A really odd place with really odd people they inhabit the streets of middletown at night. I taught college for many years at highly competitive places.

Greatly over-rated institution. It contributes little to the community in which it is located. The student body tends to come from highly troubled families.

Wesleyan University is a 4-year liberal arts school located in Middletown, CT. It is 20 minutes from Hartford, 40 minutes from New Haven, and 2 hours from both New York and Boston. It's campus is nice. Very quiet. Good for high-schoolers looking at potential schools.

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.
