This is a wonderful school with caring staff and located in a nice city. Fees include membership to the healthpark at the local hospital which has excellent facilities.

The students and faculty made me feel completely welcomed and reassured when I came for orientation. The campus was beautiful and very well taken care of. I feel that I made the right choice when I applied at Kentucky Wesleyan College.
