I love the enthusiasm for learning among all the students at Wes. I transferred in from another college where the students were just as smart and worked just as hard, but were martyrs about it, going on about how many all nighters and cups of coffee and books to read and papers to write.

At Wes, I heard students excitedly talking about taking a seminar with Professor so-and-so who was just back from sabbatical, there was so much new to learn! and looking forward to the books they were going to read! and the thesis they were going to write! That was the learning environment that spoke to my soul.
