Wesleyan University on this year's ranking list:
is a school full of truly engaged students,” says an alum who majored
in government. ""Students
are very progressive, politically involved and active in a whole variety of extracurricular
activities including the arts (particularly film), comedy, theater, and many, many
others. Students are also an extremely intellectual group, meaning they are equally
intellectually engaged both inside and outside of the classroom.” Two final
students sum up, “Everyone
here is so talented at something, and often it is the thing you would least expect.”
“But if you come here,
prepare to spend time around people who question every single thing – really, every
single thing! – in society. All the time. It honestly never stops.”
