The Wilmington Difference

Discover what sets you apart.


This is your chance—to apply what you learn inside the classroom through experiences outside of it;
to put your thinking to the test every day; to learn even more from each new experience;
and to be ready for what comes next.

That’s what we mean by the Wilmington Difference.

Wise Program

You always felt like you had the power to make a difference. Like the dirt under your fingernails was a memento of success. You felt drawn to be a steward of the people, the land, or the earth’s resources—and you knew it was about time to engage, seriously.

Wilmington in the World

Hands-on learning. Hands-on living.


At Wilmington College, your education doesn’t end when you leave the lecture hall. It’s what happens all around you. It’s constant. It’s hands-on. It pushes you to grow—intellectually, physically, and spiritually. And, most important, it prepares you for a lifetime of success and service to others. End of story.
