About Wheeling University
Wheeling University is situated in the northern panhandle of West Virginia on the Ohio River and is part of the Wheeling community.
Wheeling University was founded in 1954 to provide ‘spiritual enlightenment for tomorrow’s leaders and to seek God and find in all things” whether in the classroom, the chapel, liturgy, or laboratory. Originally named Wheeling College, the University was founded in partnership between the Catholic Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston and the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). While its name may have changed, Wheeling University remains true to its roots of providing its student-athletes with educational opportunities grounded in the Ignatian principles. Wheeling remains the only campus-based Catholic institution of higher education in West Virginia.
