Wilson-a coeducational liberal arts college-provides a rigorous academic program with small classes that give students the opportunity to work closely with faculty in a collaborative environment that encourages students to push themselves and to succeed.
The College strives to create an open, welcoming community where relationships formed with classmates and professors can endure throughout their lifetime. Curiosity and enthusiasm to take advantage of all that Wilson offers are essential in preparing students to make a difference in their careers and in their communities.
All Wilson students, faculty and staff adhere to the school's honor principle, which creates a community where personal responsibility and individual success, both in and out of the classroom, are highly valued. Wilson's traditions serve as bonds that join the community together. From Convocation to Commencement, they are an important part of every student's experience.
The College-founded in 1869-is affiliated with the Presbyterian Church, but is open to students of all religions and faiths. The student body in fall 2013 was 746, representing 23 states and 13 foreign countries. Wilson's student-to-faculty ratio is 10-to-1.
