It moved to its present 110-acre campus in Ashland, Virginia after the Civil War. This coeducational liberal arts college is one of the oldest Methodist-run institutes in the country.

Courses are available in art history, computer science drama, Asian studies, international studies, education, literature, music, women's studies, studio art, and religious studies, among others.
