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.
Wilson College is a good college when it comes to the education you will receive, but as with everywhere there are pros and cons. Wilson's party life or activities is terrible. If you even think about having a party you run the risk of getting kicked out. You can have alcohol if you are of age of course, but if you get too loud because it is so small and stuck up, someone is going to complain. The campus is beautiful. The layout of the green and the buildings. Reminds me of Hogwarts in Harry Potter. Parking sucks because there is not enough parking spots in reference to how many people need to park. There is a creek which runs through campus that is very nice to sit by and work on homework or assignments.
