Wesleyan University's Athletics Advantage Program combines individual training, mentoring, internships, career coaching, job shadowing, community service, and other dimensions of the successful undergraduate Wesleyan scholar-athlete career.
The A+ Program, as it is known to our scholar-athletes, unites university staff, students and alumni in a winning combination of caring, support, expertise, mentoring, and career preparation experiences to ensure success on the field of play, and in the student's chosen field of professional achievement.
A+ also gives alumni ways to partner with Wesleyan to help build bright futures for today's students and tomorrow's alumni. The more each alumnus/a knows about today's Wesleyan experience on campus, the stronger their bond with Wesleyan and their fellow alumni.
