3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Security does not hesitate to act when rules are being broken and trouble begins to effect the peace on campus. Many are friendly, and others can be very rude.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greeks have been known to throw many events that are fun and welcoming to non greeks. They are sometimes viewed as people that are somewhat snobby, but not with everyone. Greek housing involves their own personal townhouses.

College Sophomore

Majors: Many majors include the opprtunity to enter into internships and professors have pave the way. I have not yet personally entered into an internship.

College Sophomore

Majors: To enter my program is just like the others. Maintain your GPA and follow the suggested path of necessary classes to complete the degree.

College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Most of my freshman year consisted of time on campus. I only left several times to venture throughout the area.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are not as new as those that upper classman have. We sometimes have bug problems, water leakage, and sometimes they arent cleaned very well by the staff. Housing does allow you to live near your friends or chose places are are more quiet and secluded. Sometimes its a hassle to live on campus because there are reles and tigher regulations than on a normal campus because we are a private institution. Cost is also a problem. Many students feel that we pay more for little to nothing more special than any other school. Honestly, I know of several campuses that have better housing choices for less than what we pay.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: All areas avaliable to students offer places to have some fun and kill time with friends and also meet and greet new people. unfortunately there arent too many. The main student center closes at a specific time and after that many students are left bored, with nothing to do.. but go somehwhere and try to find a party.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some classes are bigger than others, and some are very limited. The quality of the material being taught can't be questioned regardless. Most professors make it earsier than others and from my own experience majority do the best they can to help you outside of class if something isn't easy to grasp during classroom hours. The variety of classes offered is very good, although they cover many areas that may not match to the career that is wanted from the degree, but required by the cirriculum of the college to reach liberal arts standards. But this is also an up side because it spans over alot of information which broadens your horizons making you a better candidate for getting a job which leads to a career after graduation. The school can be somewhat of a community that has many cliques because its so small. But many of us know how to come together and show school spirit and work together when necessary. It's all about what you make it!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very often does VWC hold career fairs, and study abroad fairs to expose students to the opportunities that the college offers. Alumni often come back to speak to large audiences to tell of their success and what to do in order to get to where they are.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The kitchen does its best to reach our needs but all to often food runs out, and the choices in the kitchen are limited and they get very boring very quickly. The grille that is open to students have inconvenient hours. They close to early on week days and dont even open on the weekends! It gets very annoying.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The coaches are not only focused on that sport, but also teach fitness classes and train individuals that are not apart of any athletic team. Areas in which they use to practice are open for anyone, accept times of practices for important games, and tournaments. School Spirit is number one!! That is one of the most exciting times of the school year. Everyone comes out to show their support as one big student body. Fear the Fish!!

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live out of state and I also don't have the funds to live in housing off campus. Therefore, I don't know much about this topic.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: In the Criminal Justice program there are many advisors available to students that are actively using the material they teach in their careers. Having these professionals at our finger tips also gives advantages of entering internships that range from unpaid experience, to paid shadowing interships that transform into jobs after graduation with a CJ degree. The workload is not overwhelming as long as you pay attention to lectures and due dates. Unfortunately, because many of our professors are in their prime of their careers many CJ courses are only offered late in the evening from 6-9 pm. Overall, this criminal justice department at Virginia Wesleyan is one of the best in the Hampton Roads area and it is all about taking proper advantage f the tools that are given to you.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Classroom sizes remain at comfortable sizes and professors practice what they preach. They are open to helping you through emails and working with you if you have a demanding schedule under reasonable circumstances. This liberal arts school is open to students forming their own majors and creating student clubs and programs to reach out to others in the school and the community. Registration processes can sometimes be a hassle when it comes to having student holds as a result of having large remaing balances due to the school. But for the most part, there is always a schedule set almost a month in advance in order for the student body to be aware of when to sit down and prepare. At this time advisors purposely increase their office hours to help you properly formulate the schedule for the next semester according to your major and/or minor. VWC is very helpful and open to allowing students to access classrooms, labs, and study rooms when needed. Security is always avaliable to lock and unlock areas that students request at any time during the day and at night.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: As a freshman, I was very focused on my academics and I was not into experiencing the night life in the area. I did not have my own transportation, and extra spending money for leisure off campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of college friendly neighborhoods.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are no African American fraternities and only two African American sororities.

4 College Junior

Majors: Can create your own major.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Norfolk is a college/military town.

4 College Junior

Diversity: It was attacted me to the school.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: There are different options available which is nice.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The scholarship of the week is helpful.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I can't honestly say whether the campus helps with off-campus housing because I am a commuter student living with my grandparents in the area. I don't have any friends who are not either living in the dorms or are also local commuter students. It would be unfair of me to rate something I know nothing about.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: No matter what your religious affiliation, there is a service for you. We even have a Saturday service at 6 a.m. at the beach if that's what you'd like. We have gone non-denominational so you could attend a service at anytime that's convenient for you or just wander into the chapel for your own little moment of prayer. There is no discrimination as to your sexual or religious preference. There is only one God and Lord over us all.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There are a wide variety of sports at VWC. This year, in fact, we received a $1 million donation to build a new LaCrosse field. The old LaCrosse field will now be used for practice. There are separate baseball & football fields, tennis and basketball courts, indoor swimming and indoor/outdoor tracks. The team isn't nationally known, but we do rather well in our own little region of the world and all games are very well attended.
