What Students Are Saying

4.28 Average Rating
Around campus, there is a general environment of smart, open-minded individuals who are, by a large margin, happy to be at Wesleyan. The free exchange of ideas is valued greatly by students and professors alike. The professors are very engaging and, while the coursework may be challenging, the general campus consensus is that the work is well worth the effort.
Brendan from Middletown, CT
Wesleyan is political. Wesleyan is quirky. Wesleyan is a welcoming environment that embraces individuality.
