Review of Wesleyan University

Rating: StarStarStarStarStar_gray By: Am V., Alum Posted: September 15, 2010

My review

The Good:

Academics were excellent and student-teacher ratio was very low. Plenty of seminars with less than 5 students, even self-created seminars... JRR Tolkein anyone? We did with just 4 students and a faculty advisor. Access to great science - how about a biology or astronomy thesis were you get to run the instruments yourself!?

The Bad:

Small and insular. Middletown is not very cosmopolitan.

Would I do it again?

Yes, Had a tremendous educational experience and probably spent the best 4 years of my life.

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Class sizes

The financial aid process went smoothly and I received the financial aid I needed.

Professors are generally Accessible

The night life is Memorable

Every student at this school needs thick skin and willingness to change their opinions if convinced

Most students spend their Saturday nights reading and going out visiting friends
