In regards to the student experience at Wesley, there is much left to be desired. The dining options on campus are very limited and the food is not the greatest. A recreational facility does not exist. Most recreational programs operate out of the main basketball gymnasium, or at an auxiliary gymnasium off campus. Both facilities share time with recreation programs and intercollegiate athletics, with athletics assuming the majority of space allocation.
Central campus did undergo a significant face-lift a few years ago by eliminating the two streets that used to separate the college center. This area has become a high foot traffic area used mainly by students and provides opportunities to engage with other students and seating/picnic areas to eat lunch or study.
The location of the college is a significant factor. You are not far from major metropolitan areas such as Baltimore, Washington D.C., or Philadelphia. In addition the Delaware beaches are only a short drive away.
Ultimately, the college experience is what you make of it. If you surround yourself with quality friends, positive role models, and take advantage of the resources that are available you can succeed regardless of your location.

Make no mistake, the program is extremely rigorous, but fortunately the faculty and staff at Wesley show they are invested in every student's success.
