HISTORICAL STATEMENT



West Virginia Wesley an College was founded in
1890 as the West Virginia Conference Seminary and
for fifteen years functioned as such. During this
period many men and women wiho have occupied posi-
tions of prominence and usefulness in the life of the
commonwealth received their training in the institution
at Buckhannon. During the early part of the present
century college work was begun and the first class was
graduated in 1905. Three years later the Seminary
was discontinued and eventually all academic work was
eliminated.

West Virginia Wesleyan grants the degrees of
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science and has made
provision for conferring the degree of Master of Arts
upon students completing a fifth year of collegiate work
along specified lines. The College is under the direc-
tion of the Methodist Episcopal Church and meets the
standards set up by the University Senate of that body.
West Virginia Wesleyan insists upon the most thorough
kind of intellectual standards. Leading univer-
sities welcome its graduates in their post-graduate
courses and give them full credit for work done here.

Buckhannon, the seat of West Virginia Wesleyan, is
located near the geographical center of West Virginia.
It is readily accessible from all parts of the state. Sev-
eral branches of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad pass
through the city, but in recent years bus transporta-
tion has been more frequently used. Bus lines connect
the seat of the College with all parts of the state. Stud-
ents coming by rail either from the East or West should
come to Clarksburg where they may get immediate bus
transportation to Buckhannon, a distance of twenty-
seven miles. The Wesleyan campus which is situated
upon an elevation within the Buckhannon city limits is

beautiful for situation. It consists of forty-seven acres
and slopes gently from the site of the Administration
Building. On it there is a grove of noble oaks from
"the forest primeval." Many ether beautiful trees were
planted by the founders of the institution. The beauty
of the Wesleyan campus can never be forgotten by those
who have seen it.

The college buildings are constructed for the most
part of brick and are well adapted for the purposes for
which they are intended. They include the Administra-
tion Building, Haymond Science Hall, the Gymnasium,
the Freshman Dormitory, the Agnes Howard Hall,
Music Hall, and several residences and other buildings.

AGNES HOWARD HALL

Agnes Howard Hall is a four-story brick structure,
providing rooms for 150 young women. In recognition
of the gift of $30,000 made by Mr. and Mrs. Clarence
D. Howard as a memorial to their daughter, Agnes,
this building, which was her heme in her student days
in 1916, was henceforth called Agnes Howard Hall.
This gift provided for the original building.

A new addition, completed in January 1929, more
than doubled the rooming capacity of the original build-
ing. The new bed rooms are arranged in suite style,
with private bath for every two rooms, or every four
girls. The ground floor is occupied by a spacious dining
hall, modern kitchen, and store rooms. In addition
to three small parlors, there is a large drawing room
which is magnificently furnished, and a recreation
room with a radio, piano, and games. This room is the
center of all social and formal activities of the girls. A
splendid room in the building is provided for the use of
sorority and non-sorority groups.

The Agnes Howard Hall is the center of the college
life for young women. Here is provided a home for
the students who reside outside of Buckhannon under
the immediate care and counsel of the Dean of Women
and her assistants.

Every provision is made for the happiness and wel-



20 WEST VIRGINIA WESLEYAN COLLEGE

fare of girls in this hall. A student organization at
the Hall has developed a large measure of self-govern-
ment.

The Hall is located on the south side of the campus
at a convenient distance from other college buildings.
Walks shaded by a grove of fine trees are at the front
and side of the Hall. The appointments and furnish-
ings contribute to the comfort, health, and social well-
being of the students. Every room is provided with
steam heat and is lighted by electricity . Fire escapes
reach several exits which reduce danger of fire. Much
care is used in the selection and preparation of the food.
An ample variety, properly cooked, and well served
is furnished.

All young women not residents of this city are re-
quired to live at the Hall. Exceptions to this rule may
be made when the student has relatives living in Buck-
hannon and desires to live with them ; also when it is
necessary for the student to board and room herself;
and when all the rooms of the Hall are taken. Parents
and young women are asked to note very carefully this
requirement. No one is to make arrangements for
rooming elsewhere without the approval of the Dean
of Women.

Permits from parents to attend dances or visit out-
of-town should be presented by the new students to
the Dean of Women on entering college.

All rooms in the Hall are furnished with the excep-
tion of sheets, pillow cases, comforts and blankets for
the beds, rugs for the floor, and curtains for the win-
dows. Students should bring the following articles:
umbrella, dressing gown, bath towels, bedroom slip-
pers, shoe bags, two laundry bags, hotwater bottle,
raincoat, overshoes, thick walking shoes, and napkin
ring marked with the first and last names. Trunks
should be marked with full name.

Charges for room and board are due and payable
as indicated under "Fees and Expenses."

FRESHMAN DORMITORY FOR BOYS

This dormitory provides a home for freshman boys.



HISTORICAL STATEMENT 21

All freshmen living outside Buckhannon are required
to room and board here unless special arrangements
are made through the Dean of the College to the con-
trary. Reservation should be made early by deposit-
ing five dollars as a guarantee with the Treasurer of
the College. This dormitory is supervised by a mem-
ber of the faculty living in the building. Here boys
will have helpful supervision during their first year in
college. The building is a four-story brick structure
with steam heat, shower baths, electric lights and
every other convenience.

Students who occupy rooms in the dormitory are
required to furnish towels, rugs, and linen and blan-
kets for their beds.

Charges for room and board at the Freshman
Boys' Dormitory are due and payable as indicated
under "Fees and Expenses."

RELIGIOUS LIFE

While the College was founded by the Methodist
Episcopal Church and has received its principal sup-
port from that denomination, its non-sectarian spirit
is emphasized by the composition of its board of trus-
tees and faculty. Students of all denominations and
those without church affiliations are equally welcomed
and have equal privileges. Several denominations are
represented in the student body. The College is pos-
itively Christian, but nonsectarian ; its charter places
no denominational tests whatsoever on its officers, mem-
bers of the faculty, or students.

The students and the faculty attend the Chapel
service three days per week. This service usually con-
sists of singing, prayer, and a short address. On Sun-
days each one is expected to attend the church of his
preference.

Recognizing that the foundation and inspiration
of the noblest character is Jesus Christ, the quiet but
constant influence of the College tends to lead the
students to a life of definite allegiance and loyality to



22 WEST VIRGINIA WESLEYAN COLLEGE

Him. During the year, special meetings are held in
the interest of the student religious life. These meet-
ings treat the problems of the students from a sane,
practical standpoint, endeavoring to lay emphasis on
the essential Christian spiritual values.
