    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!

    This was my first year in any type of college setting after graduating high school, and I was a bit nervous starting out because in many ways it's very different, but similar to high school. But with a school like Wilson College, which is small but yet very welcoming, have made the transition easier than expected. I am very pleased with my school and the classes they provide, giving me the necessary tools to prepare me for my major of choice. I could do without some of the struggles with the registrar, but it hasn't dampened the college experience yet, and here's to going all the way into graduation.
    Wilson College was an amazing experience. The people on campus were very nice, the buildings and facilities were clean and great!
