Considering the size of the campus, everyone would know very fast if anything bad was to happen on campus. At all times there is campus security riding around and security cameras almost everywhere. The campus here is very safe and friendly and something dangerous almost never happens.
Review Kentucky Wesleyan College
When I came to Kentucky Wesleyan, I wasn't expecting anything that came my way. I was planning on sliding by and getting out in 4 years like I did in high school. But this college is much more than that. From KWC I have gained a friends, sisters, and a family that I will have for the rest of my life.
Very helpful, and joyful staff that are excited to help with your college experience. I came across several issues along the way with getting ready and the staff helped me every step of the way.
