Fiscal Year 2017-18

"It’s not about the money. It’s about
what the money does that matters most."

NC Wesleyan College

Where students are prepared for professional
advancement, life-long learning, and responsible

participation in their communities.

Message from
President

Dr. Dewey G. Clark '82

Greetings Alumni and Friends,

Fiscal 2017-2018 was another year of forward progress at NC Wesleyan thanks to your support and
commitment to the College. With more than 1,350 gifts from over 2,900 donors, we raised over
3.9 million dollars.

Your support ensures that Wesleyan can attract and enroll the best students and provide them with
a powerful liberal arts experience grounded in distinctive history and Christian values. Our success
is being recognized through various awards and recognitions. We remain the fastest growing private
college in the state, were named to the Phi Theta Kappa Transfer Honor Roll, and recognized as a
Military Friendly School by Victory Media for the 5th consecutive year. Our Exercise Science
Program received accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education
Programs (CAAHEP), and we launched our Master of Science in Criminal Justice with the
first cohort starting in May. Wesleyan was honored as a 2017 USA Tree Campus. Athletics had an
outstanding year, winning four USA South Conference Championships in Men’s Soccer,
Men’s Tennis, Women’s Tennis and Men’s Golf.

Your gifts help transform our students and our campus. In 2017-2018, we were able to offer
additional scholarships, transform the Bellemonte House into a Bed & Breakfast, upgrade multiple
classrooms, renovate the Hartness Center, construct new office space in Everett Gymnasium,
create a walking trail around the perimeter of campus (in process), and completely remodel our
cafeteria.

Thanks to your generosity, a great deal was accomplished in 2017-2018 and we are in a better
position for the new fiscal year. Thank you for your commitment to NC Wesleyan College… our best
days lie ahead.
