<p>I've visited and taken the tour, but there are still some things I am unclear about. Can anyone answer these questions:</p>
<p>Do people actually date?
Or are they too wrapped up in ECs and careers and grades to bother?
How are the girls there? Are they cute?
Do people support the sports teams, or does nobody care? School spirit?
What do people do for fun?
Is Wesleyan a party school?
Do different people mix, or do people hang out in cliques?
Is it necessary to have a car?</p>
<p>I guess my main concern is the type of people there. I have heard that Wesleyan is very open and liberal, but I have some doubts... a lot of people in my school say they are really openminded, but only if you fit their preconceived notions of you, and that just sucks. I'm thinking of applying ED to Wesleyan over schools like Amherst, Bowdoin, Colby, etc. because of Wesleyan's rep of being very accepting, diverse, and friendly as opposed to the preppy, snobbish "get-aheadness" I found in lots of other schools. </p>
<p>But I've started having some misgivings after some friends told me that Wesleyan was NOT open, but actually really closeminded. They said that almost everyone there is a GSA member, or a tree hugging pot smoking hippie, and all the girls are uptight feminists(no I'm not a misogynist or a homophobe and I do care about the environment), and that if you differ from the traditional left wing, liberal view, you're shunned and excluded. I know that my friends are probably completely wrong, but still... I picked Wesleyan over a lot of other schools BECAUSE of the fact it was so open and accepting; it'd suck if it turned out it wasn't.</p>
