the world, one woman at a time.
Wesleyan College was the first college in the world
chartered to grant degrees to women. Since that time, we've sent scores of
women out in to the world, to do some pretty amazing things. That includes the
first woman to receive a Doctor of Medicine degree and the first woman to argue
a case before the Georgia Supreme Court.
First for Women isn't
just a claim to fame -- it's a philosophy that separates our learning
community from all others. We're anchored in tradition and guided by an
innovative spirit. Though we look back fondly on what we've achieved, we also
look forward – to changing the way women are educated in the next century. Just
when it seems we couldn’t possibly accomplish more, our “first for women” list
keeps on growing.
