Our Math & Science majors are not only making a difference in their fields of study but they are also influencing the world of science through research. 

Wayland Students continue to win research awards and state and regional academic competitions.


Build an

Athletics Facility

Our student athletes continue to impress us. Our athletics programs continue to be highly competitive on the national scene, bringing home national championships and competing at the highest level. And our athletes still perform in the classroom.

You can help us provide a place for them to train with state-of-the-art strength and conditioning equipment, a sprint track, locker rooms and more. With your gift, Wayland will be better equipped to serve our students.

Athletic Excellence

At Wayland, we do a lot with a little. Though our current training facility is little more than a shed, our teams continue to compete with the best. This new training facility will empower our athletes to reach new heights. 


Gates Hall

Gates Hall was completed in 1911, and was named after Wayland's first president, Dr. Isaac E. Gates.

100 years have taken a toll on this beautiful building. Restorations to the exterior will allow Gates Hall to continue to be a hub for Wayland life.
