Wesleyan University is a private liberal arts college in Middletown, CT. 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.
From 1998-2000, Ted served as the Program Director for the university radio station, 88.1 FM WESU Middletown. Ted operated as an on-air personality under the pseudonym Dr. X.
It should be noted that in Season 4, Episode 7 "Not a Father's Day," Marshall has a degree on his wall from Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, OH.
