Old Maid's Gate

The Long Blue Line Starts Here.

University life is about daring. It's about discovering who you really are, and then challenging yourself to become the person you always knew you would be.

The men and women that have passed through the gates of The W have gone on to become nurses and doctors, teachers, celebrated chefs, lawyers and judges, scientists, military officers, famed authors, and business executives. Each member the Long Blue Line, the men and women that have attended our university since 1884, started where you are now and dared to believe that they could achieve anything they dreamed.

We're glad you're here.
