As a athlete on the Wesley field hockey team, I completely agree that sports are a huge part at Wesley. Other sports teams, including the hockey team, are fully committing for both studies and school work. The campus supports the athletes by attending games and keeping up with records and the seasons, but also students have each other's backs when we need to leave for a game and can't make it to lecture and need to have notes. As an athlete, it is hard to balance sometimes, which is good to have different friend groups so studying for different classes become easier. The locker room and the field also is a good outlet to find quiet to study, which is a perk for the athletes alone!

Although it is only one year, freshman dorms are in need of serious remodeling! It was really upsetting to have to share a bathroom with the whole floor and have to hope that the bathrooms weren't disgusting by the time you woke up to take a shower. I understand freshman year is a learning experience and you are able to move into the nicer dorms while switching class levels, but the freshman dorms need more than a custodian once a day. The RA's also make a big deal about overnight guests that ATTEND the same school. If they are planning to spend the night and they are not a student of Wesley, then yes I understand they should require a overnight form, BUT, if they are a student, then we should not be getting fined.

I am very happy with my decision to choose Wesley as my school to further my education and sports career. The professors are easy to understand and open about any questions or concerns anyone may have. The professors understand that college is hard for the first year and try to work with you as much as they can as long as the student puts forth the effort as well. Living on campus was a new and fun experience and I've met some of the greatest people while being at school for the few short months of the fall semester, which made spring semester something to really look forward to. I'm happy to be returning back to Wesley in the fall and have high hopes of new things coming my way!
