3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have mostly fast food options. There are a lot of chain restaurants to choose from though.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Most of the buildings and facilities on campus are really nice and have a lot to offer. Some of the dorms are a little run down and could use a renovation.

4 College Junior

Facilities: We are a very small campus and because of the low student to teacher ratio, students can get a lot of one on one attention.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: The Greek life on campus is very involved in the community.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Because we have such a small campus, there is always something going on within ear shot. Everyone is welcome to join any activity, and our entertainment director brings in GREAT things every weekend. We love the outdoor beauty of the campus and do a lot to preserve it. The emphasis on community service reflected by our school is evident in every organization on campus, as well as the students that organize service projects.

5 College Sophomore

Facilities: Wesleyan really is a community. Entering as a freshman here was one of the smoothest transitions; everyone treats you like family. The professors are genuinely interested in you and meeting the needs of your education. Our campus events are out of this world (bull riding, aqua massage, a mini zoo, etc), so there is never a dull moment.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We don't really have a problem with safety or security. Campus life is respected, and we all look out for each other. Though the security guards are about 70 years old, so I'm not sure they'd be much help in an emergency. The health center isn't too hot either. They offer a lot of services, but have limited hours and rarely adhere to those hours. It's cheap to go to, though, when you can get in.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Most students participate in Varsity sports, and that is reflected in class structure, facilities, and dining hours. Many students choose to go to sporting events held by the school, as well as create their own events on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Though there is not much to do indoors, the town and surrounding areas are full of things to do with friends. Locals are more than happy to give advice or suggestions of things to do or places to go as well.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Frat houses mainly for underclassmen, then to the bars like Club Bobcat and Whistle Stop when you get older. You can walk everywhere, but DDs are needed for safety.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel completely safe on campus. While there are fights and problems, most occur at the frat houses adjacent to campus.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I wish they allowed us to live off-campus, but only through beating the system can you.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you like anture and outdoors, this is a great fit. There is limited stuff to do, but programs on campus like OUtdoor Rec really help out. Also, just going out and exploring will give you a lot of stuff to do.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: You can walk everywhere on campus, and to most of the amenities on main street. However, cars are useful to get to campus since it is isolated. However, parking is limited. You will want a car to travel to local sites like Sago, Audra, or up to the Bridgeport, Clarksburg and Morgantown areas.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: We are all required to bring a laptop, and without one you would be lost. The inernet is slow and unreliable, but it is there. The entire campus has wifi acess. I'd reccommend bringing a printer, but there is free printing in the library and Sunnybucks. However, they recently added a limit that few reach. Just be smart when printing powerpoints.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Majors do not typically have an admission process, aside from Athletic Training and Nursing. Some majors just have requirements for GPA. Try not to get behind in classes, because that will hurt you int he long run.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: The biology program is amazing. The faculty really try to make you feel at home, and help you out more than many other science majors. Also, they are great in helping with your internship and research requirements to graduate.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: While in the heart of a very homogenous state, WVWC does try to up its diversity. Many of the athletic teams have several international students, and I know people from England, Australia, Belgium, France, Italy, Africa, Japan, Korea, Ireland, just to name a few. There is a gay/lesbian club on campus and there is some variety in religion. Politics aren't really a big thing on wesleyan's campus.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Wesleyan is an expensive private insitution, and they keep raising tuition. However, they do their best with helping you find scholarships. Don't expect a full ride academically or athletically, but they do give many options to lower your cost.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose Wesleyan again. I am an athlete, and the faculty is great about understanding my schedule and helping me out. I feel at home here.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are more females than males here. Relationships are common and there are a lot of places to meet someone. Casual dress is very common, mostly people wear jeans and t-shirts or sweats. However, we all like to dress up sometimes.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: People come to Wesleyan because they are intelligent and want a challenge. It is a difficult school, but you will be prepared for a career or grad school.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: WVWC is in a small town, so there aren't a ton of dining options. However, the dining options there are mostly locally owned or small chain, aside from some fast food and newer options. You may have to look around for some places, but overall there are a lot and many offer student discounts, even the fast food places. CJ Maggie's, Audrey's, Las Trancas, Hometown Market, Market Bistro, Hillbilly Grill, and BWWs are the favorites. Taco Bell just came to town as well.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus visitations are pretty lenient and the campus police usually don't get on your case and are pretty helpful. I feel safe on campus though. The only realt campus strictness comes from strict RAs.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: WVWC does a great job of helping the students have access to computers and software, nut could really use some improvements in the network reliability in all of the buildings.
