Maurice "Mo" answers the question "Why Wes?"
Why Wes: When making my college decisions, I knew I wanted four things: to be out of my home state (Michigan), near a major city, a competitive environment, and a caring environment. The first three criteria were not that difficult to find, but the latter proved otherwise. To me, Wes is the competitive, yet caring, environment that I was looking for; it also helps that New York City is a quick train ride away. I know that students, professors, and employers are always going to expect me to put forward my absolute best, but these same people will help me to become even better than I could have ever expected. At Wes, I know that if I ask anyone for help on a paper, or help studying, they will give me the best help that they can give. We are not perfect human beings, and some people are better at things than we are. Only at Wesleyan will people give me the sincere help that I need.
