"Toward the end of my junior year, my parents planned a college road trip and we visited eight prestigious colleges. In the span of five days we traveled over 3,000 miles. Most of the visits were to colleges that I had identified as great schools. To my surprise Wesleyan was the college I fell in love with and now call home. Wesleyan College has changed my life by paving a great future for me."
