What Students Are Saying

3.27 Average Rating
The campus is stunning. The dorms are hidden, kind of, which is really cool.
Jessica from Thomasville, GA
Wesleyan is an academically challenging school. The classes sizes are very small so you receive a lot of one on one attention from your professors. The faculty and staff are willing to help you in anyway that they can.
