Memories & Milestones
In 2013, Wesley College celebrates 140 years of impact in the community and, most importantly, in the lives of students. Our theme for the year is “Memories and Milestones” which captures the historical events and the personal stories that resonate with us all—whether we were actually in attendance or simply seeing and hearing fond recollections. We hope you enjoy the timeline of memories and we have created.

From there, the Wolverines knew they might have something special as returning All-CAC performer Paul Reynolds prepared for his senior season.
