    As any private school, Wesleyan is a little more costly than state schools, but definitely worth it for a quality, one-on-one education. Plus room and board is cheaper than the University of Nebraska- Lincoln!

    The financial aid is the only reason I can afford this school is the Financial Aid Office, they have been a lifesaver. Many students here are for the theatre department, and the theatre department IS incredible, but with $30,000+/year, I'm not sure how they'll feel about paying their debt 5 years from now.

    OK... its expensive. But they have adopted a guaranteed graduation in 4 years policy. So if you consider how many people end up going longer than that it works out. Also, as I mentioned there are lots of scholarship opportunities.

    In the Cochrane-Woods Library, Wesleyan has it's own little diamond in the rough. The Cooper Center. If you have a huge essay coming up and you want tips about how to write a thesis, cite your sources, write in a style that you're not familiar with, or maybe just want some feedback, you can set up an appointment and get some fantastic input that will help you along the way to write a dynamite paper.
