When The Princeton Review interviewed Wesleyan students, this is what they had to say:
“This diverse college is full of brilliant women devoted to sisterhood and tradition but manages to balance modern ideas and practices.”

Students compliment the “academic rigor, supportive atmosphere, diverse student body, nice facilities, and excellent classroom environment.”

“Professors are definitely the best part of Wesleyan. They are totally dedicated and engaging.”

“Professors encourage critical thinking and looking at things from different perspectives.”

“The professors here actually care about you, so don’t be surprised when you receive an email asking why you were not in class the previous day!”

“Classes are challenging but the academic experience is worth the cost of tuition.”

“The atmosphere is very uplifting and supportive. There is no failing unless you absolutely, positively strive to fail.”
