TOP 10 REASONS TO ATTEND WESLEYAN

DIVERSE

Wesleyan draws an eclectic mix of women from all across the U.S. and more than 20 countries. On average, 20% of Wesleyan’s student population is international.

AFFORDABLE

Regularly ranked as one of America’s Best Value Private Colleges, our tuition is one of the most affordable in the Southeast. 95% of our students receive financial aid. Plus, there is no out-of-state tuition increase.

PHDs not TAs

90% of Wesleyan’s full-time faculty hold the highest degrees in their fields. A low student-to-professor ratio and classes taught seminar-style assures students receive one-on-one contact and the attention they need.

TOOLS FOR SUCCESS

State-of-the-art science center; award-winning nursing simulation lab; 10,000 sq. ft. art building with 18-seat Macintosh lab; early childhood model classroom; and natural arboretum with outdoor learning laboratory.

BEYOND THE CAMPUS

Along with our direct exchange agreements with various schools in Northern Ireland and Asia, our International Study Abroad and Exchange programs extend the boundaries of our campus and widen our educational horizon.

GRAD SCHOOL

The vast majority of our students are accepted into their first choice graduate programs at prestigious schools around the world often having earned double or triple degrees.

PROFESSIONALIsm

Our four-year plan helps students make connections between a liberal arts education and success in the workplace. Students can view and apply for jobs on the nation’s largest entry-level job board.

ATHLETICS

Wesleyan offers competition in five NCAA Division III sports: basketball, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Our award-winning equestrians compete in IHSA events.

FAITH AND SERVICE

As a college supported by Methodists from it’s earliest days, Wesleyan has a long tradition of service to the community. In fact, more than 75% of our students actively engage in community service.

Liberal Arts

Founded in 1836 as the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Since the first class graduated in 1840, fewer than 15,000 women have had the privilege of saying they earned their degrees at Wesleyan.
