Wesleyan University Top Questions

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!


Ok, here's the scoop. Wesleyan is pretty cool and really annoying. There are some great people who stay great, and there are some great people who you later find out are just social ladder climbers and are hoping your dad invented the cell phone or something. The profs, like many students, are brilliant idiots. Well, some of the profs are amazing, and there's a good chance you'll form a lasting bond with at least one over your four years. The students have too much money and love the "Wesleyan bubble" too much, but those who want to leave it can do so on their own steam. The University costs way too much, but the financial aid system is pretty good, and apparently a Wesleyan degree is still worth something to employers. Wesleyan can be a great four- (or five-) year vacation and it can be a place where you challenge the shit out of yourself. I suppose it's all relative. So, should you go to Wes? Yeah, I guess so. Should you go to Wes instead of Brown or Tufts or Skidmore or Vassar? Geez, I don't know, you should go wherever you get the biggest scholarship. Bummed you didn't get into Wes? Odds are it won't matter too much. If I could do it all again, I would have gone to school in Australia or New Zealand or the UK where the education is just as good and way cheaper. But I wouldn't say I've regretted Wes.


Wesleyan's the shit!! Come visit!!


Middletown is not exactly the best place to be, but it is so close to other major cities.


Applying to Wesleyan was honestly the best decision I've ever made. Apparently you either love or hate Wes, and I'd say 99{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} of the time is all love.


Guys, you can scale down these questions a bit I think. I'm guessing you're just trying to get the ball rolling with all of those questions, but it comes off as though you're asking about all of them. Maybe just say something below the headings that's like "some things you could talk about:" or "some ideas:" or whatever. I know you're trying to be fun and light but if someone skips the instructions (I did. I expect the instructions to be "answer the questions.") then it's like running into a brick wall of questiondom. I still loves you though.


I thought there'd be more drug use on campus, but it's pretty low key. There's a bust every so often when people are careless.


I bet a lot of my fellow students are annoyed that you only gave two options for gender while taking this survey.


I chose Wesleyan because no current students had anything bad to say about it. Now, having graduated, I am inclined to agree. While it is not a perfect place, it is full of happy, satisfied people who generally really like each other and the school that they attend. As an alumni living in another city, I've met a good number of other recent graduates that I didn't know at Wesleyan, but have gotten along with immediately.
