Assistant Professor of Art

After attending a huge school and now teaching at a small liberal arts college, I am a believer. Our students get an incredibly individualized education in a way I never knew was possible. I love that, at Wesleyan, it doesn't matter what background you are coming from, you can leave here and absolutely succeed.

It's More Than Just A Major

When The Princeton Review interviewed Wesleyan students, this is what they had to say:

“This diverse college is full of brilliant women devoted to sisterhood and tradition but manages to balance modern ideas and practices.”

“Professors are definitely the best part of Wesleyan. They are totally dedicated and engaging.”

“Professors encourage critical thinking and looking at things from different perspectives.”

“The professors here actually care about you, so don’t be surprised when you receive an email asking why you were not in class the previous day!”

“Classes are challenging but the academic experience is worth the cost of tuition.”

“The atmosphere is very uplifting and supportive. There is no failing unless you absolutely, positively strive to fail.”

Educational Environment of Wesleyan

“The educational environment at Wesleyan gave me the freedom of thought and the knowledge base to tackle all the basic science courses in my first year of medical school (Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College), as well as the case discussions during my second year. Histology was so much easier after taking Dr. Boettger-Tong’s class. This list could continue on and on.”
