Wilson College

Wilson is committed to providing our students and their families with value in a college education.

Wilson College was founded in 1869 as a college for women by the Rev. Tryon Edwards and the Rev. James W. Wightman. The original charter was granted on March 24, 1869. Sarah Wilson, for whom the College is named, provided the initial gift for the establishment of the College. She was the first living woman in the United States to endow a college for women.

We’ve evolved from a pioneer in women’s education to one of the “Best Value” schools for women and men in U.S. News & World Report’s annual college rankings guide. For nearly 150 years, we’ve been proud to provide education and resources that respond to changing student needs.
