Wesleyan University is a private liberal arts college in Middletown, Connecticut. Ted, Marshall, Lily, Steve Henry, Maggie Wilks, Pete Durkenson, and Daryl LaCoutre all attended there. Matt Blitz attended this university before Ted, Marshall and Lily. It is also the college that Marvin goes to in 2030.
In Not a Father's Day, Marshall has a degree on his wall from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, OH.
Wesleyan is shown in numerous flashbacks, most of them occurring in Ted and Marshall's dorm room, room 110 of Hewitt Hall (Lily lived in room 220).
