If you want to Major in a Great Life, it begins with attending a university where you can make your mark.

If you’re wondering about why you should choose to attend Wingate University, we’d like to show you why Wingate University adds up as a great choice for you.

3 = 1

Three campuses equal one university. Wingate University is proud of its three campuses, which serve nearly 3,200 graduate and undergraduate students. But we’re even more proud of the fact that no one is ever just a number. We strive to get to know you as an individual. It’s the best way to ensure we help you achieve your goals and your dreams.

3 in 10

That’s the number of our undergraduate students who are the first in their family to attend college. If that’s you, we understand how to help you make the transition from high school to college to become a successful student. Our approach works: On average, more first-year Bulldogs continue on to their second year than first-year students at other private colleges and universities across the country.

3 out of 4

Three out of four undergraduate students enjoy the full Wingate University experience by living on campus. Our residence halls are a home away from home for our students. Have you seen the update to Helms Hall? We take this responsibility seriously by offering ways to get involved, lead, learn and grow. When you can enjoy academics that prepare you for your future and an active campus life, why would you want to leave?


Whether you know what you want to major in or are excited to explore a number of possible majors, you’ll find we offer 35 undergraduate majors and 35 minors. If you’re looking ahead to graduate school, our 4+1 programs can put you on the fast track.
