Wesleyan is a great school and I feel so lucky to go here! The students are all so incredibly nice, and it's great being able to know everyone on campus. The teachers are genuine and care about every student, and there are hardly classes with more than 30 people. It's true that you have to make the most of it, which is the case with any small school, but the environment overall is welcoming and friendly.
Review West Virginia Wesleyan College
I first visited West Virginia Wesleyan College through the Governor's School for the Art's and I fell in love with the campus. The campus is beautiful and the professors are always willing to help out. I was able to begin creating a new organization through the college thanks to two faculty members who were willing to become my advisors and help me get started. I am also apart of the marching and concert bands on campus and the members of each have very different interests. About 75% of the concert band is not a music major, which shows that there are a large number of people who love other things besides just music. Not to mention that nearly everyone on campus is very friendly along with being in a small town.
Our school really really really struggles in football and that brings down the entire mood of campus. Football season is a ghost town and everyone leaves for the weekends because they go to other colleges and watch games because ours are not worth watching. Our Women's soccer team and Women's and Men's track are very strong, but other than that, our athletics are average. We definitely need more school spirit and better team performance because many students are coming for sports and then transferring because the teams are so bad. Sports could help draw students in, but instead it is pushing them away. Many of our students are on athletic teams, but the amount of students transferring in and out is outrageous. Athletics is all there is in Buckhannon, so if we don't have that, then people will leave.
