3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is unique because anyone can start an organization.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They have been very awesome so far. Admissions was kind and informative. Same goes for Financial Aid.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I like the choices at the school, and you can expect a good filling meal.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I was able to meet with a Financial Aid employee and found them quite helpful in the process.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you want to be off campus but close to campus its not the safest but if you don't mind the drive its worth it.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The school doesn't throw any parties, however off campus parties are thrown by school organizations and team. Those are great for meeting people and everyone is always welcoming and it is a safe environment.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: They have so many different options that accommodate almost all financial classes, and ethnicity groups.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dinning hall is usually clean. The layout of the food is accommodating for most allergies. They have vegetarian sections and gluten free sections as well as hot and cold selections and breakfast can be served all day. Generally the food is fresh and they also have some healthy selections and a smoothie bar.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you expect financial aid from the school you either need to be really smart academically for a scholarship or your parents need to be below middle class or divorced or dead for financial aid. Other wise they hardly acknowledge the fact that you need help paying for school and their go to solution is loans.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a freshman at Wesley College in Dover Delaware and will be starting this August. Although I do not live on campus yet being that I am on the softball team there and I spent some time on campus in the dorms for clinics and my visits I was able to get a review during my time there. The campus is beautiful and the dorms are bigger then most colleges that I visited. I am going to be marrying my boyfriend who is in the Airforce and base however I am required to live on campus for my first 2 years with a meal plan. If I lived off campus my tuition will drop atleast $20,000 a year but I can not move off campus until I am married or complete my first 2 years. I am 18 years old and have no financial help from my family and work a minimum wage job to try to pay for living expenses on campus as well as my bills.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: If it's not a Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday, the the food is terrible. Unless you get it made fresh from Ms. Julie or Mr. James, Because they make good food. But even then their food selection can become repetitive and boring. Tuesdays are Taco Tuesday, and so almost nothing but tacos is served, Fridays, no one wants to work and just wants to go home, so they put less effort into the food, and the same can be said about the weekends. The Stop always has the same things everyday, and the Den is expensive, but both have good food. As for the grocery basket, they have awesome food, but because I have little cash I can only go there sometimes. All in all the food is bearable, but it could be better.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's not the greatest thing in the world, but it's not the worst either. The people can be very loud and rude much of the time, but some of them are actually very nice and respectful. The campus is small and its exterior appearance is kept clean and presentable, but many of the students living in the dorms treat the interior, especially the bathrooms, with disrespect and make the place dirty. Although there are janitors who come in every morning Monday through Friday to clean. The most interesting aspect of the campus is its ability to consolidate. Many departments intermingle on the same floor and many of the classrooms are shared between departments. For example there may be an 8 am class on history and a 9 am class on political science in the same room. Many of the teachers make learning the material simple to understand and easy to follow. Some teachers are tough on rules while others are more relaxed. All in all the place is okay. It's nothing prestigious but it is in a quite community where not much action occurs. The curriculum is good and the teachers are good, but many of the students still have that high school mentality where they can be childish and rude and procrastinate on their work and then wonder why they're failing.

4 College Junior

Majors: It varies with each program.

4 College Junior

Diversity: A lot of diversity, and there are so many different people to meet.

4 College Junior

Academics: English is a great major, if you love it and if you dedicate.

We have Gibson, Clack, Bobby, De Roche, Maxson, Shipley and Turner, as well as some adjuncts. Having the top four, you'll know the struggle of writing papers and dealing with Clack's strict rules but its worth it. Even though the school doesn't care about writing or English, it is immensely worth it.

There are three concentrations and you have to be really careful that you catch all the English classes before someone goes on Sabbatical or it's only offered sometimes. It'll hold you back.

We have the 4th floor which is shared with Humanities, Media Arts and Religion. Media Arts has the nicer stuff but you can't get in if you're not in a Media Arts class or a major/minor.

5 College Junior

Academics: Wesley has some really great professors.

Now there are some exceptions (Mr. Olsen, who changes the grading scale two weeks before finals), but otherwise I have no complaints other than the usual "I don't feel like reading old British Literature".

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: You will always be able to get involved on Wesley's campus. If you chose not too, enjoy being in your room most of the time. Dover is very boring without friends.

3 College Junior

Local Area: I'm from a small violent city called Chester Pa, so Dover is nothing to me. I have noticed it's steadily gotten worse since 2012.

Dover is a kinda do nothing town. Downtown Dover is probably the best thing about the town. You can walk around the historical district, you can walk downtown and it's nice. The Schwartz center has shows there and the Biggs Museum/Archives. It's not bad but it's not great.

A car does help.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm so glad I'm graduating soon.

Talk to professors. I would say going the underground railroad route for a job is better than the official crap. You make friends with any of these professors they will hook you up. Go see your professors its worth it.

I work in the ARC. I'm new so I don't have many hours but you can easily get a job on campus.

Internship? Still trying to get this together, advisors will not help you.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As an English Major, I love my professors. I mostly deal with Music, Media Arts and English but I have taken Science and Math courses. With English, everything is left up to you. It really emphasizes critical thinking and in depth reading and I guess Lit Theory. Greto is basically the face of the Media Arts department now, and his classes are intense. As for Music, I really love it and reccommend it to anyone. Laganella is an ass but Wilson and Cass are cool.

I wish each program had more classes available and more professors. Departments are kind of small.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Everything time you go to the Wellness Center, you will get the diagnosis of Bronchitis and "are you pregnant?" Even when they had a real doctor they point you to every other clinic in the entire world. Go home instead.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: It's more diverse than it used to be.There is the Divine Nine, and Kappa Si and all that but the biggest organizations on campus are Alpha Phi Delta, Delta Phi Epsilon and Alpha Phi Omega. APD is Italian/White, DPhie is white, kinda mixed and APO is coed, community service and mixed.APD is the only real fraternity that has a shi**y house and has parties. They are okay.DPhie has events but honestly they are REALLY stuck up and they act like Mean Girls characters.APO is okay and pretty helpful but they have a lot of infighting issues.Stick to yourself or join one of the newer ones instead.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's not a college town but you have Hibachi's, Yukon Bar and Grill, alot of Irish places, McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, Green Turtle and Chipotle. There are a lot of in between places that are good too.

3 College Junior

Administration: Don't be stupid, don't get caught up, don't be loud and don't trust people you don't know. My suitemate had a grudge against my friend about her boyfriend and almost got us all a 200 dollar citation. I'm telling you, if you live in Zimmerman, be careful. In other dorms, I think it's about the same.

As far as classes go, it depends on the professor. They determine the attendance policies. Although, you might as well go because if you suck in that class, you will continue to suck if you don't go.

For parking I can't say.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: I say it's great because we all know why we go party - to get turned up. And you get that at Wesley. If you want weed it's easy, alcohol it's really easy. And if you know enough people, you know where the parties are and where you can smoke. Most people 21 and over will buy alcohol for you and weed isn't hard to find. The biggest thing to remember at Wesley is NEVER.GET.CAUGHT. Literally ever RA will tell you how to get away with murder and all you have to do is listen.

As for parties, they aren't like the college parties in the movies. Diverse/Caucasian parties have house music/pop music/trap music and kegs. It's becoming more BYOB. Black parties are dark/and definitely BYOB with loud music and more of a dance/twerk feel. Go for the diverse parties. It's more fun and it's more social.
