North Carolina Wesleyan College Reviews
While North Carolina Wesleyan College is a small school, it brings so much to the table. Staying engaged in student activities is a great way to get involved. while it's not in a big city, which most people prefer, NC Wesleyan college will surprise you and keep you on your toes if you make the most of it. Finding that right group of friends and staying active you'll fall in love with the small school. It feels like you know everybody because you probably do, it makes you feel at home. Dealing with classes, you get that one-on-one time with each professor where other schools lack. Having a small number of students in each class gives you a great learning opportunity to really achieve your best. It has everything you need to be sucessful when you graduate, everyone cares about each other here.
So far I have had a great time here at school! There are always opportunities to get involved and get active on campus. If you show effort, the teachers will meet you half way. They are very willing and open to assistance. My academic adviser is the absolute best. I am comfortable going to see her about anything whether it is school related or not. I was proactive about scheduling so for me, it was easy to get the classes I wanted at the times I wanted. However, they have yet to begin online registration methods but word around is that we should have it for next fall. One set back is that the business office and financial aid offices are not very efficient and are not always on the same page. I had to keep going back and talking with both of them to get one simple thing done that turned out to be a slack on their part. Also, there seems to be some unnecessary general education classes, but that is expected being though that this is a Christian, private school. Other than that I have had a fine time here. I like the small campus and class setting, so this was a good pick for me.
North Carolina Wesleyan College is a great 4-year college to attend. The Administrator, Laura Brown is a wonderful person at the Goldsboro campus. The staff and instructors are very helpful when you face some type of crisis during your time of studies. The college have a variety of classes to choose from and instead of just completing one major, you have the opportunity to complete two or three depending on your own pace. I completed two which was Religious Studies and Criminal Justice. I enrolled again to complete Psychology.
