What is your overall opinion of this school?

At first glance, it seems like a great school, but once you go here you can see that there are some things that can be improved. In my experience, having an advisor is not helpful at all, my previous advisor knew nothing about me, and coming back for this semester I found out through a different professor that my advisor had left the school and I had no idea who my new advisor was. There can be better communication between advisors and advisees. There is not much to do here on the weekends either, the campus is a ghost town and with that being said, there is barely any good food served during the weekend, most of the food station at the dining hall is closed, leaving very little options. The Business Department is quite small, but it is fairly new. Overall the classes are good, very stimulating and the professors are great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first stepped foot on Wheaton's campus, I was a little worried. I can certainly lend some credit to the normal anxieties that come with a transition as large as moving two and a half hours away from my family, friends, and everything else I had known up until that time. But a lot of my fear was about what I might be about to experience. I had only heard good things about Wheaton, but I considered the school a safety. I never thought I would actually find myself enrolled there. I was concerned about how I would fit in, the area, the quality of the education that I would be getting, and more. Now, a year after that day, I can happily say that I have never been more involved in a community in my entire life- and that's including the years I spent in the Girl Scouts doing community service and filling the hearts and stomachs of my small town. I can say with certainty that Wheaton is committed to having a place for everyone on its campus. The school is incredibly welcoming, incredibly diverse, and incredibly educated. It celebrates everyone and embraces not only each and every unique talent and story that is brought to it through its students, but the community that is created when all of those elements come together. I'm proud to be a part of Wheaton.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wheaton is the college for the undecided and unsure, who despite their wariness in choice are bursting with potential. It is a small college, located in a small town, so most students spend the majority of their time on campus. However it makes for such a personal environment, people become close quickly. It is one of the most accepting communities that exists in the world of colleges, nobody is discriminated against. Wheaton students do not see color, gender, or age. They see people and the beauty that exists within each person studying at Wheaton. As for academics, the professors are all highly qualified individuals who genuinely care for their students. They are passionate for the subjects they teach and often have worked in their field for years and produced a number of works surrounding it. The Wheaton education is flexible, promoting a liberal arts structure. Students are not required to declare their majors until the end of their sophomore year, providing plenty of time to experiment and be certain in choice. As for extracurriculars, many exist. Every interest under the sun has a a club to go with it and if you happen to find one missing, you are free to create it yourself. Club sports are also abundant for those who like to be active but may not have the best arm. No Greek life exists at Wheaton, instead theme house, where anyone with a common interest can live together in said designated house. Wheaton is also doing a remarkable job in regards to sustainability. All food leftover in the dining hall goes to the nearby pig farm for the trough, all napkins are biodegradable, and recycling bins exist everywhere on campus. There aren’t many amazing aspects of Wheaton that cannot possibly fit into this review, it is genuinely an under appreciated diamond in the rough. Wheaton exists to serve its students well, and in turn the students do the same, making Wheaton one of my most favorite places to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I felt at home the minute I walked onto campus. The atmosphere, people, and groups allow the academics to be an enjoyable part of the overall college experience, which was really important to me when applying. I've only been at Wheaton for one year but I am already excited to go back to campus and start another year much more acclimated to the scene.

It took some time to grow on me but I love the small community. It is a safe space surrounded by nature and is filled with friendly faces: students and professors.

Overall, I love Wheaton College. The majority of students, faculty and staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Of the professors that I've had, all of them have been extremely knowledgeable and had a real passion for teaching. The fact that they love their job makes learning in their classrooms that much more enjoyable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wheaton College MA has been a wonderful place to attend so far. They have made attending financially possible as well as showing the education and opportunities are both significant and abundant. It may be in a sleepy town and the LAC style may not be for everyone but it is an amazing school regardless. A hidden gem I believe

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I am very pleased with Wheaton College as an academic institution and have loved the classes that I've taken. The close enough vicinity to Providence and Boston has allowed me to explore the two cities on occasion; both are accessible through reliable, but time consuming, public transportation.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wheaton is extremely supportive academically and fun-wise is what you make it. So to speak if i'm away from Wheaton one weekend I'm not worried about missing a banger. And sometimes Saturdays consist of nothing more than you make playing some drinking games with your friends, if thats your thing. There are themed houses that throw down but no sorority life. Its not very diverse however students of color really stick together on campus and provide a lot of moral support in this predominantly white school. And the white students really make an effort to understand POC experiences its a very liberal atmosphere where everytime a hot topic pops up people can conversate about it rather than one person try to educate the rest. As for the faculty well it matches the lack of diversity in the students some are better than others and your opinion usually depends upon whether you find them problematic or not. Wheaton generally hires pretty able professors. Financially Wheaton isn't that affordable, but the name carries some weight so you sort of get what you pay for. And also student financial services IS NOT HELPFUL one time I had $0.05 left on my account and they continuously billed me for the entire semester $50 per month. But hey you live you learn nonetheless check your bill. ALSO the water is brown and I'm not talking tinge of yellow I'm talking ice tea, coffee brewed brown. The safety of it is still under investigation by the students even though Wheaton says its safe its just hard to believe.
