About Wesleyan College

In 1836, Wesleyan College was the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Since that time, we've sent scores of women out in to the world, to do some pretty amazing things. That includes the first woman to receive a Doctor of Medicine degree and the first woman to argue a case before the Georgia Supreme Court.

At Wesleyan, First for Women isn't just a claim to fame -- it's a philosophy that separates our learning community from all others. We're anchored in tradition and guided by an innovative spirit. Though we look back fondly on what we've achieved, we also look forward – to changing the way women are educated in the next century. Just when it seems we couldn’t possibly accomplish more, our “first for women” list keeps on growing.

Campus information

Wesleyan College is located on a 200-acre wooded campus in residential north Macon (Bibb County), a community of 150,000. In addition to the academic and residential buildings the campus includes tennis courts, a softball field, a soccer field, a fitness center, walking trails, an arboretum, Foster Lake, and an equestrian center. The buildings are of Georgian brick design, attractively situated on the large wooded and landscaped campus.

Many buildings on Wesleyan's historic campus date back to the early 1900s; therefore, any buildings constructed before 1977 may not be fully accessible. Students with physical impairments and/or disabilities should consult with the Assistant Dean of Academic Resources, who serves as the Disability Resources Coordinator. Wesleyan can modify the location of classes being held in inaccessible facilities to accommodate the needs of physically impaired or disabled students.


Macon, Georgia located in the center of the state about an hour south of Atlanta. According to the City of Macon/Bibb County Government website, there are approximately 155,000 residents. A town rich in heritage and tradition, many musical artists launched their careers in Macon: Little Richard, James Brown, Otis Redding and the Allman Brothers Band, among others. There are several historical sites available for touring, including the restored Douglas Theater, Grand Opera House, Hay House, and the Cannonball House. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy Lake Tobesofkee, which offers relaxing, boating, camping and the like. For more information, please view the Macon and Bibb County Convention and Visitors Bureau at:
