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.

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.

This school has provided me with an outstanding college experience. I did not know what to expect, as I came here as an older non-traditional student attending college for the first time. The professors have been excellent and easy to approach when needed. The courses have been equally engaging and interesting. No school is perfect, and I'm sure there are aspects that can be improved, but overall, this has been a wonderful life-enhancing expenditure of my time and efforts to better myself and seek a degree.
