From Wilson College

Wilson College has a student-focused environment that lets you explore, discover and achieve your goals. From first-year programs that ease your college transition to successfully completing work within your major during senior year, Wilson provides an individual education that is focused on you. From leadership roles to athletics, research to clubs, our students craft their own experience.

Wilson is known for the quality of its faculty and academic programs. What we don’t offer are enormous survey classes.

    I like that the College is a smaller campus, which gives it more of a community-like feel. The professors and students are all really nice, and are more than happy to give a helping hand. Being an International Student, I found that everyone was really welcoming and supportive, which was really nice!

    I love the VMT program. While it has its own issues and drama, the professors are amazing and the animals are great. It's very difficult, but hands-on. You better learn fast or switch majors! Cheaters beware: get caught, and you'll automatically fail that test until Joint Honor Council hears your plea.
    I am a second year nursing student. My first year was fabulous, I loved it. However, this year has been pretty rocky and frustrating for me. I do not feel like my concerns have been heard or that I am learning in my classes due to the flipped classroom technique. I am becoming dissatisfied with my education here at Wilson College.
