As a former student of Wesley College (graduate of 2016) Be very careful attending this school. If you ever need to transfer be prepared, your credits won't! Some professors can be inspiring and other's make you feel like it's another day at the office. Some professors are there to collect a paycheck. The school overall is ok if you want a small school, but if you plan on graduating in 4 years FASFA says only 26%. Retaining students is only around 28%. My degree program forced me into another year (more courses) without consent which meant more money!

Here at Wesley College I am provided with a friendly and home like environment. I chose Wesley because of how small the school this way you get a chance to meet everyone at least once. There are no unfamiliar faces and College never seemed as scary as everyone made it. I like the fact that Wesley gives each student a chance to have their own identity. This is a school for students who want to improve themselves socially before stepping foot into this big world. I would like to see a bigger improvement in diversity here at Wesley. Students have to learn that they will not always be surrounded by people they are familiar with, a big part of life in networking. Getting to know different people who can help you be a better you.
I love Wesley College. I do wish that they had more financial options available for students who do not have their parents help. That is the main reason I am applying for so many scholarships. Academically, Wesley is amazing and they have a wonderful Nursing program which definitely challenges each individual and makes sure that you are prepared for NCLEX. I do recommend Wesley College, I just wish there were more financial options available.
