List of famous alumni from Wesleyan University, with photos when available. Prominent graduates from Wesleyan University include celebrities, politicians, business people, athletes and more. This list of distinguished Wesleyan University alumni is loosely ordered by relevance, so the most recognizable celebrities who attended Wesleyan University are at the top of the list. This directory is not just composed of graduates of this school, as some of the famous people on this list didn't necessarily earn a degree from Wesleyan University.

Alumni include Andy Dick, Dana Delany and many additional graduates as well.
