Students benefit from the positive, family-like atmosphere of WWC. The limited enrollment ensures that students receive more personal attention and grow in interpersonal skills. Experienced and caring staff members live on campus and provide students with guidance and direction. Visiting professors stay on campus for the week and are readily available for interaction in and out of the classroom.

There are many opportunities in nearby communities for students to participate in service projects and church ministry. Many social activities such as coffee houses, talent shows, movie and game nights, concerts, and banquets are planned throughout the year.

Contributing to the uniqueness of WWC is its recreational location. WWC utilizes other facilities, locations and outfitters in the north woods to provide a full array of recreational opportunities. The campus-organized program includes canoe trips, mountain biking day trips, ropes courses, hiking trips, waterskiing, indoor rock climbing, cross-country skiing, broomball, ice skating, downhill skiing and snowboarding. Other area recreational opportunities abound. These include fishing, backpacking, kayaking, horseback riding, camping, and snowmobiling.

The Israel study tour is not covered by regular tuition/fees and is an additional $2,500 (approximately).

Student Life Information

Conduct

Since IJS students are considered PBU students, all IJS students are under the authority of the Student Development Department of PBU in areas of conduct, dress, and dormitory life. They are expected to comply with PBU’s standards.

Due to the intensive nature of the program, prospective students should come prepared to give their full attention to the program. Fifteen to 20 hours of outside work weekly is the maximum allowed for full-time students (those taking three courses per module). Any exception to this regulation should be discussed with the director prior to acceptance as a student. Students who need to work more than 20 hours per week may extend the academic program over two years so they will not fall under the work restriction.

Chapel

Each Friday IJS meets for its own “family” chapel. The purpose of IJS chapel is to stimulate growth, encourage deeper fellowship among the school family, and worship the Lord together. The IJS chapel program is varied, with speakers from outside and inside the school and opportunities for testimony and group prayer. The emphasis is on informality and spontaneity as well as careful presentation of the Word and its application to godly living. Each Monday and Wednesday, IJS students attend the regular undergraduate Chapel service.

Student Ministry

To implement learning, every student must be involved in some form of student ministry. Friends of Israel staff members are available to guide students in evangelistic outreaches on college campuses, in monthly fellowships, hospital visitation, Bible studies, and in unique opportunities for ministry with Jewish people.
