    The university tries to be very accommodating of any housing concerns that the students might have. As freshmen, the majority of my friends have been given single rooms, which I have come to learn is very rare among even upperclassmen at other institutions. At the same time, though, there are many freshmen in forced triples due to this year's class size. As an apology to these individuals, Wesleyan does give them a small sum of money back on their housing costs. In the dorms themselves, much depends on where you are on campus and within the building. Overall, no one that I have talked to about their housing experience has had any large gripes with their dorm or floor. Wesleyan would receive three stars here because of their underestimation of the size of this year's freshman class, but their saving grace is, as stated, the commitment to allowing the option of singles to freshmen. read full review

    Based on my experiences from being on campus, and interacting with students and faculty I could just feel myself absorbing knowledge left and right! Wesleyan's philosophy is all about learning for learning's sake, not just because it's something that you have to do while in college. Since you're spending more than $50,000 a year don't you think you should be able to do what you want with your college education?! With it's open curriculum and open arms for student innovation, Wesleyan is the perfect place to spend the best four years of your life. read full review
