The first ever Welcome Table was held on September 20 and attracted a diverse group of potential students to the Wesley campus. The students enjoyed Dr. Kenneth Soulen’s Systematic Theology class, toured the campus, and networked with students and faculty.

The first Window on Wesley of the academic year was held on September 25. Many prospective students attended the day-long event and enjoyed a chapel service, the opportunity to ask a lot of questions, and the chance to meet with students and faculty. The diverse group of potential students also attended three classes to get a real feel for Wesley’s academic excellence. The students attended New Testament Exegesis: Romans;  The Church in History: Early Church to Reformation; and Grounded in the Living Word: Pastoral Practices and the Hebrew Bible.

The Wesley admissions staff is hopeful that several of the prospective students that visited campus in September will apply to Wesley in the near future.

The next Window on Wesley will take place on October 16 at Wesley’s downtown D.C. campus at Mount Vernon Square from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Window on Wesley includes a tour of campus, the opportunity to attend a class, worshipping at a chapel service, and networking with Wesley students and faculty.
