Wesleyan is the short name for Ohio Wesleyan University. It is a small, but renown liberal arts college in Delaware, Ohio with a student population of 1900. It was founded by Adam Poe, a financially successful banker in Central Ohio. Originally a men's college and member of the Ohio Five, Wesleyan became co-ed in 1878 when it merged with the Ohio Wesleyan Female College. The college retains an even division of female-male students. It has a large gay population, and, just like other liberal arts schools, is known for popular recreational marijuana use.

"Is it really full of gays, stoners, and busted hos?"

Where are you going to college?

Wesleyan.

Isn't that a religious school?

No, bitch. It most certainly is not. Now, kindly get out of my face before I ask my lawyer mother to sue your whole f**king family and have you declared insane.

A prestigious liberal arts college in Connecticut known for its progressive politics, intellectual student body, and thriving arts scene. A member of the Little Three.
Student A: Yo are you going to become a banker after graduating from your fancy college?
Student B: Hell no dude, it's Wesleyan. I'll probably become a writer, move to Brooklyn, and live in a box.

Note: While also very respectable schools, Wesleyan is neither Ohio Wesleyan nor Wellesley.

A prestigious university in Connecticut known for its activist student body and left-leaning political tenor. Often criticized for being precious and single-minded, it gets most of its attention in the New York Times with articles relating to naked dorms and demonstrations. In recent times the school has become known for its Hollywood connections and film student graduates. In general, the school's reputation for protests, piercings and an active LBGT scene occludes its stature as a traditional and well-regarded northeastern university.

A small liberal arts school known as OWU (Oh-Woo). Kids who get in have the impression that they can sail through, but the work is demanding and a lot of freshmen flunk out. The frat scene is very busy because there is nothing else to do in Delaware, Ohio. The students are smart and kind of preppy. It's a place where you can get an excellent education even though a lot of people haven't heard of it.
"Ohio Wesleyan? Isn't that near Des Moines?"

"Um, no. It's in Ohio, not Iowa you stupid East Coaster."

a rich private school with over privileged white kids. the location of this school is irrelevant, just like everyone there. all these kids are a bunch of PRUDES who live a secluded life with no real experience in the world.
“Where do you go to school?”
“Wesleyan School.”
I didn’t know you were a faggot.”
