2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There really is not much to do. There is typically one pretty good party on Saturday nights but it is mostly going to houses and socializing. We could definitely use clubs or hangout areas besides frats. There is no place to just dance and have fun. It can be fun if you make it fun but you have to be social. Many many many people complain about how bad the nightlife is.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Our party scene is positive because thats how many people meet since there is nothing else to do. Really the only semi large parties are at the frat houses. Its more socializing than drinking, dancing, doing drugs. Our parties consist of beer pong, music, and talking. The only nights people party is Saturday and some Wednesdays. Greek life events are the big social parties. All bars are 21 and older so half the students can't even go and be social and we have no clubs.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many different races and ethnicities. Wesleyan is expensive so many people are wealthy or are on scholarship for sports. Religion and political beliefs are diverse but neither are forced on you. The amount of diversity with out sports teams would be NONE. If it wasn't for sports that everyone would be white, wealthy, and smart.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I have never seen drugs on campus but marijuana and alcohol. Many people do smoke weed and drink. There is not much peer pressure.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wesleyan is very good for academics. The professors are good and courses are very in depth but are very challenging. There are many courses offered but with the amount of gen ed requirements, we have no time to take them. There is no easy class at all.... Each class is hard and all majors are hard. There is no such thing as a "free class" to fill a spot and not require much work. Class sizes are good and generally everyone is familiar with one another. You definitely get to know the professors in your major because you will have some of them 2 and 3 times.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The employment rate is very high so I would imagine this area is strong. There is not much around us so we are limited but the strength in our academics definitely helps. Many jobs such as teachers and educators have many opportunities but there is not many local medical facilities, sales businesses, law offices, or other large jobs. There is some alumni network but it is not used often for jobs and internships. Students come to wesleyan for the challenging education. Degrees from here are very hard but very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Our campus is pretty safe. I know many people that do not even lock their rooms. Many of the crimes (breaking into cars) is believed to be by people from the town and not by students. Our security takes parking tickets way to serious instead of focusing on bigger things. There are no special security measures in place but there doesn't really need to be. There are not cameras on campus and there should be. I do know of physical and sexual events that have lead to things but local police deal with those, not our security.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Premium housing is good because it is newer but Fleming is poorly taken care of. Dunn is the nicest of all. Standard living is very old, hot, and small. I can say The standard buildings have people cleaning more than the premium but the bathrooms are still bad in standard. Most people live on campus because its easy, but there is barely any apartments on campus which is hard. The biggest issue is not being able to make your own food because our dining hall is TERRIBLE and sometimes people can't make it during their hours. Places to cook would be awesome. Social atmosphere is fine and people are friendly but nobody ever has multiple people in 1 room because they are so small. The lobby and study rooms are helpful for homework in Premium.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is our ONLY form of social life at Wesleyan. I would say almost 70% of people are involved in Greek Life. It is the only thing we have that is fun or eventful for students. Our greek life does a huge amount of community service and loves helping directly in Buckhannon. Greek and non-greeks get along fine and often hangout. Events surrounding greek life are the only times something fun happens at school. We have no place to go unless its a frat house. We have nowhere to eat, dance, shop, meet with friends, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Our school really really really struggles in football and that brings down the entire mood of campus. Football season is a ghost town and everyone leaves for the weekends because they go to other colleges and watch games because ours are not worth watching. Our Women's soccer team and Women's and Men's track are very strong, but other than that, our athletics are average. We definitely need more school spirit and better team performance because many students are coming for sports and then transferring because the teams are so bad. Sports could help draw students in, but instead it is pushing them away. Many of our students are on athletic teams, but the amount of students transferring in and out is outrageous. Athletics is all there is in Buckhannon, so if we don't have that, then people will leave.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Academically WVWC is very strong, therefore many students strive to always do their best. Many students at WV Wesleyan are involved in the community and on campus. There are not many students at Wesleyan that are just going to school. Almost everyone is affiliated with a club, group, athletic team, or greek life. Wesleyan focuses a lot on community service and you can always find a way to help others. The cirrocumuli is very challenging but It appears to be positive for student long-term.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes are good. The only thing I will comment on is the variety of courses. In some areas they are okay, but in others they are lacking. In my opinion, just because it is a liberal arts school, does not mean it needs to lack things that are not arts related.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: From what I have experienced, health and safety have been just fine at Wesleyan.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dunn Hall are what all of my answers are based on. I loved living there and will be doing so again this year. Some of the other halls are more run down and need help, but Fleming and Dunn are by far the nicest. I think the social atmosphere of the dorms is fantastic. Once again, I would not live anywhere else, unless that be off campus. As far as cost goes, I think room and board are absolutely ridiculous. I have a tuition waiver because my mother works at the college, but that does not include room and board. I could almost go to another university for the same price that I'm paying for ONLY my room and board here at Wesleyan. The prices keep increasing and I think some serious consideration needs to be put into this because students are not going to be able to afford this school if things continue, financial aid or not.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I just joined Alpha Xi Delta in the spring and I could not have made a better decision. Greek life has brought me so many more true friends and I could have not asked for better. Because of sorority, I have also been able to participate in many more activities, such as things for our philanthropy, or events we host. Mostly community engagement things that I had not done before. Greek life is somewhat indifferent to non-Greeks, I mean of course you have some that dislike the Greek students, but overall I think indifference is more of what I have seen. Greek life has brought me nothing but positivity and I would not change it for the world.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students are very involved with athletics. Honestly, most of the campus population is on some sort of sports team. The school's facilities are great overall. They are now almost up to date on any and everything (they're currently building new tennis courts). Certain teams will go as a tem to other sporting events, but even if they do not you can almost always find individuals from multiple sports teams in the stands.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Wesleyan. I do play volleyball for the school, but I would have to say that the intramural sports (specifically volleyball) offered are my favorite thing to do. With that being said, the people that go to Wesleyan are unique within themselves, and I think that is why intramural sports are so much fun. The students and faculty at Wesleyan are so inviting and helpful. I also joined a sorority this spring (Alpha Xi Delta) and I could not be happier. When you hear of Wesleyan, you will also probably hear something about it being "a home among the hills." I live about five minutes from the school, but live on campus during the school year and it truly is my second home. I would have never imagined choosing anywhere else to attend now that I have completed my first year. I would absolutely choose Wesleyan time after time if I could do it all again, and would recommend the school to anyone and everyone.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is huge on our campus and seems to be integrated highly into the community.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Overall our teams are not outstanding but there are select teams who rank regionally and even nationally year after year.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is small enough that you are able to get the necessary one on one help for the more challenging classes but is big enough that it doesn't feel like high school part 2.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are currently no lights around the student parking lot. While everyone walks to class for those who do drive to part time jobs or for errands it feels unsafe to walk alone. The community seems very quiet and safe. Friendly towards college kids.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Its a small school so everyone knows everyone yet there is a good amount of respect for privacy and for other people's opinions and differences. Very little gossiping and very few cliques. Everyone is encouraged to be social and even really shy people seem to find their niche. Lots of spaces to gather for study groups, social groups and clubs. Its a really nice school. Very comfortable, beautiful older buildings surrounded by parks, walking trails and waterways. Really safe, nice neighborhoods. Safe community.
