High Point, N.C. – Conference Carolinas is proud to announce the NCAA Division II sponsorship of Southern Wesleyan University. Southern Wesleyan currently competes at the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA Division I) and the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) level.
“Southern Wesleyan is delighted with the enthusiastic support of the Conference Carolinas’ Presidents and member institutions regarding this sponsorship on our journey to apply to the NCAA Division II. We are rolling up our sleeves, gaining momentum and excited about the application process! We have already seen solid evidence where this development increases our already deep commitment to student-athletes and we look forward to the next steps in becoming a full member in Conference Carolinas,” said SWU president Dr. Todd Voss.
Southern Wesleyan, located in Central, South Carolina, fits into the conference’s geographic footprint. SWU will potentially become the fifth member of the conference located in the state, joining Converse College, Erskine College, Limestone College, and North Greenville University.
Upon NCAA application approval, SWU will become scheduling partners with Conference Carolinas’ institutions. After successfully completing the three-year NCAA membership process, SWU will become a full-time member.
