From day one at Kentucky Wesleyan, The Wesleyan Edge helps you to “advance your future.” This program provides a step-by-step guide to assessing skills and gaining relevant experiences, utilizing the support of all areas of the College. The program begins the moment a student commits to Kentucky Wesleyan and continues beyond graduation as students transition into alumni.
