a current student here
Wesleyan University is, admittedly, outrageously expensive without scholarships or other aid. It's difficult to justify going to a university for upwards of $50,000 a year. However, the financial aid office is excellent at working with students and parents to help the students continue to attend Wes. If you're able to get even some of the price of attendance reduced, or are able to pay in full, I would say that Wesleyan is well-worth the money. In my college search, Wesleyan stood out as very unique in terms of atmosphere and student body. It has strong majors across the board, from the sciences to theater and the arts, and is well-respected by employers.
