Founded in 1892, Walla Walla University is a private university affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Church. More than 1,900 students of diverse backgrounds attend WWU, which welcomes any student who desires an exceptional Christian education.

Walla Walla University is fully accredited and offers more than 100 areas of study in liberal arts, professional and technical programs. The largest undergraduate programs are nursing, engineering, business, biology and education. Graduate programs are offered in biology, education, psychology and social work.

Exceptional education at Walla Walla University begins with small classes, personalized attention and outstanding professors. Seventy-two percent of the University’s faculty hold doctoral degrees or other terminal degrees, bringing their expertise into small classes and labs. Unique study options include a general studies honors program, internships, traveling study tours, cooperative education and foreign language study through the Adventist Colleges Abroad program.

Walla Walla University is largely a residential life campus – about 75 percent of our students live in campus housing, enjoying a vibrant campus atmosphere designed around easy-to-access cultural, social and recreational activities. At the core of a student’s Walla Walla University experience is ample opportunity to find and nurture a relationship with Jesus Christ, including religion classes, corporate and personal worship opportunities, volunteer ministries, small groups, and community and mission service.

Nestled against the Blue Mountains in Southeast Washington State, Walla Walla University is headquartered on a 55-acre campus in College Place. The University also operates four satellite campuses, including a School of Nursing campus in Portland, Ore., a marine biology station near Anacortes, Wash., and School of Social Work and Sociology campuses in Missoula and Billings, Montana.
