Wilson is a very unique place that isn't for everyone, most people strongly advise one to visit before committing. That being said, I didn't visit and attending Wilson was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. The student body and faculty and staff is a community like no other. The triad gives you experiences you don't have elsewhere. If you don't have a strong sense of responsibility you can easily cultivate it here, very few make it out without some sense of responsibility. You have the chance to make the most out of any possible college experience. The area is very rich culturally and allows you to take your education in whatever direction you choose. The staff work with you to help you do exactly what you want to do.

The good: hiking trails, the work program, service, the river, my classes, vegan food, local food, downtown asheville is just a short drive away (if you have a car or a friend with a car), nice people, community is very accepting of all backgrounds and all identities. The bad: no community feel living in Sunderland, no shuttles or buses from campus to downtown or black mountain or even grocery store, some weekends there is not much going on party wise, no vegan pizza in Glad, expensive tuition, very small student body compared to most colleges.

Wilson is a pretty special place. Everyone here knows you and you're not a number. There's open dialogue between students, faculty, and staff. They're all happy to help with anything you have an issue with, from tutoring and courses to just making friends and feeling supported. The campus itself is beautiful. We're in a valley so whichever way you look there are gorgeous mountains, and we own hundreds of acres of them so they're completely available to hike, sunbathe, explore, etc. The school has pretty lenient policies. Lots of students have pets (I have two rats). Larger pets like dogs and cats must be either emotional support animals (which you need a medical note for) or service animals. The public safety officers here are pretty chill too. They don't stop students for no reason, they don't search students, and they don't violate anyone's civil liberties. As far as safety goes, I haven't for a moment felt unsafe on campus. That said, I'm also a male so I can't speak to how safe women feel. The school takes sexual assault EXTREMELY seriously though and every incoming student must go through a consent education session. It's a safe place for queer and trans students here, too. My partner and I met on campus and have always felt supported here. I haven't once heard any anti-gay remarks since I first came here so that's really incredible. The school prides itself in its efforts to be an inclusive community.
