What the students are saying about:

Wheaton College

Wheaton College

The Protestant Evangelical Church is part and parcel of the Wheaton College experience. Religion plays a large role in how the school interacts with its students, and it’s part of what attracts students to the college in the first place. As such “the rules at Wheaton are there to make the Wheaton community a safe place to learn and grow together.” “Wheaton is not a party school. Students sign the community covenant which stipulates that, as a school with underage students in it, no students will consume drugs or alcohol, even if they are of age.” Students report rules like this allow them to live a simpler life in the Wheaton suburb of Chicago. “Students are very community focused. Dorm rooms are left open, any lost items are often returned.” A final student sums up this safe atmosphere. “As far as life on campus goes, it's great. I never keep my door locked. Whenever I'm in my room, the door is open.”
