Virginia Wesleyan College Reviews
This is a great college for people not quite ready for the full college experience I think. The classrooms are small as far as student wise. The average is 14 students per classroom, so unlike other major colleges you get one on one time with the professor. If it weren't for this system I probably wouldn't have excellent grades. They also have tutoring and other resources to help you. As far as i'm concerned, living on campus is a nightmare, especially for freshmen. People are very loud and childish at 1:00 in the morning. The bathrooms are disgusting from people not flushing and the toilets getting clogged. But from what I heard if you survive freshman year with not terrible grades you move to the sophomore dorms where things should be a bit better. Other than that, everything else as far as the gym, athletics, food, and other activities is pretty decent.
I am currently A sophomore at Virginia Wesleyan College and have attended the school for a total of four semesters. I found the people on campus to be very welcoming and friendly towards new comers. The atmosphere was one that was very inviting and I was able to fit in easily. However, I found myself wanting more out of the school with regards to on campus life such as social events and things of that nature. I found that there was a lack in on campus events that got students really involved with their fellow peers and faculty on campus. I feel as though if more campus events took place, it would in turn create more unity among students campus wide. I have had a great experience so far with regards to living on campus. students living on campus. In conclusion, there are several areas of the campus that could use immediate reconsideration, but other than that I find Virginia Wesleyan to be a great school and my experience has been wonderful.
The dorm rooms are spacious. However, the cost of living on this campus is not affordable after a student's freshman year. The campus has a severe insect problem and villages one and two desperately need an update. I have personally had to remove a trash from a hall below me because there was not one provided for my hall for two weeks. In addition, maintenance does not provide toilet paper to tenants who have a share a bathroom or have their own because they do not manually clean them. However, I remember specifically receiving a weekly roll from maintenance when I had a private room. Ultimately I am disguised with the living situation on campus and happily forward to graduate so I no longer need to be associated with this college. I would not recommend students to live on campus or they need to transfer their freshman year. Overall, housing on campus is poor piss and there are no excuses for that especially when the tuition is $34,960.00 per year not including standard room and board. the campus is quick to take students money but does not execute well so they can see their monies worth.
