The school is a part of my community. They are partnered with my high school I got to see the campus and experience the different activities they have on campus. It is a small school, but everything you need is easily available. It is really close to home, so I feel real comfortable about being in a place with new people. Its really easy to communicate with different staff and faculty via email or in person, so that was awesome when I needed to get in touch with people.

Mackenzie - 07/01/2022

During my time at Texas Wesleyan, I rarely felt supported. Being an out-of-state student it was important for me to feel like I had people to that I could go to. At first, it seemed as if everyone on the staff would be a good resource to navigate my first year. However, as the semester went on it felt as if they cared less and less. Student life is pretty nonexisting as was the support for any other teams aside from football and men's basketball. It was hard to keep up with campus and current events bc of the lack of communication on campus. The absolute worst part of this university is the financial aid office I never left there feeling like I was taken care of and was ultimately the reason why I left the school.

Layla - 02/11/2021

Texas Wesleyan University has got many great qualities. It does have small classrooms and the professors are always available to help. However, If you are looking for a Christian School, this is not it. Texas Wesleyan even advertises that it's a small Christian school but the religion department does not even have a true Christian on staff. They do have some"new Christian" ideas which really means not biblical. The Professors are fantastic overall but they are almost all Liberal Socialist and quite frankly Marxist. Some of the older professors are Christians but overall they are not Christians at all or they believe in a very loose version of Secular Christianity. Critical Race Theory is pushed in nearly every class. They pride themselves on their Critical Thinking teaching method but what it really means is a Socialistic agenda overall and a Marxist ploy to destroy Capitalism from within by Race division. I am an older student and I chose Texas Wesleyan because they gave me the most money and it was close to home. However, I was shocked at their teaching methods and some professor's blatant push of Socialism Ideologies. They even go as far as saying things like Capitalism always fails and insulting Republicans and Conservatives beliefs, implying they are just ignorant and only watch the fake news. Like I said If your looking for a good school with great professors and you are not religious then this could be a good choice. BUT If you are a Christian make sure your faith is solid as a rock -knowing your faith and Bible backward and forwards. Make sure you know what you believe and why you believe it. AND most of all make sure you know your history. Some professors take liberties with revisionist History.

Destiny - 11/01/2020

Generally speaking, Texas Wesleyan is a great school. The school population is fairly small, so there is a special community that is made among both faculty and students. The school really tries to make things accessible and engaging for students especially after funding the new student center building. Additionally, the academics are taken very seriously and with the smaller class sizes, the instructors are consistently available to those who may need extra guidance or assistance.

  9. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    The one distinct thing I remember before attending this school is that everyone praised how "approachable" the teachers are. However, most of the teachers are impossible to get ahold of or are not willing to meet with you to discuss topics in the class. Texas Wesleyan is an OK school if you just want to get your education and not be bothered, but if you want to live the college experience; and go to sporting events, have school spirit, fratertity/sorority parties, etc, then Wesleyan is not for you.
