Homecoming 2019

We celebrated in style as Kentucky Wesleyan honored its treasured past and continued to push toward its bright new future. Homecoming 2019 featured a full field for the Baseball program’s golf tournament at The Pearl Club, the build-a-bed ministry which provided 35 beds for local children in need, induction of former student-athletes and invaluable contributors to the Athletic Hall of Fame, a new format and location for the Alumni Hall of Fame and Alumni Awards Celebration, a huge tailgate, the annual Wesleyan Singers Concert, football, soccer, baseball, softball and basketball games and reunions, a Saturday night after-party and Sunday Worship. Plus, the Class of 1969 was inducted into the Golden Jubilee Club on the occasion of it 50th Reunion. What a celebration of Kentucky Wesleyan College!

Homecoming 2018: Purple Reigned as Wesleyan Community Celebrated Together

From honoring legends to building beds to cheering the Panthers on, the Wesleyan family gathered from 14 states, including Alaska, to celebrate The Wesleyan Way Sept. 28-30.

The weekend began with the dedication of Kingsley Korner in memory of Doug Kingsley ’61 and continued with lots of sawing, sanding and drilling as countless people built 28 beds for needy families. The beds, complete with bedclothes, toys and Bibles, were delivered to area children.

Purple reigned with many successful events, including athletic contests, Athletic Hall of Fame, Alumni Hall of Fame and Awards, a tribute to Dr. W.L. Magnuson and the Class of 1968 50th Anniversary Reunion.
