5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love Wesleyan. The professors challenge me and mentor me academically and personally as I mature and learn what it means to be an independent woman in the 21st century. The sisterhood of Wesleyan in invaluable and the experience simply cannot be found anywhere else. This is a truly amazing campus and the faculty, staff and students play a major role in that superiority.

Overall Experience: I am currently attending the liberal arts women's college, Wesleyan College. One of the many elements that makes my school unique involves its rich history. It is the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women. It also has the world's oldest alumnae association, and it is the birthplace of the first sororities: the Alpha Deta Phi and the Philomathean Society. Another characteristic that makes my school unique is that its graduates include Mary McKay, the first woman in Georgia to receive a doctor of medicine degree and Viola Ross, the first woman to argue a case before the Supreme Court of Georgia. Last but not least, my school has been widely accredited for its overall success. For example, Wesleyan College was ranked #15 by Forbes' list of best college buys. In terms of my overall experience, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Wesleyan College. The campus is extremely beautiful, especially with the addition of our new Chapel. The campus also possesses a homely feel. The professor's are very encouraging and are always willing to put forth the extra effort to see their students succeed. Lastly, I enjoy the fact that the student population is very diverse. Meeting students from all over the world prepares me for my future career as I may be expected to work with individuals from different backgrounds.

Overall Experience: I love Wesleyan. The all pro-female environment can be very encouraging to young women. The classes are challenging because the professors expect a lot from students. Most every professor has a doctorate degree in the their field is knowledgeable and passionate.

Overall Experience: People glorify the school, saying that only smarter people are allowed, but of all the people I've talked to who are in my graduating class, I have the highest GPA (3.92).

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Okay, so I technically haven't even started at Wesleyan yet--I just wanted to enter to win a scholarship. However, the school and all its inhabitants are super friendly and happy! It's a great atmosphere with a lot of wonderful perks; like, all the special attention they give with presents (flowers, thumb drive, buttons, book bag, christmas ornament), they have many days where the school provides motivating activities, and a lot of things are free (laundry, parking, printing). They gave me a full tuition scholarship, which was just really great because my parents are not rich in the least. Wesleyan is a small, cozy, inviting place that appears to be the perfect place to learn.

Overall Experience: My school is a very great institution. The class sizes are very intimate, and the professors are amazing. My school is unique because it is the first college to grant degrees to women. I do wish that I attended an HBCU instead. Why, because I would like to experience going to school with people I can connect and relate to. I would like to learn more about African American culture without having to major or take extra classes to do so. Other than that I do love my school, I just wished there were more cultural events not only for FOREIGN students but black American students.

Off-Campus Dining: I personally like to go to eat off campus only if the cafeteria is closed for I am on the college life kind of budget. However, when I do venture out my favorite place to go is a chinese restaurant not five minutes away. It is very delisious and very cheap. I have found more than enough places to eat at near the school and each one is at a decent price. Thankfully they are not mostly fastfood places.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I have not been in trouble for something yet so my experience so far with the campus police has been positive. One police officer in general is very humble and is a fan of the school and its athletics. They are very involved but still know how to take their jobs seriously.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid workers help so much when it came to my financial problem's. What mattered to me mattered to them and together, we worked it out to where my first year was paid for. I continually go back to their offices just to talk to them. Even outside of work they smile and wave at me. They even ask me how I am doing and pressure me to keep applying for scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Personally I do not party. Being only a freshman I take my studies very seriously. The most that I have been out is twice and I was with more than ten people that I knew both times. Downtown Macon is the closest so one may find most students from my school to party there. Others find friends at Mercer and meet up with them.

Campus Food: Every week that I walk into the cafeteria I see a repetition of foods. Usually there are two sides in the cafeteria, one for fried foods and the other for "hot and fresh." As an athlete I try to eat healthy and remain towards the hot line. However the food, to me, is not overly great. The first week of school was amazing but as months pastor became dull to even look at. Recently, girls have been finding roaches in the cereal containers and others have complained about finding hairs and fly's in the food. I would rather go and eat at a nearby restaurant than spend my time there but for most, including me, it is my only option.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great for the most part because one becomes more social with other students. It is easier for me to live on campus because I originally live so far away. At my college, I find it that the dorms are larger compared to other colleges which is a plus. The cost of this school is by far its worst characteristic. The campus is full of different plant species which I personally find to my interest. Since we are an all women's college it can be a little dull for most girls bit over all the classroom size is perfect, the community is amazing, and I think another good quality that my school has is the amount of international students who come from all over the world. Unlike others, I get a foot in the door on how different cultures live their everyday lives.

Overall Experience: I like that the school is like one little community among the professors and students

Greek Life: No greek life at the school

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I dont know too much about athletics

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's mostly fast food chains so nothing to talk about

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is great but firm when need be

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a $10000 scholarship and the department is very willing to work with you.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It''s not very flavorful and I think healthier choices should be offered. There should be vegetarian options and more to choose from..

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Pizza and Chinese food are the main late-night options on campus if you do not have a car. However you could go to the Kroger to find food. Off-campus dinning depends on having a car, there are people on campus that are nice enough to give you a ride if you ask but having a car is much needed. Most of the restaurants around Wesleyan have student discounts which can be nice.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The school is strict to some extent and the rules are very understandable. The visitation policy and the alcohol use in dorms really depends on where you live on campus.Being that it is an all girls school, the visitation policy is very lenient , however in regards to male visitation it becomes really strict. The attendance policy, you usually have like three free absences that do not affect your grade. All in all it is very easy to understand the rules.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Wesleyan almost always give out merit-based scholarships. The merit-based scholarships just takes a little bit of the tuition. My GPA wasn't a really good(3.2) but I got a 8,000 a year scholarship. They also have other scholarships, I know a lot of people who have benefited from them. I did not qualify for them.

There is nothing more incredible than being surrounded by intelligent women from all over the world and feeling like you are all one, giant family. The sisterhood at Wesleyan College is unique to the women that make up our community and creates a bond that lasts a lifetime. Regardless of how involved some women are in sisterhood activities, at the end of the day, there is a sense of unity that is felt among students, as well as the alumnae. Wesleyan’s greatest asset is the student body because each individual possesses a special character that embodies the school’s ideals. Every peer has strong aspirations and an even greater appetite for success. It is this quality that allows professors to challenge students on an intellectual and personal level. Over a four-year period, Wesleyannes (Wesleyan students) cover academic material from all areas of study and simultaneously surpass the standards of their own degree. Although some programs are better structured in preparing students for certain careers over others, the faculty and staff work hard to ensure that all students will be highly successful in their field of work.

While a few aspects are disappointing, many students cannot imagine being anywhere else. Everything about the school has the students' best interests in mind, and the faculty and staff make an impact on your experience. Wesleyannes take full advantage of internship programs, networking opportunities, and interdisciplinary research where they can acquire skills necessary to excel in graduate school and their career. The community seems out of place in Macon, but that is because the Wesleyan College experience is unlike any other.
