About Wilmington

We are Wilmington College. 

In 1870, Wilmington College was founded as an independent liberal arts college in the Quaker tradition by the Religious Society of Friends. Our mission is to educate, inspire, and prepare each of our students for a life of success, right here in the heart of Ohio.

Main campus is in Wilmington, named “Among the Best 100 Small Towns in America.” We also have two branch campuses in Cincinnati, and we offer a number of distance learning programs. In all, we serve 1,200 students on main campus and 500 students at branch campuses.

Our Cincinnati campuses will work with you from start to finish, fitting classes to your schedule and bringing the Wilmington College experience closer to home.
