UPDATE: April 15, 2020

Dear Families of Wilson Students,

The Wilson College leadership team continues to meet regularly to plan and prepare for the continued operation of the College during this very uncertain time. Given the progression and uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic, the most prudent decision is to delay Commencement and not formally celebrate together on May 17. Rather, we will mark the occasion remotely, and more information on that virtual ceremony is forthcoming.  Formal, in-person Commencement for the Class of 2020 will take place during Homecoming and Family Weekend, October 23-25, 2020.

Those of you who have students who are either still in residence or have belongings in the residence halls may be wondering when our formal move out for the end of the year will be.  Unfortunately, we are still waiting on information from the Governor’s Office on when we can hold that process. 

egardless, we are moving forward for the 2020-2021 academic year, and students are in the midst of course registration and room selection.  If your student has questions on registration, please have them reach out to our Registrar, Jean Hoover, at jhoover@wilson.edu, and all questions regarding room selection should go to our director or residential life, Ryan Coll, at ryan.coll@wilson.edu.  

Please encourage your students to check their college email and the Wilson Portal often for updates. This is an unprecedented time. Please know we are working diligently through some of the finer details and will communicate them when available. Make sure to bookmark the College’s webpage on COVID-19, as it has the most up-to-date information on college operations.

If you have questions, please reach out to me via email, and I will respond with answers as I am able.  

Take care, and stay well!
Dean Mary Beth
