Join Dr. Michael Cornelius for a conversation about majoring in English and writing.

As an added bonus, Dr. Cornelius is encouraging all registered students to send him a piece of their writing ahead of time—a short story, a couple of poems, pieces written for your school newspaper, a chapter from that book you plan to finish someday—whatever you like! Dr. C will end the session with a personal feedback workshop for each student. Dr. C. is himself the author of 20 books and has been a finalist for several national literary prizes—though, as he likes to remind everyone, he has never actually won any of them. More details about this opportunity will be e-mailed to you after registering for the event.

A Note about COVID-19 and Admissions to Wilson College

At Wilson College, we understand searching for and choosing the right college can be very stressful. There are tons of things to think about before making a decision … is the college in the right location, does it offer the major you are interested in, is there enough financial aid available, what’s campus life like, how’s the food, what’s it like to live on campus or can I be a commuter? And the list goes on and on. And, to complicate matters even more, you are trying to make this decision during a COVID-19 global pandemic. Yikes! It is daunting, but it will be OK. We want you to know that the Wilson College admissions team is here for you. We will walk you through the process every virtual step of the way.
