I first decided to visit Wilson College because of its VMT program. I attended an open house and I fell in love with the campus.

All of the traditions were really interesting to learn about. Everyone on the campus I met that day seemed so friendly and willing to help. None of the other campuses I visited were quite like Wilson. After understanding more about the four-year VMT program that day, it seemed almost wrong for me not to become a student here.

Wilson, to me, seems very tight-knit—with all of the students and the low student-to-faculty ratio—and I enjoy this. I like having a lot of people I can talk to and get along with without having to worry about
the normal things I had to worry about in high school. Whenever I describe an event or a Wilson tradition to one of my friends back home, they tell me that my college sounds completely awesome. That is what Wilson is for me—simply awesome.

It didn’t take long for me to adjust to being at a college for women. Originally, I thought that it would. Not having boys around all of the time doesn’t bother me at all. I actually think it would be weird to start
attending a co-ed college. I’ve made so many great friends here that I don’t know what I would do without them.

Wilson has fulfilled what I wanted and expected when I went to college. I am obtaining a great and rigorous education that is sometimes stressful but really, what college isn’t stressful? I have a great set of friends who are interested in the same things that I am. All of my professors have been wonderful. There have been many times when they have helped me out when I needed it. I am happy with my experiences here at Wilson and for me, that’s enough.

I would tell someone who is exploring Wilson for themselves that you will never be bored here. There are so many things that are available to do on campus if you choose to get involved. You are not just a number here. Your professors will surely learn your name in a matter of days (although sometimes a few of them need more time) and most of them take time to find out what interests you. College is not as scary as it seems when you are in high school.

This is MY Wilson College.
