Texas Wesleyan is a wonderful university. The classes are very small along with the campus compared to other typically large college classes and campuses, this helps a lot because it's easy to navigate through to where you need to be. The staff is very helpful, kind and patient as well. I have never felt judged, only encouraged. If I ever need help my academic adviser is always willing to help me and I am rarely left stranded. There are friendly faces everywhere!

The online experience has become a must due to COVID-19 related issues to maintain social distancing. For students that need an in-class experience like me, it becomes relatively harder to focus, especially when many professors rely on powerpoints instead of whiteboards to explain content. Student answers are usually limited to text on chat, as microphone based answers are usually limited to the quality of audio and microphone. Technical difficulties usually get in the way, leading to time loss, thus less class time.

Due to less class time, there usually is less material covered, or skimming through chapters. It usually is the latter of the two problems, and assignment overflooding becomes an issue in the long run, especially with some professors. Though teaching quality in itself is very good such that the statements above are fairly negligible, with exceptions to a few professors.
Texas Wesleyan University is a small and smarter focused university, where the main goal is to have smaller classes, such that students have more access and time with professors, which is always the case. The professors are fully willing to help you achieve high grades, and the university has an academic success center to further emphasize this goal. The sports organization is more so inclined to American nationals.

While the cafeterias sure do provide several meal plan options, vegans might have a problem with their everyday needs, since meal plan options are relatively overpriced. Dormitory communities are not excellent, though they are improving over time. Dormitories themselves are relatively old, but not a problem, though maintenance is relatively average to poor. If one can afford prices to live on campus, it directly depends on what one requires.
