Greetings and welcome to all new and returning students. My name is Anah Galloway; I am the Student Government Association President for the 2013-2014 academic year. There's no better time than now to get involved with your University.

I was intimidated when I started here at Wilmington to step out of my comfort zone and just show up to interest meetings or events. Since taking that first step by attending a simple interest meeting, Wilmington offered me opportunities to travel, meet new friends, network with professionals, improve my leadership skills, and work on my fear of public speaking, just to list a few.

I encourage you to take advantage of the many events, activities, organizations, and services outside the classroom provided by Student Life. Good luck with your classes and I hope to see each of you getting involved this year.

Student Government Association (SGA)

Student Center

Stop by our new, state-of-the-art Student Center located in the Pratt Building on the New Castle Campus. Home to the WU Student Life Department, the Student Center houses many events throughout the year, such as Wildcat Pride Week, Salsa Night, Student Appreciation Days. If you're a gamer, the Student Center has ping-pong, foosball, and air hockey tables, and a video game room with X-Box and Playstation. Looking for a cool place to just chill out? Spend some time in the Tree House located above the “pit” or the multiple lounge areas located all over the main floor.

Health and Wellness

Wilmington University is committed to offering healthy options. These options include Student Health 101 online magazine, healthy foods at the Italian Kitchen café, and an online mental health screening offered to all students. Come check out the Student Health and Wellness Expo on September 19 at 11am in the Student Center for information on these and more wellness services.


Wilmington University has a new athletics complex located about 5 miles from the New Castle Campus. It features a 20,000 sq. ft. building and turf field that is the home to our Men’s and Women’s Basketball, Volleyball, Men's and Women's Soccer, and Women's Lacrosse teams. Check out the new complex and our other athletic competition venues on our Athletic Facilities web page, and show your Wildcat pride by coming out and supporting your favorite teams.
