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!
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.
Tennessee Wesleyan is a great local private college that is very accepting and is down home and friendly. The staff and professors are wonderful and they truly make you feel like you belong. When I stepped foot on Wesleyan's campus everyone made me feel like I belonged and that I was at home. Being on the basketball team I am gone often for games, but the professors are always very willing to work with you. Because of the low number of students, it feels more personal with your professors. This was a huge factor for me when choosing a college/university to go to. If you are looking for a college or university that offers a great education, and that will make you feel at home, i would highly recommend going to Tennessee Wesleyan University for your college career. You will not regret it.
