Party Scene

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.

Party Scene: Wesleyan is a very sober school so there will not be parties on campus. You will really enjoy the nightlife if you have a source of transportation. They clubs downtown are really hyped. There are also always parties on Mercer.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not many places to just go and dance but the clubs are fun to just go to.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't start school until Aug 10. 2014

Party Scene: The nightlife occurs off campus. For the most part, students are enabled to create their nightlife on campus in a safe environment.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

For Wesleyannes, there isn't exactly a plethora of nightlife options. While there are a few clubs and bars in the area, students must rely on their own transportation to get there, which is kind of a bummer. Overall, though, the options that are available are for both underagers and of-agers, so most of the bases are covered, which is good if you are under 21 and looking for something to do on the weekends. 

If you are looking for on-campus nightlife, your options are going to be limited. Wesleyan is not really a party school. While students are able to entertain themselves, the entertainment doesn't really involve drinking or the typical college "nightlife" you would find at other schools.
