Am learning a lot
Because this is a small campus, the professors have a better opportunity to answer as many questions as possible as well as have more one on one time with each student.
Am enjoying being here
The friends you make here will make your time here worth while. The campus feel like one big family and everyone pretty much knows one another.
Bang for the buck
Not a lot on campus to do, but you can find something you'll enjoy spending your time with.
Tips for prospective students
Be sure you have all financial aid information together. If you are having trouble in your classes, go visit you professor in his or her office; they are more than willing to help you.
Great for these types of students
Great school for students who are serious about their studies. If you want to party your way through college, plan to go somewhere else.

NC Wesleyan has a wonderful community feeling; as you travel around campus the communication and attitudes between the students, faculty, and staff is very intimate and friendly. The campus is not only beautiful but is has wonderful resources provided to the students as well as a helpful environment for learning. Overall my experience on campus has been wonderful and I enjoy achieving every day with the Bishop Pride.
Tips for prospective students
If you want to become a student here at Wesleyan I encourage you to come out and take a visit on campus; everyone is very welcoming and you will feel right at home. I encourage you to get involved on campus and join organizations and clubs. Many of our students are athletes as well so we are a very active college. Lastly don't take your resources for granted because here at Wesleyan you have more than you need in order to succeed.
Academic Rigor
Our Professors are extremely wonderful teachers, they enjoy questions and want to help you succeed. Every one of them has an open door policy and enjoys meeting with their students. Overall the academics at Wesleyan are wonderful and we have a library full of resources as well as Math and Writing Centers to encourage you along the way. Here at NCWC we also have a dedicated Honors Program where you can take specific Honor Courses to better your degree.
Dorm Life
The dorms are being renovated so they are going to be looking superb sometime soon. Overall you have lots of storage options for your clothing and other items.
Food and Dining
All the servers at the cafeteria are very sweet and love to serve you. The food is nutritional and there is always plenty of options to choose from. Along with the cafeteria we have a Starbucks in our library that serves all types of coffees and goodies! During the evening we also have the Grill where you can go get a late dinner. The Grill has many choices and a large menu of diverse items.
What to do for fun
Our campus has many organizations that host events throughout the week. On almost every Friday there is a dance hosted by one of the clubs. Along with that we have volleyball and basketball tournaments and other fun activities. In the Hartness Center there is a gaming system for the students to play XBox or Wii and they also have pool tables, a ping pong table and music; periodically tournaments for these will be held as well.
Bang for the buck
NCWC is a wonderful community to be involved in and it is a great way to spend your college time. I love attending NC Wesleyan. Go Bishops!!!
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The President of Wesleyan gives each Freshmen a chess piece, the Bishop. And he tells us to place it on our desk or dresser as a piece of motivation. And when we walk across the stage to graduate he wants us to give it back to him as a statement of I did it, I finished. It is a really creative thing and really does keep me personally motivated.
Great for these types of students
NCWC is wonderful for Student Athletes because we have a magnificent athletic programs as well as a work out room and weight room.
Clubs and Activities
We have many clubs here that you can get involved in and you should really take advantage of them all. A few out of the many are: SAC, FCA, and SGA.
Greek Life
We have 2 Sororities and 2 Fraternities here on campus and they meet once a month for Greek Council. They are a great group of people and love to have fun!!
Campus Safety
We have an Police Officer who lives on campus in one of the dorm apartments and we also have a Security Officer who is on call all hours of the day and night.

North Carolina Wesleyan College is a great school for adults who live a busy lifestyle. I work two jobs, but since Wesleyan provides night classes, I am still able to work and go to school. I am truly honored to be a student at North Carolina Wesleyan College and I'm very thankful they provided me a chance to further my education.
Tips for prospective students
This is a great school for hard working adults. The night classes have mature students who are eager to learn.
Academic Rigor
The instructors are very informative, and the work is fairly reasonable.

Am learning a lot
Because the classes are small you are able to interact more with the professors and get help when needed. The school has tutors to help with classes, and a writing center to help with essays and papers. Any student can easily set meetings with professors for further help in classes.
Am enjoying being here
The college has weekly activities for the students to mingle and have fun. There's dances, contests, t-shirt making, and more. Every week there is something new happening. I enjoy using the gym available in school and playing games in the game room.
Bang for the buck
It's an expensive college, but I learn so much that it makes the price worth it.
Tips for prospective students
Participate in the weekly events whether it's a party or a city clean-up. Don't be afraid to approach professors when you need help.
Great for these types of students
It's great for students who like smaller colleges and students who are interested in playing tennis and baseball. It is also great for international students.
