About Wesleyan College

Wesleyan draws a wonderfully eclectic mix of women – about 700 in all – from across the United States and more than twenty 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.

Safety Announcement: Hurricane Florence

September 13, 2018

 

 

Hurricane Florence is expected to come through Georgia this weekend.

 

YOUR SAFETY IS OUR #1 PRIORITY.

We’re here to help you through the storm.

 

As you probably know, the National Weather Service is predicting dangerous weather conditions for our area this weekend.

 

  • The State of Georgia is already under a STATE OF EMERGENCY.

  • Stay informed about the status of hurricane Florence during the next several days.

  • Take precautions to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your property.

 

College administrators are monitoring the situation by the hour and will make decisions in the most-timely manner possible concerning the safety of our students, faculty, and staff, including the possible cancellation of classes. Consult your family now and decide your best safety action concerning staying on campus or traveling. Campus will remain open* until further information regarding the storm is available.

 

* The term “campus will remain open” means classes are in session – all employees should report to work.

The term “campus is closed" means no classes will be held – no one but essential employees should report to work. It DOES NOT mean students have to leave campus. Residence halls will remain open.
