Alumni & Friends

Alumni, pull up a chair...you are always welcome at your alma mater!

It is an exciting time to be an alumnus of Virginia Wesleyan University. The Virginia Wesleyan University Alumni Council has worked hard to develop a strategic plan to involve all alumni in the life of the University. Whether it's through recruiting, interacting with current students, attending events, or giving to your favorite VWU program, we encourage you to become involved. There are no annual membership dues.

ALL graduates of the University are part of our Alumni community.

The Adirondack chair has become a staple around campus as a symbol of welcome and comfort, and we want you to know there is always a chair waiting for you!

Once a Marlin, Always a Marlin.
