Wilmington College is enhancing its reputation for educational excellence. Our signature programs in agriculture, the sciences and athletic training challenge students to expand their boundaries both intellectually and experientially. Two new buildings are expressly designed for these academic areas; while complementing interests throughout the campus.
The Center for Sport Sciences is a flagship facility not only for those students in the sport sciences (athletic training, sport management, exercise science and coaching), but also offers numerous co-curricular applications with recreational and athletics amenities. The Center for the Sciences and Agriculture will literally touch every student on the main campus, however, those in the sciences and agriculture will benefit exponentially from modern classrooms, laboratories and other learning centers designed for teaching and learning the modern applications of these time-honored disciplines.
• 41,000 square-foot facility
• Accessible to WC’s 21 sports teams

“The Center for Sport Sciences is a total sport facility like no other at the NCAA Division III level. It directly impacts well over half of our student body as they engage in academic, athletic and recreational pursuits, and is especially appealing attraction from perspective students.”
Terry Rupert, VP for Athletic Administration

Our graduates are in demand and thriving in their careers. Wilmington College alumni are making their mark on society with significant contributions throughout their fields and communities. Our alumni are utilizing their Wilmington experience as a foundation for serving their communities, their country and, indeed, the world. It’s what we call “hands-on living.”
Wilmington has developed a vibrant, caring and unique learning community with outstanding students, faculty and staff — now it is time for our facilities to reflect those qualities. To this effort, the Leave Your Mark Campaign will build facilities that not only provide state-of-the-art educational space but that also foster learning and outreach to the Wilmington community.
