  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
Wilson College is a small school so everybody knows everybody, and you will see a familiar face everywhere you go. We form friendships right away and there is a lot of community involvement. Our professors are willing to help any way they can when a student asks for help whether it be school work, academic advising, counseling, etc.
Student Class of 2013
Wilson College is currently in financial crisis and students have been rallying to protect this school's future. I am inspired by the history of this school and the reaction from students and faculty to protect it. Wilson is a girl's school and in its heart always will be!
