What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Wesleyan is overall a 4 star institution. I am currently a sophomore attending Virginia Wesleyan University, planning on majoring in business with a concentration in accounting. During the first year I was enrolled here, I had mixed emotions. The overall attitude portrayed by the student body was very negative. There was always something wrong here, something to be fixed there, and overall disgruntlement. This set the overall tone of discontentment throughout the freshman class; However, after having the time to form my own opinion of the institution, I've come to appreciate it. As a freshman, I was presented with so many opportunities that other freshman may never have the chance of receiving (such as: attending the NATO summit in Norfolk, VA, getting a paid marketing internship, having small classes where my professors knew me by name, free tutoring, free counseling, study abroad opportunities and grants, research grants, and so many more). This institution is fantastic at providing opportunities to grow, support systems to keep you feeling your best, and introducing you to life-altering connections. I chose 4 out of 5 stars because there is always room for improvement. I see daily efforts by the school trying to improve upon itself. I'm excited to see what's to come. If you're considering coming to Virginia Wesleyan University, I highly encourage you to look past the academics. Look into what services are offered for free, the overall support system the school has in place, and the many opportunities open to you. You education is not just about the classroom, It's about how you can grow as a young adult and thrive afterwards.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice small campus with more smaller class size. Most of the benefits tend to go to batten honors college. professors are very enthusiastic about their work and love to work with you outside of the classroom. the housing on campus isn't the best with mold and rodents being a huge issue. however, only freshman dorms are being redone as of right now.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that my school lacks diversity and equality. There is no culture of this school. There is no school pride. There are no resources for financial assistance. This school just traps people, takes money, and treats students like prisoners and not the adults we are trying to become.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Virginia Wesleyan is generally a very good school. Honestly if you love small classes you should go here. Teachers are willing to work with you and have enough time to meet with their students. On campus housing is okay. They have been doing renovations, but there are of course a few issues. There was a black mold issue in my past year roommate's room, but residence life came and took care of it. Sometimes On-campus housing isn't available for sophomores, juniors and seniors, so the school rents out a hotel nearby and offers a shuttle to and from school for free. Its a bit of a pain but they get you on campus as soon as they have a room availability. This year they shut down one dorm to replace the showers so they had a lot of people in the hotels but most of them by a month received a room on campus. Food in the Cafe isn't bad. There's a salad bar, a burgers hot dogs and fries station, a dessert station, A home-cooking station and a random station. There is also a sandwich bar that it sometimes open. The home-cooking station has a a lot of home style cooking entrees and the random station holds sometimes pasta or build your own baked potato. There's always pizza too and just regular pasta if you don't like anything. There's lots of sports and so many clubs! I never get scared on campus because there's always security patrolling around on campus and the hotels.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have no regrets on moving away from California to come to Virginia Wesleyan University. VWU is a private liberal arts college located in Virginia Beach, Virginia with around 1,500 students. Courses here are advanced and interactive with the ease of having a smaller student to teacher ratio. I love VWU because the atmosphere here is inviting. I remember my first day here I was hesitant about meeting new people and wasn't sure how I could live without my family back home. It was weird for me to see a stranger smile at me and hear them say "good morning," in passing. Now, I greet everyone that I see and I have been able to connect with my professors, faculty, and peers since that first day. Virginia Wesleyan University has become my true home away from home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University could be agriculturally updated and the food options can be improved majorly and certain events could be more involving and fun and their can be an increase in scholarship rewards and financial aid also staff members can be more helpful towards students but other than that academically it’ a strong school with a friendly environment.

I think it is a great place to learn while having classes small enough for the professors to remember your name. It’s super close to the beach as well!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are several aspects of Virginia Wesleyan University or formerly known as Virginia Wesleyan College one can admire but one of the most important aspect is the safety as it is a gated community. Location is fantastic as well as you are right by the beach. There is always lots to do and it's a fun and loving environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved it here, I would not have transferred out if I hadn’t needed to. The downfall to this school is the fact that it is a private school and is a lot of money, especially if you have to live on campus. Everyone is nice, and the staff is all amazing. I wish I could go back!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The environment and overall atmosphere are great. VWU encourages involvement and openness in activities and the community. It's like high school all over again with harder course work. I may be a Freshman now, but I want to stay until graduation. I enjoy attending Virginia Wesleyan!!!
