    Wesleyan is a wonderful place that is close to major cities, though there is plenty to do on campus. It offers such a diverse group of people that I don't think I could find anywhere else. It is both rigorous and interesting. Everyone is completely excited about what ze is doing which leads to great conversation.

    Let's face it, this school is expensive. Studying for a year here will set you back about 55 grand, but at least in my case they were very generous with scholarships, and even though I still ended up paying $4000 this year I definitely feel like it's worth it.

    Ummmm it is on the more expensive end of the spectrum, but it is a good school to attend if you can afford it. It is 100% need met so you will be assisted financially to a great extent which is really nice. Overall the education you receive here is by far superior to other universities.

    Wesleyan's tuition is a bit steep, one of the most expensive in the country. But, filling out financial aid can lessen the load. It's a great experience if you can afford it or don't mind taking out loans or looking for scholarships.
