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!
Review Nebraska Wesleyan University
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.
So far, I have had a wonderful experience that I do not regret at all. The teachers I have had have all shown support, as have the other faculty members. I feel that they truly care about the students.
Additionally, the dorms and the dinning hall are well kept. The cafe is always a good place to go to, and the library has good research materials.
An issue, however, is in the occasional underground-pipe burst on campus grounds, though this is more due to rather drastic freezing temperatures that have lately occurred during the winter rather than failure of design. However, construction to fix said pipes do not usually cause much interference with daily life.
