Originally, I was attracted to Wilson College because of the gymnastics team. After I visited I fell in love with the atmosphere, the small campus and the awesome traditions.

Wilson is like a second home to me—I love it here. The history and the traditions help to bring everyone together as a community. It feels more like an extended family because everyone knows everyone else.

I guess that the best way to describe being at a women’s college is that it’s “liberating.” You don’t spend time worrying about impressing anyone. You just feel comfortable about being yourself and accepting everyone around you.

I came here expecting to take my classes, compete in gymnastics and maybe join one or two clubs. I’ve done so much more in my two semesters here! I joined the soccer and lacrosse teams and am a member of five or six clubs. I’m doing so many new things that I never imagined I’d be doing when I came to college, but I’m so glad that I am.

One of the best things about Wilson is the small classes because it really lets you get to know your professors. I’ve participated in many activities around campus where my professors are also taking part. They really get to know you and care about you as an individual. One time at a softball game, a friend of mine ran into her professor, who was more than happy to answer her questions about a project that was due soon. You don’t always need to make an appointment to get the help you need.

This is MY Wilson College.
