Dear Wilson Parents and Families,
As the fall semester ends, emotions and caffeine use are both high around campus. It has been a fun first semester for me on campus, and I have enjoyed getting to know you and your students through all the sports, classes, and special events that Wilson has had to offer. We broke ground on the new John Stewart Memorial Library back in October, and it continues to be fun watching that project come together.
As we prepare for our unique “J Term” and spring semester, I want to make sure that you put our upcoming Family Weekend on your calendar. Family Weekend will be February 13-14, 2015, and it will contain many opportunities for you to get to be a part of your students’ academic, social, and athletic activities over those days. We will be sending an invitation to you in early January.
Until we see you in February, please know that here in student development, we want 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.
I want to wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season, and may all your travels and experiences fill you with love and wonder.
Dean Mary Beth
