Nebraska Wesleyan University Reviews
Visiting Wesleyan was an amazing experience that I definitely will not forget. When I first arrived at the campus, the modern also new look of it just caught my eye. They had buildings that have been their for years and some that had just been built. The people on campus and in the buildings were very welcoming and accepting. I enjoyed meeting the professors and getting their input on what path I should take for my career choice. I liked the dorms/housing because they were pretty updated and we actually got to have a look inside them. They have quite a bit of space and they can be made to feel like home. I also liked how there was a police station right beside the University and that their is security guards on campus at all times. I enjoyed meeting with the softball coach, she was a very genuine person and seemed to love the game. In all, NWU is a great college and you should visit sometime!
Nebraska Wesleyan encompassed all that I was looking for as an individual: great location, great diversity, excellent academics, people who are willing to work with you. It is truly an amazing university, creating such a warm and welcoming community!
I have been loving my experience here at Nebraska Wesleyan University. There are great opportunities for students in many different aspects. I am still looking for many more scholarships as NWU doesn't offer many through the school. College here is amazing and there are great resources to help students for academics. The professors are very helpful and understanding for students. I would not want to be anywhere else!
