No matter what the admissions counselor will make you feel at home and comfortable! No matter how nervous I was she always reassured me that it was okay and she was extremely patient with me. Walking on campus, each student you run into will make you feel welcome and apart of the family. If you have any questions students on campus has no problem lending a helping hand or just being there to lead the way until you feel completely comfortable on your own. I loved being on campus and honestly its the only school my parents felt comfortable with. They get right to the point and no matter what will let you be you and take accept you for you no matter what color, race, or gender identity you can be you!

I have not attended the school yet but the process has been very easy and the staff very helpful. I really enjoyed my visit to the school! However, I am considering not attending now that Delaware State University might take over the school. I'm asking everyone to write to these places to voice your opposition:

I love Welsey College. I am currently a student there majoring in nursing. I love how small the classes are. You are recognized as a student and not a number. All the professors know your name. All of the faculty at Wesley College wants to see you succeed! That's what I like most about Wesley. All faculty know you personally and I have no problem talking to someone about my issues no matter what it may be. They supply you with the right resources as well to help you well after you graduate. They set you up for life past college.
