Around campus, there is a general environment of smart, open-minded individuals who are, by a large margin, happy to be at Wesleyan. The free exchange of ideas is valued greatly by students and professors alike. The professors are very engaging and, while the coursework may be challenging, the general campus consensus is that the work is well worth the effort.

    Lively, liberal, and unique community. Amazingly knowledgable professors and academic freedom. Big on the arts, but kind of a bubble community.

    Liberal, creative. A place where freedom of expression is EXPECTED. If you don't like to live outside the box, don't even apply.

    There is a wide range of extracurricular and academic activities for people interested in all things (and if there isn't, you can create a group or petition for the creation of a course in your area of interest). It's pretty expensive, which would be daunting if not for the extremely generous financial aid. There are also many work-study opportunities for those who need it.

    A school that gave me the opportunity to receive a top-level education despite not having the financial resources to pay for tuition and all related costs. The school is giving me the chance to chase after my dream, and I plan to utilize their investment in my potential to better myself academically and in all other parts of my life. I have nothing but gratitude for everything they've done for me.

    Wesleyan is all-in-all a great university. It is small enough so that students have the opportunity to really connect with their professors and each other, yet large enough that you always have the opportunity to meet someone new, which is great because one of the best parts about Wesleyan is the student body. The student body here is much more diverse than most colleges which for me was extremely enriching.
