Administration: You aren't truly a Wesleyan student if you haven't hated the administration in some capacity during your four years here. Whether they're expelling students to improve their PR image or letting perpetrators of sexual assault off scot-free, they know how to royally mess up the lives of students.

Administration: The school is kind of strict at times, but for the most part they are pretty lenient. As long as they are not risking their jobs, they do compromise with students.

1 College Senior

Administration: Funny how they can be getting higher and higher salaries, raising tuition, and still taking funding away from everything which once made this school great. Life at Wesleyan feels like a constant battle between the administration and the students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Wesleyan "authorities" (e.g., Public Safety or "P-Safe") are very lax in their enforcement of school rules/the law. On any given day, you will see multiple people sitting on Foss Hill smoking weed, sometimes out of conspicuously large bongs, and they will not get "busted." However, if you are stupid and do something right in front of the Po-Po, they might get you in trouble. Getting in "trouble" ranges from getting a warning to getting SJB'd (sent in front of the Student Judicial Board), which could result in another warning, writing a paper/apology letter, community service hours, or more serious punishments, depending on what you did wrong. There is very little crime committed by Wes kids other than underage drinking and drug use, some vandalism (art), and public nudity. Fire safety inspections happen in residences randomly, but they are not allowed to open drawers, so as long as you don't leave illegal things out in the open, you will be fine.

Interaction with the Middletown Police is strained, after an incident where they broke up a party using unnecessary force. However, students mostly only interact with P-Safe officers, and the Middletown Police only come when there is an emergency or a particularly rowdy party.
