FIRST FOR WOMEN
TO DISCOVER WESLEYAN
PROUD TO BE A WOMEN’S COLLEGE Wesleyan College is committed to women’s education and helping every student find her voice and purpose. Founded in 1836 as the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women and shaped by Methodist values, Wesleyan provides students an academically challenging and relevant liberal arts education. Wesleyan draws a wonderfully eclectic mix of women – about 700 in all – from across the United States and more than 17 countries, bringing to campus a multitude of backgrounds and ethnicities. Wesleyan students choose to study here because they want to test their limits. The bar is set high because our students demand it. First for Women isn’t just a claim to fame - it’s a philosophy that explains why Wesleyan women continue to make history today.

PROUD TO BE A RESIDENTIAL CAMPUS
Most traditional undergraduate students live on campus, which is one of the primary benefits of the distinctive Wesleyan experience. Residence hall living provides a healthy environment for you to grow socially and intellectually.
THE WORLD IS YOUR CAMPUS In addition to living and studying with peers from all over the world, students are encouraged to participate in a study abroad experience or join the faculty on planned study-travel courses to places like China, Greece, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, the Netherlands, and South Korea.
A model of racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic inclusion and success, Wesleyan students hail from across the U.S. and around the world. Approximately 40% of Wesleyan students are women of color and about 11% are international.
OF WESLEYANâ€™S FULLTIME UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS WILL HAVE AN INTERNSHIP OR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE.
By participating in student activities, students will gain leadership skills, work with many different constituencies both on and off campus, learn valuable skills to be used in the workforce, relieve stress, make new friends, and have fun. Established groups focus on themes ranging from political awareness to spiritual development to music appreciation. Join any club, student organization, special interest group, leadership board, religious group, or service organization that captures your attention!

GET YOUR GAME ON
As members of the USA South Athletic Conference, Wesleyan is home to six NCAA Division III sports: basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Led by an outstanding coaching staff and athletic trainer, our Wolves regularly win All-Conference and All-Academic honors.
IMPROVE THE WORLD
About three-quarters of Wesleyan students are servant leaders providing more than 7,000 hours of community service each year. Through volunteer work, students develop a sense of purpose as leaders who serve. Wesleyanâ€™s Lane Center provides opportunities for students to work both on and off campus with dozens of agencies.
Wesleyan is one of only ten womenâ€™s colleges in the U.S. to include an equestrian team in its athletics. Wesleyan competes in the IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association) in both hunt seat and western. Students may board their horses at our updated stables located right on campus just a short walk from residence halls.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS WESLEYAN?
Wesleyan alumnae represent around the world but the College is located in Macon, Georgia, a town of great heritage and tradition. Located in the center of the state, about 90 miles south of Atlanta, Macon’s metro population is around 220,000. Not huge, but not so small, either. As a “college town” Macon is home to Wesleyan and three other colleges. Downtown Macon is known for its lively arts scene, music venues, breweries, and boutiques. Regional, international, and inventive restaurants line the streets with an eclectic mix of delicious dining options. Visit the Macon and Bibb County Convention and Visitors Bureau for more information: www.maconga.org
