About Wesleyan University, Middletown

Wesleyan University (/ˈwɛzliᵻn/ WEZ-lee-in or /ˈwɛsliᵻn/ WES-lee-in) is a leading private liberal arts college in Middletown, Connecticut, founded in 1831. Wesleyan is a Baccalaureate College that emphasizes undergraduate instruction in the arts and sciences, grants research master's degrees in many academic disciplines, and grants PhD degrees in biology, chemistry, mathematics and computer science, molecular biology and biochemistry, music, and physics. Founded under the auspices of the Methodist Episcopal Church and with the support of prominent residents of Middletown, the now secular university was the first institution of higher education to be named after John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. About 20 unrelated colleges and universities were subsequently named after Wesley. Wesleyan, along with Amherst College and Williams College, is a member of the Little Three colleges, an unofficial athletic conference of liberal arts colleges, and is considered a "Little Ivy".

  • Great Place to attend lectures. Wonderful friendly students. I love their school spirit. It's much friendlier than Yale or Quinnipiac. Some day I'll visit the Buddhist Temple.

  • Pretty good but also commercializes student activism while perpetuating systems of violence and oppression

  • SOO much better than Quinnipiac

  • Wesleyan University is a much better school than Quinnipiac University. National Origin, Race, and Creed is a top priority at Wesleyan University. QU hates Indians.

  • Most fun you can have with your mind turned on.
