Be Yourself

Wilson students discover the extraordinary within

From freshman year through graduation, the entire Wilson experience is geared toward creating self-awareness. The journey begins with a safe campus and a small-college atmosphere where you know your classmates, know your professors and you can begin to know yourself. The century-old Wilson Honor Principle builds a foundation of integrity, responsibility and respect ─ respect for the individual you are now and respect for the individual you will become.

Within this supportive environment, you can explore a challenging liberal arts curriculum to find your inspiration among majors ranging from fine arts and environmental studies to psychology and veterinary medical technology.

No matter what type of student you are, no matter what you choose to study, Wilson College will change your life. Through our transformative experience, you learn to trust and believe in others so you can learn to trust and believe in yourself. At Wilson College, you can be yourself.

Wilson is one of those places where everyone can be who they are, step up into leadership positions and have their voices heard.
