What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
tennessee wesleyan is a great college and worth the money. the professors take time to help each individual student and they don't just treat their students like a number. they really try to get you envolved in the community to help better your service leader skills and prepare you for your future.
Brandi from Tellico Plains, TN
This school has an amazing student/professor ratio. The small classes allow for intimate interaction and allow each class to be taught in a way that is best for the particular group. Most professors are easily accessible and are willing to help you in anyway possible, jobs, grad school or even just making it through the semester.
