UNITY IS IMPORTANT AT AN ALL-WOMEN’S COLLEGE.

International Relations students work on project at table together.

When The Princeton Review interviewed Wesleyan students, this is what they had to say:

“What ties our students together is academics, sisterhood, and honor code.”

“The sisterhood program is an amazing tool that helps those who need a support system. By being assigned a big sister, we have an easier way of adjusting and meeting new people.”

“There are sisterhood pep rallies every two months, which unite the school as a whole.”

“I’ve had an amazing four years here and I don’t want to leave.”

THINGS ALL WESLEYAN STUDENTS SHOULD DO AT LEAST ONCE

RUN WITH PREZ

About once a month, Wesleyan’s president invites all students to join her in an afternoon run or walk around campus and through a close neighborhood. The trek is about 1.5 miles and everyone who runs gets a free t-shirt!

SIT IN THE TP

In the natural playground in Wesleyan’s 100 acre arboretum sits a student-constructed teepee made from materials obtained from Native Americans in Montana. It is a great place sit, reflect, and get some rest.

MARKER CEREMONY

On the evening before Commencement, graduating seniors and faculty process in regalia from the Old Wesleyan campus site to Mulberry Street United Methodist Church for Baccalaureate.

STUNT

A Wesleyan tradition for more than 120 years, the four classes write, direct, perform, and produce their own skits to compete for the coveted STUNT Cup. Proceeds from the annual event benefit academic scholarships.

RIDE A HORSE

Wesleyan is one of only 10 women’s colleges in the U.S. to include an equestrian team in its athletics. The stables are on campus within easy walking distance from residence halls. Wesleyan Wolves regularly win competitions.

SHOP WESLEYAN MARKET

Once a month, this fun community event hosted on campus features a variety of locally grown and produced items ranging from flowers and organic fruits and vegetables to baked goods, art, and jewelry by local artisans.

CANDLE LIGHTING

Each year during Alumnae Weekend, graduating seniors are welcomed into the Wesleyan College Alumnae Association (the world’s first) through a candle lighting ceremony with visiting alumnae.

COLOR RUSH

Each year during homecoming week, the four classes – Golden Hearts, Pirates, Green Knights, and Purple Knights – race to a competition where they decorate a space with their class colors – yellow, red, green, purple.
