Life @ Wesley

Some say it’s the unique on-campus events—like laser tag games and random cookouts—that make undergraduate life at Wesley the perfect mix of fun and relaxing. Some say it’s because the people are just so friendly, inclusive, and up for anything. Others say it’s the fact that Rehoboth Beach is a mere 45 minutes away. (Day trip, anyone?) Whatever the reason, we can all agree: there are a lot of reasons to enjoy it here.

There are a lot of reasons to enjoy it here

What I’ll miss most after I graduate is going out with friends. Hanging out in the Den. Going to the Wolverine Stop. Just being able to shoot the breeze with them. Everyone’s really friendly here.

What Wolverines Do for Fun

Watch outdoor movies at the amphitheater, paint in the College Center, dodge balls in the gym. Poetry nights. Open mic nights. Cookouts. Fashion shows. Our tireless Student Activities Board arranges nonstop on-campus events and trips to places like NYC and Six Flags. They’ll bring in a zipline, a comedian, a laser tag tent—anything that gets students together, having fun, and it always works.

Prefer something a little less organized? Groups of friends can be found just hanging out on North Plaza, kayaking on Silver Lake, sipping Starbucks down the street, or dining at Dover Downs.

Whether you’re the go-go-go or sit-down-and-relax type between classes, you’ll find others like you at Wesley.

Where
Wolverines Live

For the first two years, all students live on campus. We have seven residence halls: Gooding Hall (all female); Williams Hall (all male); and our coed halls, Carpenter Hall, Roe Hall, Malmberg Hall, Zimmerman Hall, and the Honors House. Some offer suite-style living, some offer apartment style. To really see the differences in each, it’s best to come visit in person. But one common denominator is for sure: they’ve all got personality.

Even when it snows, which it rarely does, you’ll find residence hall teams bringing their A-game. Snowman-building contests, Madden tournaments, dinner socials, movie marathons. We’re a pretty tight-knit family here at Wesley. Except during Dorm Olympic Games; then it’s every Wolverine for him or herself.

About
Town

Never been to Delaware’s historic capital? A few things students love about Dover are the beautiful running routes, the fun downtown, the restaurants (half-price apps at McGlynns Pub on Mondays!), and how easy it is to get to the beach or other big cities, like Philly and Baltimore. And that’s just stateside. Ask us about our faculty-led travel courses in places like Ireland, Italy, and Barbados when you come visit.

About
Athletics

It’s safe to say Wesley is pretty big on athletics. Nearly everyone is either a member of one of our 17 Division III teams—which include basketball, football, golf, softball, track and field, volleyball, and more—or a fan of watching their fellow Wolverines knock down the competition.
