WAU offers its students a rich multicultural campus experience.
US News and World Report rates WAU as one of the most diverse educational institutions in America with students from 40 states and 47 countries. Added to this is the backdrop of the rich learning environment of the nation’s capital and Washington, D.C., which includes over 200 foreign embassies and missions, the great museums of the Smithsonian, the Supreme Court, the House and Senate, the Library of Congress, and the White House. Whether it be government, advocacy, culture, public interest, law, or health care, Washington is at the epicenter. On campus, students find many ways to get involved in campus life, from student clubs and organizations to campus ministries and outreach programs, academics, the arts, outdoor recreation, cultural and community organizations, and numerous planned campus activities a year.
