I am a freshman at KWC. I have , in a very short period of time, developed and grown so much. The professors know you by name whether you are in their classroom or not. The atmosphere is one of encouragement, personal growth and development for all. The campus is beautiful and easy to get around. Campus life has something for everyone and it's strongly encouraged to get involved whether it's clubs, athletics, Greek life or community service. There is also something going on around campus to get involved and if you're bored and have nothing to do it's your own fault. There's something for everyone . Most important for me is that there is a family atmosphere and I'm proud to call KWC my home away from home for the next 4 years.
Review Kentucky Wesleyan College
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.
The campus is wonderful. It is a small campus and allows for everyone to know one another. The professors are great, friendly, and willing to help.
