Feel free to email one of the Wilmington College students below to ask them questions regarding their Wilmington College experience. They will be more than happy to respond.
My name is Ipsilan Castillo. I am from Costa Rica. I am currently a Junior at Wilmington College studying Early Childhood Education and Intervention. Some of the organizations that I am involved with on campus are: Amnesty International, Peer Support Team, International Club, Latino Student Association, and I am also a Student Ambassador.
The reason why I chose WC is because since the first time I set foot on the campus during my visit I felt like I belonged. Previously, I had attended very small schools. To put it in perspective, my graduating class was 10 students. Therefore, looking for a college was a nerve-racking experience. I was afraid that I would lose the sense of community that came with attending a small high school. I did not want to just become a number. I was afraid that my voice would get lost in a large class. My visit to Wilmington made me feel at ease with my concerns. Everyone was very welcoming, class sizes were small and I noticed that it was a very friendly campus. Once I became a student here, I soon became part of the family and enjoy the close-knit relationships where professors are genuinely concerned about the success of each one of their students. As you can tell by the number of organizations I am part of, I love my community and would be happy to answer any questions you might have.
My name is Heidi Edens and I am from Middletown, Ohio. I am a sophomore who is double majoring in Agronomy and Communication Arts. I struggled a lot my senior year when deciding what the next step in my life would entail and figuring out what place would be the best match for me. Immediately, the Wilmington College community welcomed me with open arms and gave me a wide array of support to help me decide where would I best fit in within the world we live. The faculty show genuine interest in who I am and give me the confidence to believe I can confidently accomplish my goals. It’s been incredible to have people who want me to change the world and pour support into me in every way possible. I love being surrounded by not just professors, staff, and other students, but by friends who help me network, strengthen my skills, and while doing so, always bring me joy. Wilmington College has given me a family that I will hold close to my heart for the rest of my life, and I am forever grateful to have such a tight knit community help me grow as I prepare for my future.
