About Wesleyan College
Founded in 1836, Wesleyan was the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Every year since then, Wesleyan women have been making history. We take our role as a pioneer in women’s education seriously. Today, we continue to educate women to do the extraordinary in their professions and in service to their communities. At Wesleyan, women are expected to think, to explore, and to dream big. It’s an environment where no student will ever be told that she can’t do something because it’s too hard. Wesleyan is a four-year residential college that requires all traditional students to live on campus. We believe residence hall living provides a healthy environment for students to grow socially and intellectually. Students may try out for any of Wesleyan’s five NCAA Division III athletic teams - basketball, soccer, softball, tennis, cross country - our award-winning equestrian team, or join any of our many clubs and organizations.
