Wesleyan University (1831), Middletown, CT


Recommended Posts

I graduated in 1995. Any other Wesleyan grads here?

Like 20 or so other institutions of higher education in the United States, Wesleyan University was named after John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. Wesleyan University is now secular and is not affiliated with any of the other Wesleyans around the country. Or with Wellesley. :-)

Wesleyan is one of the top schools in the country for the study of ethnomusicology. Wesleyan also has a strong film studies program that has resulted in a "Wesleyan Mafia" in Hollywood.

Wesleyan enrolls about 3000 undergraduates and postgraduates. Famous alumni include Lin-Manual Miranda, Bill Belichick, Matthew Weiner, and Joss Whedon.
