Wesleyan launches Smaller. Smaller. Giving Days campaign in order to help relieve student life/financial stress during the current health emergency.

This campaign will be taking place as a 48-hour time period where anyone in the community will have the opportunity to donate whatever they can to help those students deeply affected by the current health crisis.

Now is the best time ever to donate, as an anonymous alumni donor has generously offered to match any contributions to the campaign 2-to-1 up to $50,000 so any contribution, no matter what the size, will have triple the impact...

Men's Wrestling, McKee voted favorite moment of 2019-20 - Texas Wesleyan University Athletics

Congratulation to Men's Wrestling, Dracius McKee as he won voting-favorite for the Texas Wesleyan Athletics 2019-20 greatest moments bracket!

This event took place since April 9th on Twitter, over a three-round period, having people vote on their favorite moments from the 2019-20 athletic period, here at Wesleyan.

The final round consisted of our softball Lady Rams upset over No. 6 John Brown 2-1 in the freezing cold rain vs McKee's win over the 165-lb. SAC/KCAC bracket AND having him and Kobe Nelms qualify for nationals in the program's first year of competition.

Congratulations McKee! #ramsup!
