On May 15, 2021, 106 Wesleyan College students received their diplomas at a very special outdoor commencement ceremony. As far as records show, this is the first commencement to take place on the quad in the Rivoli campus’s ninety-three-year history. Twenty-five students earned their bachelor of science in nursing degrees. The top five majors for the eighty-one students who earned their bachelor of arts degrees were business administration, psychology, biology, English, and music. Twenty-four graduates earned double majors and almost forty percent graduated with honors.
Members of the Class of 2021 have reported graduate school acceptances to Emory University, Boston University, University of Sydney (Australia), University of Edinburgh (Scotland), University of Georgia, University of California Irvine, Clemson University, University of Rochester, Auburn University, Arcadia University, and Georgia State University. Two will be earning their master’s degrees at Wesleyan. Others are entering the workforce at local hospitals and schools, GEICO, Georgia Farm Bureau, and a Macon CPA firm. Several are completing full-time internships at Tennessee State Park, Ministerio de Educación (Spain), American Bear Association, Argus Eyed Partners, and Visit Macon.
