Tour WSU-Rochester

Take a virtual visit to the WSU-Rochester campus buildings where you’ll have classes and access student resources.

In the Community
Our programs get students immersed in practical, hands-on experiences, while building their professional network and making a positive impact too.

You’ll have the chance to work with prestigious companies like Mayo Clinic and IBM as well as community organizations and local school districts though internships, career-immersion programs, on-site professional trainings, and service-learning opportunities.

In the Classroom

We value providing you with experiential learning opportunities right in our community.

But hands-on experience doesn’t just come from being out in the field—it comes from the opportunities we’ve built into our on-campus learning as well.

Nursing Simulation
Our nursing simulation labs on each campus allow students to practice care in a safe and controlled environment. Students get to work with a range of high-fidelity manikins, including newborn, infant, child, adult, and a birthing adult.
STEM Village
The STEM Village in Rochester provides access to workshops and a lending library of STEM materials, allowing our students and local educators to become better prepared to teach science, technology, engineering and math.
