Wingate Hendersonville PA Program
Hendersonville, NC is a charming town nestled amid the beauty of Western North Carolina and 22 miles south of Asheville. While the population may be only 13,300, this isn’t a sleepy town. There’s a vibrant downtown filled with unique shops and excellent dining options. Historic neighborhoods and a busy event calendar contribute to the high quality of life.
Four distinct seasons create a variety of activities for students to unwind and explore the natural beauty of the area. The nearby Pisgah and DuPont forests provide students with the opportunity for hiking, whitewater rafting, biking, kayaking and fishing.
Wingate University established its first campus here in 2011 and the inaugural PA class entered in 2013. In August 2016, Wingate University Hendersonville moved into the new Hendersonville County Health Sciences Center. This state-of-the art facility combines higher education and comprehensive cancer care with partners Blue Ridge Community College and the Pardee Cancer Center. The stunning campus showcases sophisticated classrooms, innovative labs and comfortable study areas for students.
Students value the small class size, interaction with faculty and camaraderie with fellow classmates. Although students come from various states to attend Wingate Hendersonville, many accept jobs in western NC following graduation.
