Tennessee Wesleyan College Reviews
Older buildings, but smaller classes. I had issues with professors cancelling classes an hour prior to class start, and I was a commuter that drove over an hour each way so this was very inconvenient for me. The school is very focused on athletics, but expect their students to maintain their grades. Overall, I would recommend to anyone wanting smaller class sizes with great professors!
Tennessee Wesleyan College/University incorporates a campus with a hometown feel and a community experience. Any on-campus encounter is friendly and welcoming for those who prefer a smaller ratio of professor to student. Tennessee Wesleyan University currently hosts a 12:1 ratio of instructor to student in-classroom which translates to a higher learning degree. The only current downside to the institution is the lack of graduate degrees offered (business and occupational therapy MS).
Small classes, teachers are always there to help, or a phone call away. We do not have a football team but we do have an awesome athletics. So far homecoming weekend was the best! Lip sing was awesome to be apart of. So, many cultures, majors, athletics, and clubs come together to show talent! You won't be disappointed if you decide to come to TWU.
