Directions to WVWC

West Virginia Wesleyan is located in Buckhannon, a college town of 7,500. The town offers a wide range of locally-owned and fast food restaurants, a number of unique shopping opportunities, and a Super Wal-Mart. The town is a popular destination each May for the annual West Virginia Straw- berry Festival and during the summer months because of the many flowers that are displayed throughout its streets. Buckhannon was recently featured in The Smithsonian Magazine and is included in Norman Cramp- ton’s 100 Best Small Towns in America. The West Virginia Wildlife Center is located 15 miles south of Buckhannon and the Meadowbrook Mall in Bridgeport is 25 minutes from the campus.

A walking and biking river trail sits adjacent to the Wesleyan campus and Buckhannon is home to two nine-hole golf courses—Buckhannon Country Club and Riverbend Golf Course. Several West Virginia State Parks, ski resorts, and biking trails are located within 1 1⁄2 hours of Wesleyan.
