I return to Wesleyan yearly or more often. It is not a tourist destination. I return so often because of the people who work, teach, and study here. If you are a prospective student, do not just drive around the campus area. The drive is...More

Nice historic buildings that have been well maintained. I wish I could have gone to this college when I was in college. All of the professors all seem so nice.

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...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...More
