President's Message

President BalchDear Students and Family Members,

We welcome you to West Virginia Wesleyan College and hope that it becomes your “home among the hills.” As an alumna of this phenomenal liberal arts college, I can personally attest to the caring and nurturing environment that WVWC offers to both its undergraduate and graduate students.

You may select from 44 majors and 34 minors. Our outstanding faculty members will provide you with a strong liberal arts foundation along with excellent preparation in your desired major. Student success for entrance into medical fields, graduate school, and the job market is extremely positive.

The possibilities are endless. If you are looking for a college experience that provides a value-centered atmosphere with the majority of students participating in meaningful community service, then consider joining us. WVWC, founded in 1890, has a proud Methodist heritage and welcomes and nurtures students from all religious affiliations with numerous religious and spiritual life opportunities.

If you are the adventuresome student who may want to study abroad, enjoy Greek life, join one of over 70 clubs, or explore the fabulous outdoor recreation activities (such as biking, snow skiing, caving, horseback riding, white water rafting, or rock climbing) consider joining us at West Virginia Wesleyan College.

If you are an athlete and would like to continue your sport(s), we have 20 exciting NCAA Division II sports and a variety of intramural sports.

If you are a performing artist or have ever wanted to participate in theatre, voice, jazz, marching band, or instrumental ensembles, you will join over 250 talented and enthusiastic students.

New facilities include the Virginia Thomas Law Center for the Performing Arts, the David E. Reemsnyder Research Center, the Wellness Center, and Dunn Hall. Renovation of other existing residence halls is also occurring.

Do you want to have a college experience that will last for a life time? WV Wesleyan faculty and staff care deeply about students and provide incredible experiences and opportunities. WVWC is truly a special place that will forever impact your life.

As a potential student or an interested family member, I encourage you to visit our beautiful campus and meet with faculty, staff, and students who have come to love their “home among the hills.” Feel free to call or e-mail me with any questions you may have.

Pamela Balch, President
