Religious Emphasis Week: 

Religious Emphasis Week Religious Emphasis Week is an annual event at Wiley. While worship services and student-sponsored Christian activities are a part of campus-life, the College concentrates its efforts on these activities during the month of February of each year and designates the week as an opportunity for campus-wide spiritual renewal. Guest ministers are featured during this event. Founded on religious principles, Religion is still at the center of the Wiley College mission to educate the whole student.  More than a century later, it is still a part of our mission to educate the whole student.  Religious Emphasis Week is a week devoted to spiritual reflection and a time to rejuvenate the spirit. Religious Emphasis Week at Wiley College is one of many traditions embraced by the campus family, religious leaders, and the Marshall community. During Religious Emphasis Week, the College seeks to have every student and every faculty and staff member experience the love of Jesus Christ and to grow closer to Him.
