4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been a great experience. I found the dorms to be reletively clean and spacious. Each student is given their own fridge and microwave in the dorms.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of the campus community at Virginia Wesleyan. It is fun and very inclusive

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Virginia Wesleyan has a good athletics program that does its best to meet the individual needs of our athletes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Virginia Wesleyan is a great community of scholars that strive the pursue excellence and help others do the same. It is a welcoming community that forces you to think outside the box and be more creative.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The cleanliness can be a lot better the bathrooms are gross and there is a horrible smell in my residence hall.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love my fraternity and the other organizations on campus

1 College Freshman

Athletics: There are not a lot of involvement or mentions of sports at my school.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school and the students and staff that attend. They Faculty is help in whatever field they are in just the school is really expensive and I wish I had more money not to worry about it.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol is the drug of choice. Policy is enforced. The negative impact of enforcing the policy is that is your townhouse has a party and it is raided, all residents are charged and considered guilty whether you were part of party or not.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Many opportunities for nightlife on or off campus.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Plenty of parties to attend on weekends. Parties allow people to meet up.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Because of the cost, there tends to be upper middle class. There are a great % of African Americans and other ethnic groups on campus. It is a Methodist college but has all types of services available for all faiths.

4 College Junior

Academics: Academics are rigorous. Professors have high standards. Workload varies depending on class. Writing classes have a tremendous amount of assignments. Not uncommon to have over 15 papers due in one class

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Safety officers are real policemen and know your name on campus. The campus is very safe but the neighborhood around the campus has a lot of crime. The city of Norfolk is also dangerous and I would recommend travelling in groups when leaving campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Courses are rigorous and in most cases professors are there to help you but are very firm on due dates. Great liberal arts education and general education requirements are tough and in some cases seem irrelevant to what I'm majoring in. It's hard to get in all the classes you want because a great deal is offered only in spring or fall. Very few quality offerings in January.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Internships are offered but students have to seek these out on their own and sometimes can be a difficult process.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Freshman dorms are old and out of date. Free laundry services and WiFi in all dorms. Apartments and town houses are very spacious and up to date.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks do enjoy having parties. Greeks tend to house together but athletes also house together.

4 College Junior

Athletics: High level of support and spirit for Varsity sports. Great opportunities to get involved in all types of extracurricular sports and activities on campus. Students are highly spirited and enjoy supporting all the team's.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Virginia Wesleyan is a small close community of students and teachers. The campus is beautiful and dorms are very up to date. I feel like I have grown tremendously academically and have gained a sense of service and maturity because I've gone to school here. The professors are very helpful and the learning centers are very supportive for those of us who struggle academically. There are many opportunities for internships and mentorship. The only things that would deter me from this school again is the cost which is much higher than public schools but very competitive with other private colleges. Also the college needs to improve its student council which have no idea how to use due process for conflicts.

5 College Sophomore

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I start my freshman year of college this falll of 2015. So far I have been to one orientation and it was so nice there. Everyone was friendly and I felt like I was at home. College is right around the corner and I am so excited to be attending VWC.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am very pleased with my school and I am lucky to be attending. I love all the staff i have met with, they are wonderful people. I also like how the school is small and you can get to know everyone on a more personal level.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Virginia Wesleyan is a beautiful campus. I love the fact that I can build a relationship with my professors and easily make friends. Everything is easily accessible and it's fun place to be. If i could do school all over again VWC wouldn't be my first option due to the lack of Greek Life and other fun events other places have.
