  • WHAT CAN I STUDY AT WC?

    Anything. No, really. We have a list of majors and minors, but our 12-to-1 student-faculty ratio and small class sizes, paired with research and internship opportunities means that you can customize your education to fit your intellectual interests and career aspirations.

  • WHAT CAN I DO AT WC?

    We may be a small campus, but WC supports more than 80 clubs—from the Alexander Hamilton Society to Relay for Life to the Writers’ Union. About 25 percent of our student body participate in Greek life, and 30 percent participate in varsity sports.

  • HOW DO WE MAKE IT POSSIBLE?

    We’re here to listen. We will work with your family to make your dream of joining the WC family possible. Around 85% of our students receive need-based financial aid and/or merit-based scholarships, and over half of all students qualify for merit-based tuition scholarships.
