Greetings from Chambersburg!

Choosing a college can seem overwhelming, but my team and I are here to offer assistance in any way that we can. Please explore our site to find more information on the academic programs, athletics and student life at Wilson, as well as our proud history and traditions. Wilson students are held to high standards of academic and personal excellence, leading them to have a lasting and far-reaching impact after graduation.

If you’re interested in joining the thousands of students who have contributed to Wilson’s 150 year legacy, I encourage you to use the tabs on this page to determine which team member will be your personal guide from application to enrollment. Each admissions counselor works with students from particular Pennsylvania counties or other states. We would love the opportunity to hear your story and offer our assistance in discovering why Wilson is the right fit for you.

My team and I look forward to speaking with you soon!
