Beautiful campus

If only I were thirty years younger with the knowledge I have now. I'd love to attend this school. Too bad for me.

This is a fantastic, historic university with a great student population, located in a hip, progressive college town. If passing through Connecticut, consider a stop in Middletown and take a look at Wesleyan. I've known several people, including myself, who have asked, "Why didn't I go here?" It's an awesome school. Great university choice for open-minded, intelligent, curious, adventurous, creative... More

This was day 9 of the 10 day tour - we had already been to Colgate, Williams, Middlebury and Amherst. Boredom was setting in. The tour guide was crazy great and elevated our experience to such a degree that my son is thinking Early Decision. She was realistic with her experience in addition to the scripted role. We have been... More

I've been to the pool at Wesleyan so many times I've lost count. Each time, I keep thinking maybe it will be better this time. Seating, air quality and concessions just are generally terrible. This time it actually was a bit better. They turned on the a/c in the pool area on a weekend with 90+ temps for a 4... More

If I had known before that it was to be reviewed, I would have contributed my two-cents worth much before! Why do I rate it so highly? Because of the outstanding role the arts play on campus: we have had subscriptions to performances for many years now and we never tire of attending. There are also many free performances on...

This outstanding liberal arts college has some interesting architecture, but more importantly, a stroll through the campus can give one a feeling of the uniqueness of this American institution that is probably without parallels in the world.

We visited here as my son is interested in applying. We booked an information session, unfortunately we were not able to take a tour guided by a student (our fault not the university) but we did get helpful advice and a map for a self guided tour. The information session was run by an enthusiastic admissions counselor and was really... More

My daughter and I went on a tour of Wesleyan University. Unfortunately, it was a rainy winter day and that probably influenced our experience. The campus has an interesting mix of modern and older buildings. Our tour started at the Admissions area and auditorium and went in a large circle around campus, stopping at the library, residence halls and gym.... More

A really odd place with really odd people they inhabit the streets of middletown at night. I taught college for many years at highly competitive places. Something about this school really gives me the creeps. I just don't get that up standing leader in america feeling. Very odd given that it is a highly competitive place with a national reputation.... More
