Founded in 1836, Wesleyan College was the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. Centrally located in Macon, Georgia, Wesleyan sits on a beautifully protected 200 acres.
Wesleyan College was seeking a partner to offer a comprehensive evaluation of its marketing efforts and develop a year-long campaign to improve recruitment, retention, and brand awareness.
