Everyone, students and faculty, are extremely helpful and nice. They want to see you succeed and reach your goals, and they will do everything in their power to help you do just that. It is a little bit pricy, but the benifits are definitely worth the cost.

My experience at Wesleyan was amazing. As a incoming freshman, I was nervous. But all of the teachers and students were kind and helpful. I learned a lot during my first year, and I met many new people. I am forever grateful and happy to be going to Wesleyan.
