Wilson Life

Whether you live on or off campus, Wilson College is your second home, and your fellow students are your second family. We are a true community, where students encourage each other, faculty members really care, and you have the opportunity to express yourself through everything you do.

Form lifelong friendships through traditions such as “Odds and Evens.” Find new interests or build on existing ones through activities and clubs like the fencing club, choir, environmental club, Orchesis dance ensemble or yearbook. Be a Wilson Phoenix and compete in one of seven NCAA Division III sports.

Whatever your interests, whatever you need, the Office of Student Development offers information and support. Classes take place for a few hours a day, but college is a 24/7 experience. We’re here to help you make the most of it so you can move ahead with confidence for the rest of your life.
