Kentucky Wesleyan College Reviews
I like the faculty and staff at the college, along with the diversity of the campus and the generous financial aid packages that they offer. They want students to succeed and constantly contact us about jobs, internships, and campus activities going on. The teachers want us to succeed and make an effort to ensure everyone understands the subjects.
Kentucky Wesleyan College is a small but diverse institution in Owensboro, Kentucky. It offers a wide selection of majors, minors, and courses for students of all interests. The faculty and staff are excellent, and the only complaint I have is the price. KWC is a very expensive school, averaging at roughly $20,000-$30,000 per year.
I absolutely love attending Kentucky Wesleyan. Since it is a small provate school, class sizes are much smaller and more beneficial. All of the staff, from professors to mainteneance staff, know you and are very friendly. I live on campus, and the dorms are a little better than average. The campus food is also about average. Since the student body measures about 700, it seems as if everyone knows everyone, and cliques are almost nonexistent. Athletes are friends with the students in Greek life, who are friends with the students who participate in performing arts.
