From Wilson College

Wilson College has a student-focused environment that lets you explore, discover and achieve your goals.

From leadership roles to athletics, research to clubs, our students craft their own experience.

    Wilson is a smaller college that has many opportunities to offer. It is only as fun as you make it! Many people are quick to judge the school, but it is only because they do not participate, and contribute to the well being and livelihood of the school. The college has a beautiful library that has many spaces for studying and support groups. Almost of the professors are extremely supportive and care about the education. They only want the best for their students as long as the students are putting in the effort. Help is always around, and Wilson even has stress support groups!

    Very friendly campus, and dog approved! Professors are willing to go above and beyond to help students and staff make the college transition easy. Highly suggest!
    College to me isn’t just a place where I have to work hard and study all the time to get my degree to help me get a job and in turn pay off my college bills. Now having spent years as a college student I understand that when going to college comes a whole lot of responsibility and independence. Not only do I get the freedom to take classes of my choice and ones that also peak my interest and push me closer to my desired career. To me, college stands for getting a higher education to help me succeed later on in my life and throughout these four years of my life and college is going to help me find out the type of person I am going to become. Therefore my Wilson College education means the world to me and it is going to be something I can’t put a price on, because it will be so valuable and priceless to me.
