Wesleyan College

According to the school, Wesleyan College is forever first for women’s education – striving for excellence, grounded in faith, and engaged in service to the world. Founded in 1836 as the first college in the world for women, Wesleyan College offers an education that leads to lifelong intellectual, personal, and professional growth. Our academic community attracts those with a passion for learning and making a difference. The Wesleyan experience has four cornerstones: Academics, Women, Faith, and Community. We believe that real education is a lifelong endeavor, fueled by curiosity, challenge, and discovery. Providing a solid foundation for a lifetime of learning and growth. Mention the term ’women’s college’ and most people envision ivy-covered towers in the U.S. northeast. However, Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia, a four-year liberal arts college founded in 1836, has the distinction of being the world’s first degree-granting college for women. Today it is recognized as one of the nation’s most diverse and affordable selective colleges. Students value the College’s tradition of service, small classes, beautiful residence halls and picturesque campus. Wesleyan is committed to the goals of educating women to understand and appreciate the liberal and fine arts and preparing them for careers through high-quality professional programs.
