the world, one woman at a time.
In 1836, 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.
At Wesleyan, 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.
The U.S. National Forestry Pageant would like to thank Wesleyan College for providing a
$12,000.00 Scholarship to Miss U.S. National Forestry Queen and Teen Miss U.S. National Forestry
Queens. A $10,000.00 scholarship to the four runner-ups in
the Teen and Miss U.S. National Forestry Pageant. Thank you Jennifer Eadie, 2011 Miss U.S.
National Forestry Queen for helping make this possible.
