Welcome to Waynesburg University!

Wondering what the fingerprints in those bricks are all about? (If you’re not sure what I’m referring to, look to the top of this page.) Those are the mark of Waynesburg University students from more than 100 years ago! Dedicated students decided it was time for a new building on campus and figured maybe they ought to just shape the bricks themselves. Well, that’s exactly what they did. Just as God the Father is a potter, constantly shaping us—his clay—students helped to form 803,000 bricks to build what is now historic Miller Hall.

It’s those types of stories that define Waynesburg University and its students. At Waynesburg, you’ll grow not only academically as a student, but also holistically as a person of God. Your four years here will be a constant transformation, during which you’ll discover how to be the type of servant leader who influences positive change on the world around you—just as those driven students did more than a century ago.

Now, you may be saying to yourself, “That’s exactly what I’m looking for, but I still need to learn my craft, get a job and—ahem—be able to pay for this whole life-changing experience. No worries; we’ve got you covered there, as well:

  • U.S. News & World Report Best Value School for the North

  • 96% job & graduate school placement within a year

  • Nearly $11,000 below the national average for private, non-profit, four-year colleges

  • 100% of academic departments offering hands-on learning, research and/or internship opportunities

  • $13,000 average gift aid per year, per student
