I transferred to Wilson after spending one year at another college. When I visited, I fell in love with the equestrian center and the academic programs.

I also liked that there are multiple riding teams that work together to allow as much inclusion as possible. I was attracted to the size of the college, which I find ideal for me because it promotes close relationships between students, faculty and staff. Although there are many riding and other sports teams, there is an overarching focus on academic excellence.

For me, Wilson provides a very comfortable environment. My living quarters are great and the campus is very picturesque and lush. In my experiences this past year, I found students, faculty members and staff to be very supportive of every individual. Wilson is a learning and living community. Being at a women’s college makes it easier for me to focus on myself and who I am rather than worrying about how others perceive me. I find this atmosphere nurturing, yet challenging. This is a supportive community where women thrive both in and out of the classroom.

My experience at Wilson this past year makes me say that this college has fulfilled needs I didn’t know I had. I wanted to be at a college where I could work toward my academic degree, improve
my riding skills and be able to compete as a member of a riding team. Wilson not only provided these opportunities, but also taught me leadership, networking, social and management skills.

Wilson College is a supportive community where women thrive as students and as people. I encourage prospective students to visit us and talk with students and our professors. For anyone who
loves horses, you will see that the campus equestrian facilities are a dream come true.
