"At Virginia Wesleyan, professors don't just care about what students are learning; they care about who they are becoming. Career preparation is only part of the story. There is also preparation to be a Renaissance citizen, an honorable, caring, and culturally literate person who will lead a good and reflective life in service to family and community.”—Cathy Lewis, H '09, host of "HearSay with Cathy Lewis" on 89.5 WHRV-FM
