About Wesleyan University
Wesleyan University was founded in 1831 by Methodist leaders and Middletown citizens. Named for John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, Wesleyan is among the oldest of the numerous originally Methodist institutions of higher education in the United States.
Today, Wesleyan is a non-denominational liberal arts university that places a high priority on diversity in terms of faculty and administrative staff, the student body, and the curriculum. Wesleyan offers 44 majors in 38 different departments and programs including interdisciplinary programs. In addition, the University offers certificate programs in environmental studies, international relations, and Jewish and Israeli studies. Wesleyan students can design their own major, called a "university major," if a committee of three faculty members agree to supervise the program.
The social scene at Wesleyan is very diverse. There are numerous musical performances and plays put on at any one of Wesleyan's stages and music halls. These events range from student performances and faculty presentations to performances by renowned groups such as the Afro-Cuban All Stars. There is also a Wesleyan Film Series that shows movies every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday in the science center and at Wesleyan's own cinema. One of the greatest aspects of the arts at Wesleyan is the students' ability to help create the music, theatre, and film which is shared and celebrated throughout the community.
Wesleyan has more than 27 varsity sports teams. The Freeman Athletic Center opened in 2005, with a 1,200-seat gymnasium for basketball and volleyball, the 7,500-square-foot Andersen Fitness Center, and the Rosenbaum Squash Center with eight courts.
