Wesleyan campus is spread over several streets in Middletown, so much that the roads are public. Many buildings are quaint and historic.

Beautiful campus to walk around. Ate lunch at the Student Center, it was pretty good. As we were on campus in July, it was very quiet and there were very few students.

I am so happy my daughter is able to attend this university. The students, faculty and staff are top-notch and I enjoyed interacting with everyone I met. I attended a dance performance and spoke with some very intelligent students who will no doubt be making changes in our world.

The Center for The Humanities put on a great conference: fora papers, informal panel discussion, and friendly receptions.

The Wesleyan Campus is nice because it has historic buildings and is green and lush, but besides that I don't think it is anything special. I also don't like how it is completely opened to the town of Middletown. I guess it is worth a look while in Connecticut, but I've seen better campuses.

Wesleyan has a lot to offer the surrounding community. Take a look at their site for current activities. While there enjoy a walk around Middletown and have lunch at one of the restaurants.
