Iowa Wesleyan University Reviews

Iowa Wesleyan is not a school I am particularly happy to be in. The school has very few things going for it. One of those things is the outstanding financial aid. The school was the most affordable for me to pay off. The only other benefits would be a small campus size that makes for easy traveling from class to class and free tutoring in the library. Other than that everything else is quite underwhelming. The food in the cafe is really bad, it can taste bland and sometimes undercooked. Even though I am here for the majority reason of expenses, I came to this school for sports also since it is the only one that guaranteed a spot on the baseball team. The problem is the teams but the football team have no funding. Leaving the sports here to be under average and lacking financial support. The worst things are the dorms, they are tiny and lack some important properties like the boys dorm not having a kitchen.

Iowa Wesleyan is a small university if your looking for small class sizes, more unique relationships with professors that actually care about your education.
I love it! Out of all the schools I have visited, Iowa Wesleyan is that one that I feel most home at.
