Wesley Student Council

Wesley's Student Council seeks to promote the common welfare of the student body.  We act as the voice of the student body through providing an open forum in which concerns can be raised.  We also sponsor various student organizations and work with the administration, faculty, staff and community as a whole to ensure a supportive academic climate.
