            Highly Recommend the Adult Studies ProgramWorking full time and raising an active family, I've always had the lingering desire to pursue my Bachelor's degree. When my family moved to Hampton Roads, I was pleased to discover that VWC offered an Adults Studies Program. The classes are held in the evenings and the class size is small. The most important aspect is the stimulating coursework and interesting lectures!

Wesleyan had nice size classes, wonderful instructors, and created a warm atmosphere. I feel like my Bachelor's degree was worth it's weight in gold - felt safe while attending and supported. Thank you!
