I enjoy going to school at Nebraska Wesleyan University because it is a welcoming environment. Every person on campus is there to help whether it is a professor or a fellow student. I have already made meaningful connection only being a student for one semester. I can honestly say I do not think there is one bad thing about Wesleyan! I love everything about this University.

Nebraska Wesleyan drove me into the career field of Chiropractics. I began my journey as an athletic training major and upon graduation, my advisors saw my determination in owning a practice one day and drove me to the path of Chiropractic school. Now only 4 weeks away from beginning my doctorate, I can certainly say that Nebraska Wesleyan not only offered top tier education, advising, and career building skills, but also grew me as a healthcare individual that is determined to help his community and all those seeking medical attention.
I love it here at Nebraska Wesleyan. I am a sophomore and I transfered last year from the University of Lincoln after my freshman year. Class sizes are perfect. I have an average of about 20 students in each class, which allows me to be more engaged in class and comprehend the information. The class size also allows for lots of hands on learning which helps solidify the knowledge learned even more. I've also been able to get to know and connect personally with every single one of my teachers. The education is amazing, the campus size is perfect, and everyone is friendly. The only downfall is the cost of going to school, it is very pricey.
