I like the small campus, it helps you get to know the professors and the students. The class sizes are also small which means when you need from the professor they can usually help you right in class.
Review Iowa Wesleyan University
I like how everyone was friendly and welcoming. The professors are amazing and make it seem like we can actually talk to them. Student life could be improved though. There's not many activities for students in Mt.Pleasant to participate in.
The school has small class sizes, so you can get one-on-one help from teachers. It is easy to get involved. The campus is small, no need to wake up an hour before class! The farthest walk is 4 mins (2 mins if you run). Every student must complete and internship (student teaching/clinicals count) before they graduate. Service Learning is a giant part of the school and how we can give back to the community.
