Degree: American Government and Politics (United States)
Graduation Year: 2012

It was a great place to explore the subjects I was passionate about, even outside my main course of study.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2009

Wesleyan was (and continues to be) a thoughtful community full of intellectually-driven students, faculty and staff. Big enough that you continue to meet new people regularly, but small enough that you are able to keep in touch with the people that you know, Wesleyan was the perfect size to allow for smaller classes, all of overachievers (myself included) who care about enacting change. Very proud to be a Wesleyan alum - which is not to say that the university is perfect, or always makes the right decisions - but very proud to be part of a community that thinks hard and engages with the world.

Degree: American Government and Politics (United States)
Graduation Year: 2011

Wesleyan is an amazing experience both academically and socially. The largely open curriculum allowed me to take courses in computer programming, data science, produce, shoot, and edit my own documentary film, and study the classics while completing interesting and varied coursework for my major. The social scene is even more varied and your classmate's interests know no bounds. I personally found my niche in club sports and comedy but I also remained close with many people I just met in passing. The one issue that may well be resolved now is that the career services office leaves much to be desired if you don't want to go into consulting, public service, or grad school. I was definitely not expecting them to find me a job but even as an alum trying to post job openings, the office is still not that great. But do not let that deter you. All of my friends from across majors have fulfilling jobs and lives and that is all thanks to the Wesleyan education.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2010

Wesleyan allows students to gain independence and responsibility in their academic and professional development. Students are held to a high standard, while being allowed to explore and develop their passions and interests. The student body is highly active making it a campus filled with activities. It is an especially supportive place for the arts, with student run organizations putting on performances almost every week.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2014

Wesleyan is unique and a great place to study science, but it can start to feel small after a while.

Degree: Cultural Studies/Critical Theory and Analysis
Graduation Year: 2003

I had an amazing and unique experience at Wesleyan where I was given the opportunity to learn by doing rather than just learning from textbooks. I was encouraged to follow my interests and passion throughout my education at Wesleyan, and I had many experiences that I never would've dreamed possible. I was able to spend three summers and an entire academic year in Japan, including the experience of living with multiple host families in a various cities around the country. However, although I loved my experience and wouldn't change a thing about my East Asian Studies major, I wish I had spend more time thinking about my long-term career path. If I could go back, I would double major in English or a more mainstream major in order to open up more job opportunities. Financially Wesleyan was a great choice for me, as I qualified for over $120,000 in grants & scholarships, making Wesleyan the least expensive choice for me even when compared to the public schools where I was accepted (UCSC, UCSB, UW).
