Chelsey from Lufkin, TX
The close-knit community of my small college makes for a personal educational experience. The small number of students makes each class more fun. The professors are able to connect on a more personal level and I enjoy seeing how they truly care about the students' education.
Katie from Fort Worth, TX
It is a fairly small school, which is great for the learning environment. You also receive excellent person help from professors. Texas Wesleyan has overall been a great college experience preparing me for the years to come.
