Brianna - 05/07/2024

My opinion of Wesleyan College is that we are treated like a big family. They thrive to make everyone feel included. They love their students like they are their own. Its a small but clean environment, and I'm pretty sure everyone knows each other so it isn't hard to ask for help. We love to have study dates in the library when its time for exams which I love.

Leilani - 05/07/2024

Wesleyan College has its perks and quirks. I believe that the amount of opportunities that have been given to me wouldn't have been there at any other university. I enjoy going to class and attending all of the clubs and events on campus. The campus is very community-based and goal-oriented. Wesleyan takes pride in providing students with the things they need to be successful and to keep their voices heard.

Ashanti - 07/04/2023

I really love going to school here. The campus is a little rough because it's a historical college, but I love the community and learning environment. We are also making some improvements now that we have a new president, so I'm grateful to get to see us grow some more before I graduate.

Isabella - 05/23/2022

Going to Wesleyan College at the start of spring of 2022 I found it calming how there are not that many students there at the school and the teacher-to-student ratio brings more hands-on learning compared to a bigger school. It is not so more of a bigger campus or even the city you are in as much entertainment, parties, or frats you may look for in other colleges this is more of a small town it may feel like to most people or what one of my professors may say, " Whenever I go outside, it always feels like a ghost town. No one is ever out!!" so this school may not be for everyone and I would not recommend it for those looking for more of the college experience for most of those who attend here will transfer for that same reason.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    The most important thing I would tell myself is that college is not a party. The mistakes you make in thinking it is so, costs you later on in your career when you want to get serious. It is better to come into college with the mindset that you are there to work and not to party. College is a serious place and people just don't seem to grasp that concept. Another thing I would tell myself is that having a social life is an option not a necessity. Being popular does not determine what job you may get or how great your grades are. I have experienced the problem that popularity causes, which is a drop in grades. So, overall I would tell myself not to be a social butterfly and to maintain a level head about studying and going to classes.
