The Class of 2022 at Wooster is the most geographically and culturally diverse we have ever welcomed to campus. International students make up nearly 20% of the class, representing 37 countries. U.S. students of color comprise 20% of the class.
The new Ruth W. Williams Hall of Life Science, or “The Ruth” (nicknamed by students to honor Ruth W. Williams) is home to the biology, chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, neuroscience departments, and the environmental studies program. With its innovative biophiliac design, The Ruth houses classes, research spaces, and community areas for the interdisciplinary conversations that are so important to scientific discovery – and even a greenhouse!
The Princeton Review just ranked Wooster 9th in the country for “Best Colleges for Internships.” Whether working over the summer at NASA, The Cleveland Museum of Art, or Credit Suisse, Wooster students participate in supervised short-term experiences in a career field of interest to them.

I study Political Science with a concentration in International Relations. I was a research assistant to Dr. Kille, where I helped compile and analyze sources about the many specialized components on the United Nations system. I then studied abroad in Geneva, focusing on the UN headquarters there. I also interned with the UN’s liaison office in Washington, DC which allowed me to learn firsthand about the organization and foreign policy worlds.
The strong resources, and support from faculty and community were huge factors in my decision to come to Wooster. Compounded with the beauty of campus and the many opportunities Wooster provided, it was an easy choice.
I am involved in the Wooster community through a few different avenues: I am the President of our Model United Nations team and the yoga club. I am also a member of our hunt-seat equestrian team.
If you want a place where you can grow into who you want to be and figure out what you want to do, all while surrounded by an incredible community and support system, choose Wooster!
