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.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is great but firm when need be

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.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Wesleyan College has various policies in place to maintain a pleasant environment on campus and protect its students. Upon entering her first semester, a student is required to sign an honor pledge that informs her of the school’s honor code. It is a pledge of academic and social honesty, and each student is expected to uphold it throughout her duration at the College. Overall, the school places more emphasis on some policies than others and may let an individual off with a warning for minor offenses. For example, there are scheduled quiet hours which prohibit any loud noise in the dorms after midnight on weekdays and 2 a.m. on weekends. If a student is being disruptive during quiet hours, resident advisers will ask her to quiet down and respect the policy. On the other hand, the school has many strict rules for dorm visitation, which vary in severity depending on the dorm building. The policy that has remained with the institution the longest, however, is the alcohol policy. Applying even to the faculty and staff, the alcohol policy makes Wesleyan a dry campus, and violators face heavy consequences if caught.

The campus police are fairly tolerant about most policies that do not involve drugs, alcohol, or the endangerment of other students. Under the circumstances of moving in or moving out of the residence halls, they overlook minor parking violations; however, if it leads to a traffic problem, they will fine the individual. Resident advisers can also be lenient about some Residence Life policies, such as kitchen cleanliness or noise level, but if they think it will get out of hand, they correct it immediately. Wesleyan’s administration, as a whole, is interactive with students, but is the least flexible group on campus.
