West Virginia Wesleyan College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
I enjoyed my experience there and would recommend the College to any other student looking to pursue a degree in a science based field. Wesleyan is a quality academic institution with professors that are very knowledgeable in their subject and many have been published numerous times. The professors are all willing to work with you in order to allow you to succeed in their classes whether that includes extra study sessions, giving you more time to take an exam, or pairing you with an individual in the class that is understanding the material. The downfall to the campus is that some of the higher officials are not as concerned about the students as they are the finances. Recently there were significant lay-offs that could impact the quality of education the institution provides. The exercise science and athletic training facilities are somewhat lacking in some areas as the equipment we have for our labs can be outdated or non-functional at times. This comes back to the financial status of the college as well. Overall, I would recommend any student interested in a degree in a science field to consider attending West Virginia Wesleyan College as it is a superb educational institution.
West Virginia Wesleyan College has an impressive selection of a wide variety of majors and minors, and I am blessed to have the opportunity to study exactly what I want. I am a 5th year senior completing a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Science and a minor in Athletic Training. These two majors are one of the fastest growing majors and areas of interest at WVWC, and I'm sure all around the United States. The greatest part of WVWC is the faculty and their involvement in the success of your academic career. I have taken advantage of late night office hours, outside meetings, one-on-one study sessions, and much more; it is all possible with the dedicated and caring professors. Other colleges and universities have hundreds of students in each class, but the size of classes at WVWC are a perfect fit for someone who is ready to be actively engaged and to honestly connect with the teacher. I could not ask for a better group of people to help shape me into a Bachelor of Science student and eventually into a Graduate Student. I am planning on pursuing a Graduate degree in either Physical Therapy or go on to be a Physician's Assistant. With all of the degrees and education under the School of Exercise Science's belt, nothing is impossible. It is inspirational to see how far they have come and are still going, and know that I, too, can be as successful as them one day. WVWC may be small and secluded, but not only is it a tight knit community, it is also a family. Faculty and staff have helped me, and no doubt have helped others, get through tough times, sick days, testing weeks, and plain old stress smoothly and without fail. I would not trade my professors for anyone in the world, and I owe all my success thus far to them.
This school offers one of the most rigorous programs for studying biology in the state of West Virginia. The courses offered will be beneficial towards anyone trying to become a doctor. PROS: The courses offered allow the students to know a lot of the curriculum they will be learning in the first year of medical school. Also, ~100% of students who graduate with a biology degree from here get accepted to, at least, one medical school. CONS: The price of tuition is very expensive, and the school does not help give the students more money each year, though the price for tuition goes up around $2,000 every year. Without outside scholarships, I would not suggest trying to pay for the tuition by yourself. Overall I would recommend anyone who is aspiring to become a doctor to attend West Virginia Wesleyan College. There is a large diversity in students and activities to keep most people busy and help them get on their own two feet.
