Favorite thing about WVWC: Its beauty. The first time I set foot on Wesleyan's campus was a cold, rainy, gloomy night in the middle of winter. I remember saying to myself, "this place is gorgeous." The buildings' architecture, the chapel and now the addition of the fountain in the center of campus, WVWC's beauty is truly remarkable.

Any advice to prospective students:
Though it's a cheesy saying, it's true, "the early bird gets the worm." Don't wait to apply; apply early. Don't wait to complete your FAFSA; complete it as soon as you can. Don't wait to visit; visit soon. The sooner you get things done, the more opportunity that awaits you, the better chance you have for more financial assistance, the easier your decision making process will be. I can't say it enough, so, what are you waiting for?
