When The Princeton Review interviewed Wesleyan students, this is what they had to say:
“What ties our students together is academics, sisterhood, and honor code.”
“The sisterhood program is an amazing tool that helps those who need a support system. By being assigned a big sister, we have an easier way of adjusting and meeting new people.”
“There are sisterhood pep rallies every two months, which unite the school as a whole.”
“I’ve had an amazing four years here and I don’t want to leave.”
