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 has mildew growing in the corners and ceiling of dorm rooms which has been reported to the resident assistants and advisor and still has not been dealt with. Also the dorms resemble a prison with white brick walls inside, destroying and feel for creativity. students to steal from other dorm rooms because the door room doors can be easily opened not to mention that some room keys can open other room doors and has led to several rooms being broken into and having students personal belongings stolen, items such as game systems, jewellery, money, etc.. And the campus security does practically nothing about it. However the professors are great but the school lacks tools and resources to fully exemplify a good college learning experience and the college is dirty because they have the football team;(i play)Clean the campus every Monday which doesn't make sense because they pay people to do that.
North Carolina Wesleyan College is truly a wonderful school. I have been here for 2 months and I love it so much already. My favorite thing about the school is definitely the tight-knit community that exists on campus. With less than a thousand students studying at Wesleyan, it is easy to make friends and build a family in a short amount of time. The international student body also makes Wesleyan's campus very rich and vibrant. No matter where you're from, you can always find somebody you identify with at Wesleyan. Students are given the opportunity to share their cultures, values and languages with everyone around them and this fills the campus with a melange of young men and women from different walks of life. Unlike many Southern US schools, Wesleyan has a student from every continent in the world. (except Antarctica, of course!) What I would like to see at Wesleyan is a change in the cafeteria menu and a serious renovation for the Nash Hall, which is where i currently live.
