West Virginia Wesleyan College Naming Opportunities 

West Virginia Wesleyan College offers a wide range of naming opportunities that provides individuals or families venues to establish a perpetual legacy or ways to permanently honor family members, mentors, or friends.  On January 24, 2013, the Wesleyan Board of Trustees revised the institution’s naming policies for academic schools and departments, student life programs, buildings, centers, classrooms, residence halls, athletic facilities, and scholarships.   There are many other available recognition opportunities in addition to those listed here.  Please contact the Advancement Office at 304-473-8600 for additional details.
