I love Wesleyan! I play soccer there, and the team is amazing. We have a lot of recreational sports teams. The university departments are very helpful and friendly. There is a lack of diversity on campus however. You can find a lot of organizations to join on campus. You can also experience a lot of social events, and meet a lot of new people since it is a small school. Wesleyan is close to downtown Lincoln and University of Nebraksa-Lincoln as well, which is very nice. You can drive to UNL and watch any sports games with your student discount!
Nebraska Wesleyan is a school that I am proud to say that I attend. I really enjoy the class sizes and the beautiful campus. There's not much that I can say that is bad about Nebraska Wesleyan from my experience. The professors genuinely care about their students, and there is always something going on somewhere that anyone can be a part of whether it be a spaghetti feed hosted by a fraternity or a movie night held by the entertainment board.
Nebraska Wesleyan is an amazing school whose primary focus is on its students. Overall academically challenging, Nebraska Wesleyan is also culturally and socially challenging. Many classes have students examine where they stand and rethink certain "truths". The small class size has its benefits and disadvantages however.
Nebraska Wesleyan University has it's ups and downs. They are slowly trying to improve on some things. They try to have inclusion for just about everything on campus. We have a great academic program, our sports are on the rise and are seen on a national level, in my few years there I've witnessed 8 national champions, our greek life sororities and fraternites are honored on a nationally. So much more

I study hard, try to do my best, and I seek out help when I don't understand something. I have learned that while good grades are to be sought they are not everything in life. This was a hard lesson to learn. In high school I had a 4.0 GPA and grades were everything and in college I have a 2.80 and study more than I did in high school. Sometimes you won?t understand something no matter how hard you try. It isn?t a failure to know you can?t do something just an awareness of your limits.
The important thing is the journey and what you've learned. I have learned that one of the greatest things to do with your life is to give to others. With this in mind I am actively involved in my Circle K club, which has a different volunteer opportunity each month. Life is about the journey, you should try your hardest in college and life and not be heartbroken when you don?t achieve your goal -as long as you learned something.
The most frustrating thing is the expectations the professors have for you. Its not frustrating in a bad way, but the amount of work and difficulty of some work can be overwhelming. The professors know the true potential of their students and they will push them to be their absolute best.
The small classes, because it means more one on one interaction with professors.
The people and programs of Nebraska Wesleyan make it an easy place to call home; I love it here.
The combination of Wesleyan being a liberal arts school and the smaller campus makes for an amazing experience. In my classes, my professors have done an excellent job of not teaching you WHAT to think, but rather HOW to think. Classes are often very discussion-based, so we all get to share our opinions and learn more from different perspectives. Critical thinking and creativity are encouraged. Even in my math class, which, by nature, is more memorization than anything, my professor incorporates different projects that give us a little bit of creative wiggle room.
The worst thing about my school is the lack of diversity on campus. Because it is such a small university, not many ethnic people prefer NWU over a larger university.
Someone who's goal oriented, likes small learning enviornments, likes one on one interaction with their professors but also a medium sized city feel.
The small classes are great and the teachers are very friendly.
My school is best known for academics and a wide variety of majors. Also it has a really good study abroad program.
someone who wants a large campus atmosphere
My classmates at Nebraska Wesleyan and friendly, supportive and intelligent.
How hot all the girls were, and how much studying there would be.
