4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really believe that Iowa Wesleyan is the place for me. A great community and just what I was looking for.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: You get what you get and you get your award letter pretty quick, but they really don't try to give you anymore money unless you're completely maxed out on loans. you have to tell them that you qualify for such scholarship. If you don't they wont tell you and you will be paying extra without even knowing.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I cant eat here once without having a bowel movement as soon as im done eating. No following the food pyramid at all. Only carbs and dairy topped food which destroy your insides..

i only eat here because i have too..

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: For the amount we pay its bad. 2015 and no decent Wifi or A/C in rooms, and personally the heater in the room doesn't work. i don't mind the communal bathrooms.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is actually ridiculously great. Being close to campus and having the community available from all of the students in the dorms, makes lasting friendships possible and easy - however, sometimes the housing process can be a bit strenuous since there' limited housing for students and you have to sign up quickly, it's still a wonderful atmosphere in the residence halls.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: its a small school so my classes are really small and i love it, it gives me more one on one time with my teachers and it makes class decusions better and more smooth.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: if you know how to use the space in your room and lift your bed all the way up so that you'll have a bunch of storage underneath, and just use your chair to get in and out of your bed.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: its nice, the school is on the other side of a bridge, most people go to iowa city to have fun and stuff but i dont really go to the city.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: everybody is really nice and fun, they boys have a movie theater in their campus and they let the girls come in all the time.

Athletics: the boys on the varsity male sports are really fun to be around so that makes you want to go their games, and the girls varsity sports are fun to watch sometimes the girls sports are better to watch just because you know them better because you live with most of them.

Diversity: There are a lot people from different ethnic backgrounds on campus. Many of our students are from other countries around the world.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: We are a dry campus so that means no alcohol. Those who of age to drink should do it off campus to avoid trouble. It's not worth getting a fine for. There is a strict visitation policy, the opposite sex cannot spend the night. However, you may request for a room in the opposite sex dorm for your visitor.

Health & Safety: There have been no incidents since I have been here. The RAs are trained to know what to do in case something does happen though.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am very involved and have loved my experience. I can personally say that I have grown as a person and feel more at home here than I did in high school. I feel as though the staff and faculty actually care about me as an individual. I have a voice here and it is with great pride that I say I am a tiger.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: We are getting new dining this year! The cafeteria is being gutted and redone. The hours are going to be extended so that it is more convenient for the students.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Converting to DIII has been different and there pros and cons. Most of the team perform well and we are still growing. The support and togetherness is always high though. The turnout to all sporting events is great and student do awesome cheering on their classmates.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are lots of little resturants to choose from. There aren't many chains except, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Subway, Taco Bell, and Hardees. But Mi Pueblo is the best Mexican restaurant out there.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: It is a small town but when you actually spend time here you come to love it. There are small shops and the movie theatre is very cheap compared to bigger cities. The people are always friendly. Once a year there is the Old Threshers Reunion. This is when this small town of 8,000 explodes to 20,000. People from all over come to see Old Threshers. It is a lot of fun to go to and a lot of the college students work to raise money for their sport/club.

Campus Housing: The rooms are a lot bigger than most colleges. The RAs are the best and very easy to get along with. The bathrooms are kept clean by the staff. Although there is only AC in certain rooms (like lobby areas), it helps you make friends with your neighbors!

Off-Campus Housing: Most people choose to live on campus because it is easier. Since we are in such a small town it's hard to find an open apartment/house. Some people who actually commute found that they rather live on campus because you can be more involved.

Campus Quality: It is very easy to get involved!!! The sports are DIII. They are fun to watch and cheer on the TIGERS!!! The Student Union Board always has student events going on and the Greek Council tries to put on at least one event a year. The Tiger Pause (snack bar) is being redone and we are excited to see what is going to be there come fall. The boys dorm has a brand new hangout area in the basement with video games, ping pong and pool. The lounge in the girl dorm has a giant sofa, flat screen, pool table, and workout equipment.
