Apologies for a delayed note...I must have been sleeping at my post last year!! Iowa Wesleyan changed its name to Iowa Wesleyan University effective August 2015. The institution is located in Mount Pleasant, IA. It was founded in 1842 and assumed the name of Mount Pleasant Collegiate Institute in 1843. The name changed to Iowa Wesleyan University in 1855 and then to Iowa Wesleyan College in 1912.
