What Students Are Saying

3.73 Average Rating
Nebraska Wesleyan is overall a great school, and is truly the 'Harvard' of the Great Plains. The staff and faculty are not only knowledgeable, but kind and helpful as well, they truly care about students. Although the student body is not necessarily diverse or friendly you do get a great academic experience that will help any student achieve their dreams.
