Kimothy was a transfer student at WPU
“As a transfer student myself, I know what you may be thinking. That’s why I highly recommend that you come and schedule a tour of campus and see if it’s the right fit for you. I decided to come to WPU because I was impressed with its Communication Program and a lot more.”
