The First-Year Experience (FYE) at Wesleyan College is designed to assist first-year students in the transition from high school to college and help students have a successful first year of college. The goal of the First-Year Experience (FYE) at Wesleyan College is to motivate and inspire first-year students to reach their full academic potential while transitioning and enjoying the college experience. How you can help – REFER A STUDENT: Nobody knows the value of a Wesleyan College education better than her alumnae. We encourage you to share your experiences with high school girls and their parents. Encourage them to attend a Preview Day or take a virtual tour. Invite them to contact the offices of enrollment services and financial aid. Guide them to our website to learn about scholarships, grants, and loans.
Don’t forget about the Legacy Scholarship, valued at $15,000, offered to incoming first-year students who are referred to the College by a Wesleyan alumna who is a grandmother, mother, step-mother, sister, step-sister, sister-in-law, or aunt of the student. (The relationships of great-aunt, godmother, and cousin are not considered legacy. Wesleyan College reserves the right to limit scholarship funds based upon availability.) The Wesleyan First Book Award, is another great way for alumnae to promote Wesleyan College. The award is given to outstanding high school sophomores who are eligible for a significant scholarship if they matriculate at Wesleyan.
