Annual Alumni Events
Rock the Mount is an annual event held on the Southern Bank Green after freshman convocation. The purpose of Rock the Mount is to introduce new residential freshmen and new transfer students to the area community. The event is offered free to local businesses, area churches and local nonprofit groups as a way to give vendors a chance to come on campus and let students know about the services they offer and allow Wesleyan to show its appreciation back to the community. It’s a fun event for all!

The Wesleyan Cup Golf Tournament
The Wesleyan Cup is an annual golf tournament where area businesses, alums and the Wesleyan community come together for a day of fun and fellowship on the golf course. All Wesleyan Cup proceeds will support the Wesleyan Fund, which is an unrestricted annual giving account that allows the college to provide the best overall experience for our current students. As a Wesleyan Cup supporter, you will contribute to many initiatives such as scholarships, financial aid and academic assistance programs for deserving students.
Funds raised during this event are essential in maintaining the NCWC mission to improve the quality of life for our students-many of whom are from eastern North Carolina.
