KWU Celebrates 130th Anniversary

KSAL StaffSeptember 16, 2016

Thursday was a special day for Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina. It was the 130th anniversary of the school.

Officials celebrated by burying a time capsule on campus, filled with items that represent the experience of the students and faculty.

Kansas Wesleyan University is  a liberal arts institution. The school opened its doors in 1886. It maintains a covenant relationship with the United Methodist Church and is supported by the Great Plains Conference.

Henry Mayo and Daniel McGurk were the first students to graduate. Notable KWU alumni include Bill Graves, the 43rd governor of Kansas.

The school is planning a big celebration next weekend, September 23rd – 25th,  during Homecoming & Family Weekend.
