Welcome Wesleyan Bobcats!

Even if summertime is coming to an end, it doesn’t mean the fun ends. All of Buckhannon starts looking ahead to cooler weather and the return of WV Wesleyan College students.

There’s an undeniable change in Buckhannon’s atmosphere when the students are back on campus. The Riverwalk Park is full of students taking a breather to walk along the river. The patio at Stone Tower Brews is full with people grabbing lunch or a coffee. Students go out to explore Audra State Park’s swimming holes and trails. Everyone stops by the walk-up Dairy Queen before it closes for the winter months. Downtown businesses hang their Orange & Black to welcome Wesleyan’s students and families. All of this signals a new year as we welcome all Wesleyan Bobcats!







Buckhannon is a vibrant town that shapes student’s experiences into impactful and memorable years. Students can connect to our growing Arts District on Main Street, get outside to paddle the Buckhannon River or bike the Upshur County Trails, or stroll up & down Main Street shops and restaurants. 

Go out and find your place in the world – we’re glad you chose WV Wesleyan College!
