The Power of "AND"
With more than 50 majors and an abundance of sports and activities at Kansas Wesleyan, you can experience the power of “and” by exploring your major AND enjoying extra curricular activities. From our award-winning debate team to music ensembles and unique clubs, there are plenty of opportunities for you to follow your interests and have fun when you aren’t in class.
Small Campus. Big Thinking.
At KWU, you will learn to think critically, act globally and engage actively on campus, throughout Salina and in the world. Our free Wesleyan Journey course gives students the opportunity to learn, serve and explore new communities in the U.S and abroad.
The Best Learning Tools
We have state-of-the-art equipment to help you learn. A fully stocked MAC lab, 3-D printers, television and radio studios, an observatory, and some of the finest athletics facilities in the region allow students access to essential tools that will develop skills for success in the marketplace.
Imagine the Possibilities
We’ve got a strong 129-year history, and this year, we have reimagined the entire student experience to meet you right where you are. That’s right – an entirely new Liberal Studies curriculum, new and innovative majors, online courses and hybrid programs. Our learning takes place in classrooms, over the Internet, in the rainforests of Costa Rica and in our nation’s capital. It’s an all new KWU, and we hope you will be a part of it.
