Middletown is an OK area, but students never really feel the need to go very far off campus to find fun things to do.
College Junior 2013-11-16T21:13:57Z
Very easy to use the technology and help services are always available.
College Junior 2013-11-16T21:13:11Z
The people are great, that's why I chose the school. I was choosing between a few academically competitive schools, and the truth is that the students here are all very interested in their studies, so much that they don't worry about others and the atmosphere becomes less competitive and everybody is friendly with one another. It's an incredible school and I would definitely do it all over again.

Big town feeling, very accessible if you want. Many stores, safe, good connection with residents.
College Junior 2013-11-16T21:05:25Z
It's usually not that cold, very bearable. Spring and Fall are beautiful, school looks great with snow on the ground too.
College Junior 2013-11-16T21:00:06Z
Freshmen dorms are brand new, renovating the older buildings to make the insides like the newer buildings. Seniors get their own houses. Juniors get their own apartments. Housing at Wes is great.

Health & Safety:
Public Safety effectively takes care of every situation, definitely not over-bearing, and understanding. PSafe does a good job of ensuring the safety of students.

Wesleyan provides a shuttle, The Ride, for the entire campus. There are several vans to pick you up even at late hours of the night. It's pretty convenient, and public transportation is never really needed or used. Taxis are easy to get, just somewhat expensive, but on the holidays and breaks, Wesleyan offers bus rides and shuttles to the airport and major surrounding cities.

Main st. is just a 5 minute walk away and has lot of different options for different budgets. There's Thai food, Sushi (and some half price days), Vietnamese, Italian, upscale and regular Pizza, Mexican food and delicious ice-cream and frozen yogurt!
College Sophomore 2013-10-21T17:35:46Z
Always different type of things going on t suit whatever you're looking for. There is a shuttle that goes around campus that is great, especially in the cold weather.
College Sophomore 2013-08-20T18:54:19Z
There is a standard view on all of these that remains constant throughout the majority of the campus
College Senior 2013-08-17T20:33:00Z
Wes has a beautiful campus. It is a high powered institution with a relaxed atmosphere. There is not much campus-wide support for athletic events. However, there is always some art, music, or film event on campus to keep yourself busy on the weekends. There are tons of student organizations.
College Senior 2013-08-17T20:26:56Z
I am a double major at Wes. I have loved the challenging nature of the courses. The professors are thought provoking and have given me a solid foundation to be successful in my future career. I would hands down attend Wesleyan again. My future goal is to become a leader in the health care industry.

Middletown is not very exciting but when you're on campus that doesn't really matter. There is so much to do on campus that you sometimes forget that Middletown is a not a hype town.
But if you want to get away for the weekend there is a van that takes students to and from New Haven Thursday-Sunday. In New Haven there are many things to do. You can also take MetroNorth to NYC, which is only about 1.5 hours away.

The Wesleyan Career Center is very helpful when looking for an internship. They will sit with you and help you figure out, which internships are the best for you to apply to. They guide you through the application process which is very helpful.
College Junior 2013-08-11T15:29:49Z
I love my majors. All the professors are great! They are always happy to make time after class to meet up with you. Most are doing research in the topic they are teaching in class so you know they are more than apt to teach the course. If a professor cannot answer a question during class, they will go research the subject and give you the answer the next day. This just shows how my major professors go far and beyond what they are expected to do. The professor makes the classes so I love all of my classes.
College Junior 2013-08-11T15:24:35Z
I'm a neuroscience and biology major. They are a lot of work but totally worth it. I like the criteria for both because many of the required classes work for both majors and help me complete my pre-med requirements. The major advisors are very helpful.

I've always felt safe on Wesleyan's campus. There are mostly people around and it is well lit.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T22:04:25Z
There are some really great options for off campus, from diners to very nice (and $$) restaurants.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T22:02:18Z
This is a rigorous university with a highly educated faculty.
College Sophomore 2013-07-31T22:00:37Z
The graduate school has been nothing but pleasant to deal with. They answered all my questions and helped me as best they could.

Connecticut weather is a fickle mistress. One week you'll be enjoying beautiful early fall, light-jacket weather; the next, frigid, flash floods that render the path down Foss Hill or any fields extremely unpleasant (I highly recommend bringing boots). Winters can easily reach temperatures below 32°F one day and jump to 51°F on the next. The negatives of Wesleyan weather are easily negated by how well the weather supplements the campus' beauty, I personally find Wesleyan the most beautiful in the winter, taking a moment to view the campus in rain is also quite serene. When the weather's nice and sunny, Foss Hill sprouts a wide variety of students - you have the football/frisbee thrower, the smokers, the readers, the musicians, and the ray-catching bums. Often enough, these categories overlap; you'll find some of the best aspects of Wesleyan during these moments.

Health & Safety:
I've never felt unsafe at Wes. I just recommend using common sense because as much as it's a college campus, it's also the real world. If you're walking around at night at two in the morning, I'd recommend a buddy-system or staying in well-lit areas. You just have to be smart.
College Junior 2013-07-16T00:15:17Z
Getting into my majors were relatively easy, we have general education credits and once those are completed, you can apply to any major you like and you'll be accepted if you've fulfilled the general education credits.
College Junior 2013-07-16T00:13:08Z
I'm a Psychology and Spanish major at Wes and once you're admitted into the major, you're assigned an advisor who assists with any problems that you may have. It's a very helpful environment that Wes strives to create with their students. It's good to know that if you're ever falling, you have a faculty member to catch you and guide you.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
