At Wheeling Jesuit University, our philosophy is rooted in the Jesuit educational tradition that spans more than 450 years. Academic excellence, a commitment to serve others and the desire to educate the whole person - these are the values that make a Jesuit education unique.
Wheeling Jesuit offers more than 30 undergraduate programs, enrolling over 1,000 students. Our professors encourage conversation and critical thinking in the classroom, and our 13-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio ensures that our classrooms will never be mistaken for amphitheaters. Involvement on campus is a hallmark of our students. You could be standing on stage in a production at Troy Theater or floating down whitewater rapids at one of the Adventure Society's outdoor odysseys. You might join Campus Ministry, play an instrument in the pep band or end up auditioning for 'Jesuit Idol.' Maybe you'll write a column for the Cardinal Connection, our student-run newspaper. Whatever it is that interests you, you'll find an outlet on our campus.
