Make yourself at home.

On our residential campus, the student experience goes beyond the classroom. We’re here to help students make the most of every aspect of their life on campus. With so many avenues to customize your experience through the hall you live in, to the clubs you join, to events you attend, there’s no need to be a spectator while you’re here.

Spiritual & Religious Life

West Virginia Wesleyan College understands that spiritual growth, theological exploration, moral development, and the growing expression of one’s religious faith are central components to fulfilling the purposes of liberal arts education.

Wesleyan attempts to implement these principles throughout its program. The director of religious and spiritual life, along with a variety of student organizations, offers students, staff, and faculty an assortment of opportunities for religious study and practice.


“Unite the pair so long disjoined – knowledge and vital piety.”

– Charles Wesley


These words from Charles Wesley provide the basis for United Methodism’s involvement in higher education.

John Wesley, Charles’ older brother and the founder of Methodism, was the catalyst for uniting religious studies with the traditional liberal arts since John and Charles had grown up in an environment that stressed both religious and traditional educational formation. Thus, from the beginning, the Wesleyan heritage has incorporated both the religious and the liberal arts aspects of education.
