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.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's Norfolk/ Virginia Beach. It's in the suburbs of a city.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial Aid is a pain regardless of where you go. Pretty typical.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Food is terrible. Not enough options, lines are always long and food that is prepared takes too long. Food also gives people diarrhea.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: Rooms have flaws, the bathrooms are filthy, and maintenance works in the early hours in the mornings which wakes people up. Cost is way too high for what the rooms are.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: they get nice townhouses and think they're hot stuff. just not my cup of tea, free friends are good friends

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I only feel unsafe on campus when walking behing batten/boyd. I have had multiple friends robbed/attacked there or followed by sketchy people. its not the security gate in fault but the ease for strangers ti walk on campus from behing the baseball/softball fields

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: laundry is great but there's too many people for one machine. everyone pretty much stays to themselves as there is no real common area to socialize, housing lottery is an unorganized living hell, far more expensive than off camus housing around the area is

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: beach, norva and farm bureau for concerts, huge mall, minor league baseball and hockey, tons for theatres for plays, and symphonies

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The honors and scholars scholarship is the only aid I receive besides loans. Tip 1: If you have a father that makes a moderate amount of money, and have an unemployed mother and 4 brothers, two of which are also in college, don't worry, financial aid doesn't factor in the cost of three tuitions, you wont get much help and it is a hassle to get FASFA to go through which results in still no financial assistance from the government or the school. Tip 2:have a child, join the milirary, or get married before coming here if you don't want to be perpetually in debt for going to your dream school. Odds are they'll end up paying you to go here rather than making you pay unbelievable amounts of money, its only fair in the name of capitalism.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It food in the dining hall is usually okay, but sometimes there's nothing good to eat. There are limited options on the weekends and there are certain days the food is subpar. There isn't always much variety. The dining hall seating is great.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: it is difficult to compete in the increasing larger class sizes that the classrooms are not made for. The most important criteria for admission are that you try hard and get good grades in high school. They want to know they are accepting students with the will and drive to succeed and achieve and education and success in life.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are nice and know a lot about the area they are teaching. Most are also doing research in their area of study. The curriculum is good. The registration process is usually easy; if there are any issues it isn't too difficult to get them resolved quickly. Workload is average.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The Greek housing is really nice, but they are kind of snobby and closed off to other people (more true of the sororities than the fraternities).

Athletics: I would say it's average. We're a small campus. A lot of students are involved with sports, and the teams' performances vary on the sport. Fan support varies on the sport (men's basketball being the most supported). School spirit is good. The athletic facilities seem good.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process is as easy as applying for your FAFSA. The office is really helpful and nice as well and makes it easier to understand. They also notify you of when something on your aid changes.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most people at Wesleyan are very social, friendly, and open to everyone. The sports teams and Greek chapters get cliquey, but it's like that at every school. Overall, everyone gets along well and mesh together.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greeks seem snobby and cliquish. Most non-Greeks are indifferent towards them, but the Greek life seems stupid.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have yet to choose an internship, but the staff is extremely helpful in assisting students in pursuing one.

Party Scene: The frats have some okay parties with a lot of dancing and music. You can only get into the better parties if you have connections, but the sports teams' parties are the best.
