College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life at Wesleyan College.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is not much to say about Greek life at Wesleyan College. Wesleyan College is not a sorority; however, this institution is grounded on a strong love for sisterhood throughout campus. Wesleyan College has a class-system in which each class is classified by the class colors, graduation year, and mascot. Although Wesleyan College is not a sorority, we uphold class traditions, cheers, and songs similar to a sorority.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek at School – There is no Greek life here at Wesleyan. There is one frat which is treated more as a business club.

5 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: No Greek Here! We don't have Greek life on campus because we have our own system. Each class has their own mascot and color, and best of all, we're all sisters!

Greek Life: There are no sororities on campus, but the entire school has a class system of sisterhood that is amazing. No, it is not for everyone, but it is a once in a lifetime kind of experience. Whether you are really into it or not doesn't matter, there is a place for everyone at Wesleyan.

Although Wesleyan College was the founding institution of both Alpha Delta Pi and Phi Mu, there is no longer Greek life on campus. According to Wesleyan's archives, sororities proved to be the source of conflict and elitism among the women on campus; therefore, they were banned in 1910. That being said, however, the sororities formed the basis for the new class system and many social traditions that continue today. A student automatically becomes a member of a sisterhood class as soon as she is accepted into the College. The four class mascots are the Golden Hearts, the Purple Knights, the Pirates, and the Green Knights. Each mascot remains with a class throughout the four years a student attends Wesleyan, and then they are passed down to the incoming freshmen after a class graduates. Thus, the spirit and compassion shared among the classes result in a unanimous sentiment called, "sisterhood."

Many Wesleyan women participate in sisterhood activities, yet a portion of the population chooses to remain uninvolved. Each and every activity is optional, creating an accepting environment among the women on campus.
