Wesleyan Way Day of Service - Monday, November 30. The day of service will include Wesleyan students, faculty, staff and alumni in partnership with local nonprofit organizations. Service projects will be conducted at Burns Elementary School, Cravens Elementary School, the H.L. Neblett Community Center, New Beginnings, and Wesleyan Heights United Methodist Church, among other locations. #WesleyanONE will be used in reference to the service day and Giving Tuesday on December 1, emphasizing that one person and one gift can make a difference. The law firm of Foreman Watson Holtrey, Hendrick Screen Company, Greenwell Chisholm and ADventures serve as sponsors.
Giving Tuesday - Tuesday, December 1. This is a worldwide philanthropic effort now in its fourth year. More than 30,000 not-for-profit organizations have participated so far. Wesleyan is proud to become a part of this worldwide phenomenon. The amount of a gift on Giving Tuesday is not important. Gifts of even five dollars go a long way toward demonstrating broad support for our college. This initiative is about the number of individuals investing in what we do, and not total dollars invested. The Advancement staff will be available in Administration Building, offices 105 and 106, if you would like to write a check or make a cash gift. You may also visit https://kwc.weshareonline.org to make a secure gift online.

"Wesleyan 1st " - If you are a first generation college student (your parents do not have a college degree), then you are in good company here at Kentucky Wesleyan. At least a third of our students and over thirty faculty and staff are first generation. Being first generation comes with unique challenges as you navigate the college experience. Check you email for a list of those faculty and staff. Feel free to stop by any of these offices on campus and talk to people who have been in your shoes! They will also have a "Wesleyan 1st" sign on their door.
