     Wesleyan College

    • 11:1 student to faculty ratio: This means that your average class size at Wesleyan College is 11 students and a lot of the time, even fewer than that. It means one-on-one time with your professor, individualized attention and help from your professor, and meaningful, engaged classroom discussions. And all classes are taught by facult
    • 95% of 2014 undergraduates accepted into their first choice graduate school: 95%! Once you declare a major, you will work with the same advisor throughout your time here. There is no getting to your last semester and going through your degree audit only to find out you are missing one general education class that will keep you from graduating. There is no being turned away from a graduate program because you didn't take the appropriate prerequisites.
    • Study Abroad and International Recognition: Wesleyan offers students the opportunity to study abroad in more than 40 countries and maintains exchange agreements with universities in Korea, Japan, Russia, Ireland and China. In addition, Wesleyan faculty lead special study groups to various countries including Italy, Guatemala and Great Britain. Wesleyan women come from all across the US and more than 20 countries to experience a truly global education. Our Model UN team just won a national competition in Washington, DC! Plus, our new Global Scholars program is proving to be successful in attracting the best and brightest students to Macon, GA!
    • Student Life & Sisterhood: Wesleyan's vibrant 200-acre wooded campus has been host to all kinds of events ranging from the Cherry Blossom Festival finale to WESFest - a music festival sponsored by Student Affairs and held on our quad. We have 5 NCAA Division III sports teams and an IHSA Equestrian team. Our stables currently house about a dozen horses. You can bring your own horse, take riding lessons, or hold a work study job there! And . . . we have more than 20 clubs and organizations that are designed to enhance your college experience. If you don't find a club or organization that suits you, start your own!
    • Internships and Post-graduate Opportunities: Wesleyan College has established relationships with more than 70 organizations that provide internships. Our alumnae are also an excellent resource for students needing internships. Once you become a member of the Wesleyan family, you instantly gain hundreds of connections that could land you a job in places like DC, California or Alaska. With a little "networking help," our students have landed internships at NASA, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Merrill Lynch and the CDC, just to name a few. Get connected now!

Changes to the Common Application

Uncategorized

Starting in August of this year,  the Common Application will be instituting several noteworthy changes. Since there are currently 488 Common App member schools (and that figure will grow to 527 this fall), these changes will affect thousands of hopeful college applicants and the counselors and parents helping them through the application process.
Here’s a summary of the changes:

1) The new version will no longer include “topic of your choice” as an essay prompt and will instead require applicants to choose one of four or five essay topics.
2) For the first time, the 250- to (now) 650-word limit will be strictly enforced.
3) There will no longer be an activities essay, a 150-word paragraph that was previously required of all applicants.
4) There will be fewer questions per screen and students will not have to answer questions that don’t apply to them.
5) Progress checks will show students what parts of the application they have and have not completed.
6) Students will no longer be able to upload résumés, though Common App member schools will have the ability to make an alternative option available.
7) Students will now be able to indicate if they qualify for fee-waivers just once instead of asking about each school they’re applying to.
