Dear Wilson Parents,
In just a few short weeks, your students will join us on the Wilson College Campus. For some of you, this will be your daughter or son’s first time to live in our community. For others, this will be a reunion for your student after a summer of internships, travel, adventure, and work. Regardless of whether this is their first time to join us or their last time, their departure from your home to our community can prove to be a hard transition for them and for you.
The transition that encompasses the college years can be challenging for students and families alike, and this is exactly why the Student Development Division is in place at Wilson College. We are here to help your students in everyday life through campus dining, residential life, student activities, religious life, career development, and campus security. We help our unique populations through international student affairs, the Women with Children program, and the Child Care Center. We are also here to help your students through the tough times through our experienced therapists in counseling services and our nurse in health services. You can check out all of our individual services on our webpage at http://www.wilson.edu/student-life/index.aspx.
We want you to know that we all put your student first, and we are here to help and support her/him through each and every day in our community here at Wilson. It is our mission to help all our students to feel a part of this unique community that values them as individuals, supports them as scholars, and prepares them for life beyond the Wilson gates.
We look forward to seeing you and talking with you and your student very soon!
Mary Beth Williams, Ph.D.
Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students
