Wilmington is a very nice school in which I am attending next year. I love the environment of the school. It feels safe when so visit my friends and I always feel welcomed. The dorms are really nice. I love that the classes are small. They are redoing a bunch of the facilities and I’m extremely excited to call that place my home for the next four years.

Wilmington College has helped me truly develop who I am, I could not be prouder of the person I have become just being at Wilmington for one year. My teachers prioritize me as an induvial, all my teachers known my major, hometown, where I work and known where i want to work in the future and will message we with an opportunity they know of to get me closer to my dreams. There is plenty of clubs and organizations to be apart of on campus that its easy to make friends.

I am a sophomore at Wilmington college. I am in the Athletic training program. The program is one of the best. The teachers are there for any help I may need. The course load is very heavy but I feel I am getting a great education. I have joined clubs and made a lot of friends. The dorms and campus food are average.

Richard

Wilmington college so far has been a great experience for me. I am glad I decided to live on campus. It has actually made me grow up by living on campus. I am currently a junior and I like the small classes I have. I am always able to speak to a professor if I need to. There is not a lot to do around town, but the campus is safe and the students make living on campus fun. There are several activities that the campus holds each month. It is a private college, so it is a little on the pricey side. Over 50% of the students are an athlete. It's division III so no sports scholarships. Many of the students work to pay for tuition and room and board.
