West Virginia Wesleyan College Reviews
I love Wesleyan! The town of Buckhannon is very small but it is beautiful! There are great restaurants and everything is within walking distance. Although it isn't known for a great social life. There are always things to do, campus hold events every weekend and there are always sporting events. The dorms are nice and clean, but they are still dorms. Overall I would recommend Wesleyan to anyone!
This will be my second year attending WVWC and I can't help but brag on my experience here! Ever since my first visit I knew this was my home among the hills. Everyone is so excepting and very helpful here on campus. They never fail to make someone feel at home and is it as if we are all one big family. The professors are unbelievable, academics are some of the best in the state, athletics you can't even get me started on, and the safety is just indescribable! I've never once doubted this college!
My experience at Wesleyan has been an incredible one. Everyone is extremely welcoming and friendly. I love the student:teacher ratio because it provides students with an opportunity to develop relationships with their professors and receive help when needed. The one thing I would like to change is the course availability. I understand to keep the ratio, less students are registered to each course, but I would love to see the courses offered at more times each semester. If this were to happen, more than 20-25 students can fulfill this credit and it would be easy to fit courses into our schedules.
