Wesleyan University welcomes the Rocky Mount and Eastern North Carolina community onto campus!
Being an integrated part of Rocky Mount and the Eastern North Carolina region is part of Wesleyan’s mission statement, and a commitment we are strengthening every day. We appreciate the support we have received in the past, and look forward to our continuing presence in the community.
