Nebraska Wesleyan University has a great campus, great students, and wonderful professors. I recommend going to Nebraska Wesleyan for the small feel university. While attending this school you will also feel the close-knit community with a big city feel of Lincoln. There is always something to do whether on campus or in Lincoln.

Nebraska Wesleyan has many different organizations to join from sororities and fraternities, intramurals, to other organizations. I am in International Relations Organization, this organization you interact and have fun with foreign exchange students. We have many exchange students. I would consider Nebraska Wesleyan to have a diverse community.

Nebraska Wesleyan University is a place that I can call home. When walking to and from classes, the atmosphere is welcoming and safe. All the professors on campus will stop to say hello to you and ask how you are doing. You cannot ask for a more inviting University. When a high school student is struggling to decide where to go to college, I always tell them to take a tour at Nebraska Wesleyan University. My first tour here, I knew that this is where I wanted to go to college. Nebraska Wesleyan might be in the capital city, but once your on campus it feels like you are in your own little town. I would recommend Nebraska Wesleyan University to any in state and out of state high school students. Go Prairie Wolves!
Nebraska Wesleyan is a great school to go to if you're looking to be a person and not a number. The student to teacher ratio is about 12:1! Your professors will know you by name and they are also fantastic resources for you when you are in need of improvement. There are also many activities on campus to keep you busy, but don't get too busy because there are some great sports teams to join as well, if you're up to it. Everyone is very welcoming at the school, and is also excited that you're there on this journey with them.
