Fall Kickoff

Fall Kickoff

Let the cherished traditions begin! Wilson’s esteemed faculty and dedicated staff warmly welcomed new students on August 31 for Move-In Day. On September 1, our campus community gathered for Convocation, a symbolic start to the academic year. Led by faculty and student speakers, this event marks the moment when students pledge to uphold Wilson’s long-held Honor Principle. Remarkably, the Class of 2023 is the second largest in our history, promising an outstanding academic journey. To all our students, whether on campus or worldwide – Find Your BOLD!
