Parents and Family

We're pleased that your son or daughter is interested in attending Virginia Wesleyan University. With our small class sizes, our exceptional professors and our rich social and challenging athletic environments, we have a lot to offer.

Parents and students alike appreciate knowing that 95 percent of our graduates find employment within one year of graduation. That's no accident. In fact, we offer a number of programs and services to help students find the best, most rewarding career path. Be sure to ask about our Career Services Center and the PORTfolio program.

As a parent, you are very important to us. We hope you'll be involved not only in our Family Weekend, held during Homecoming each fall, but also in our Parents' Council. A great way to get acquainted is to visit campus with your son or daughter.

Attending college is a big step. We'll do everything to make that transition a positive experience for your son or daughter. We look forward to welcoming you and your family to the close-knit community at Virginia Wesleyan.
