Catch the Marlin Spirit at Virginia Wesleyan!
A real education is about more than books and tests. It’s about life. From the annual Mud Games and Seafood Party in the Dell to Greek Life, intramural sports, and 50+ clubs and organizations, there is always something to keep body and soul active and engaged on campus.
Virginia Wesleyan University is not just talking about the importance of sustainability issues—the University is actively greening its campus and taking action to become a more environmentally-friendly place.
Just driving on campus, you get the feeling that the environment is important to Virginia Wesleyan with its wide-open spaces, green fields, wild flowers, and bluebird and bat boxes for nesting. It's not uncommon to see a family of raccoons or Canadian Geese making themselves at home on campus.
With the creation of the Environmental Sustainability Council (ESC) came the development of a more aggressive campus recycling program and the refinement of campus building and business policies and procedures. In conducting campus audits, the ESC found that the University had already been environmentally conscious in many areas.
