Dear Students and Family Members,

We welcome you to West Virginia Wesleyan College, a place where students prepare for future success through a high quality educational experience. Wesleyan enjoys a reputation for strong academics and co-curricular opportunities. It is a friendly community where students benefit from the tremendous support of faculty and staff who love to see our students succeed. At Wesleyan, students may select from 49 majors and 38 minors. Our outstanding faculty will provide you with a well-rounded education and excellent preparation in your desired major. Wesleyan graduates have gone on to success in education, business, health care, law, the ministry, and the arts and sciences.

Outside the classroom, students participate in athletics, outdoor recreation, Greek life, and many other organizations. Many participate in the College’s wonderful music ensembles and theatre program; others make a difference through service by participating in initiatives coordinated by the Center for Community Engagement & Leadership Development. Students can choose from numerous internship and international travel opportunities. Wesleyan offers tremendous facilities, including new and renovated residence halls, the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts, and the David E. Reemsnyder Research Center. A U.S. Department of Education Title III grant is allowing the College to renovate classrooms and learning spaces across the campus, ensuring that students have access to enhanced use of technology.

If you are looking for a rewarding college experience in a safe environment, where you are encouraged to find your voice, Wesleyan is the place for you. Founded in 1890, West Virginia Wesleyan College is proud of its Methodist heritage, but students from all religious and spiritual viewpoints will find the community welcoming and respectful of diversity. As a potential student or an interested family member, I encourage you to visit our beautiful campus and meet with faculty, staff, and students who have come to love their “home among the hills.” Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. I have been a member of the Wesleyan community for over twenty-six years, and I can assure you that this college transforms lives. We would love for you to give West Virginia Wesleyan a chance to transform yours!
