Continuing Wesleyan’s commitment to supporting the diverse needs of the Middle Georgia community, the College offers the non-credit adult learning program Wesleyan Academy for Lifelong Learning (WALL). WALL provides an exciting range of educational and social interactions for mature learners in Central Georgia. Men and women who are interested in intellectual stimulation, personal growth, and networking opportunities can choose from a wide variety of courses designed to expose adult learners to new ideas and activities in a relaxed and congenial setting without concern for tests or grades.
Spring 2020 semester offers nineteen courses ranging in topics that include The Poetry of William Butler Yeats (Kenneth Hammond, Ph.D.), Cut it Out: Hands-on Pruning (Judy Carrigan), Macon and the Civil War Part 1 (Chuck Rawls), Castles and Palaces of Bavaria (Ernst Takacs), and Opera: Porgy and Bess (Mary Keating, Ed.D.).
Most sessions are held in classrooms on Wesleyan’s campus. The instructors comprise an impressive list of Wesleyan College faculty as well as experts from the community at large. Previous community instructors have included Terry Holland, Mark Ballard, Terrell Sandefur, Vivia Fowler, Nadine Cheek, Rabbi Larry Schlesinger, and Katherine Walden to name a few.
Students can take as many courses as desired on a first-come, first-served basis: $80 for the semester, $150 for an annual membership, or $45 for a single course.
