  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

Wesleyan College is an amazing institution that offers a variety of things like an extremely divers student body, stimulating classes and professors, and a great sense of sisterhood. It was been a pleasure to attend, not to say it was not a culture shock, but it is one of the best moves I have made.

Wesleyan is a college with powerful background. It teaches girls how to be self-confident and how to compete in the modern world. This college creates ladies out of girls.
Regina from Macon, 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.

The campus is stunning. The dorms are hidden, kind of, which is really cool.
