Texas Wesleyan is an outstanding private University! Smaller. Smarter. The classes are small which I believe hold up to no more than 40 students per class. That which is an advantage, and not only because you get to communicate with your Professor consistently but also because Wesleyan is awesome! They have a variety of clubs and organizations that help and assist students involve themselves in activities and internships! Our staff members involve themselves as much as possible in order for students to find their right major. We are a big family , regardless of how small we are. Also, I will never get tired of saying this... Everyone is nice. Texas Wesleyan is a diverse, fun and successful University. We have late night activities, for example, bonfires, cookouts, "Naked but Real", (students come out to share there art pieces including poems, songs etc.) sand volleyball, free shirts, free meals on occasions and tea! I can go on and on but my words are limited!

The teachers are wonderful! The students are also great, but the financial aid sucks. It is terrible having to panic and come up with money you don’t have every semester. The tuition went up twice in the past two years. They pay almost everything for athletes that can fail classes, countlessly. It’s ridiculous for students who actually make A’s who have to take out loans on top of loans just so their classes don’t get dropped.
I loved that Wesleyan was in the DFW area -- I was able to find a good job when I got out without any problems. The professors expect a lot, but they are there to help anytime you have a question. Many of them are great with job leads and practical advice. The upper administration/President needs some work because they were combining majors that had nothing to do with each other. Rumors about some of the really great professors leaving are concerning. The President, Provost, and others in the administration don't seem to care that they are hurting students overall chances at good jobs by taking away contemporary programs. Otherwise, I think Wesleyan is an untapped resource for many people. You get out of it what you put into it -- if you work hard and forge professional relationships, you will do well and reap the financial benefits. Wesleyan has a great reputation in the business community.
