives you the chance to sit-in on classes, meet professors and administrators, interview for scholarships, apply for admission (with having your application fee waived) and financial aid, secure housing, try-out for athletic teams, audition for music and fine arts opportunities and learn all about the WBU Pioneer spirit!
Not only that but if you've already been admitted for the Fall 2016 semester (as an incoming freshman or transfer student), you will be able to register for fall courses... even before current WBU students are able to do so!
