Walla Walla University is a Seventh-day Adventist institution of higher education founded in 1892. On its five campuses throughout the Pacific Northwest, WWU cultivates environments of excellence, generosity, beauty, and Christian faith.
Exceptional education at WWU begins with the integration of faith and learning in small classes offering personalized attention from dedicated professors. The university seeks to prepare students for successful lives and careers through rigorous internships, global study tours and partnerships, and hands-on learning in rigorous academic settings. WWU is fully accredited and offers more than 100 areas of study in professional and technical programs and the liberal arts. The small campus setting enriches student learning through regular interaction across disciplines.
The residential campus environment at WWU fosters a tight-knit, socially-engaged, active community. During the week, faculty, staff, and students pursue curiosities together and on the weekends rest, worship, and explore together. At the core of the WWU experience is the opportunity to discover and nurture a relationship with Jesus Christ in classes and through personal devotions and group worship experiences, volunteer ministries, and local and global service.
The headquarters of WWU is located on an 83-acre campus in the Walla Walla Valley in Southeastern Washington state where cultural arts, vibrant dining, and recreational opportunities abound. The university also operates four satellite campuses, including a School of Nursing in Portland, Oregon, a marine biology station near Anacortes, Washington, and School of Social Work and Sociology campuses in Missoula and Billings, Montana.
