The “flexible and passionate” professors at Wes typically hold anywhere from three to five office hours a week, making them extremely accessible for students.
The academic experience is “rigorous but not competitive. At Wesleyan, education extends beyond the classroom; students “teach each other every day through intellectual discourse and extracurricular activities.” Wesleyan is all about “promoting dialogue and...seeing the world with a big picture mindset.” There is “a mature emphasis on emotional and physical well-being” on the part of the student body, and people feel free to be themselves and “pursue [their] passions with the support and acceptance of [their] peers.”
The social life at Wesleyan is “extremely vibrant. “A typical weekend can be filled with exorbitant amounts of performances and sports events.” There is a small Greek life here, including co-ed frats, for those who want it with “multiple Greek houses that are always busy on the weekends, as well as the senior housing area.” “You rarely find an athlete or musician who just participates in their sports team or band and does not do anything else,” says a student.
Almost nobody leaves on the weekends, so the campus is “constantly lively,” and the social scene is generally centered on musical performances. “Any given weekend night, there are at least three different concerts going on, both student bands and visiting artists.”
