I love the environment and I can not wait to get involved in everything possible.
Wheaton is your average small town liberal arts college with small class sizes, beautiful buildings, knowledgeable professors, and friendly students. For the most part, the students are well-rounded, partaking in various activities from academics to music and art to sports and community service. Although there are "a few bad eggs" on campus, the majority of students are honest and helpful. The campus tends to be fairly liberal, but for the most part other viewpoints are respected. There is a small party seen on weekends, but few go out of their way to drink or do drugs on weeknights. The faculty and staff are personable, while the president and his wife are often seen around campus both at the many events put on by the college and on their daily strolls through the green on warm afternoon.
I went to Wheaton College for a visit and I was very angry. We went to cafeteria to get lunch, and I have serious celiacs desies. When I asked for a gluten free bun I asked if the complimentary fries were also gluten free-they replied that they were only patatoe fries no bread. I tried to re explain and say that if anything is fried in the same oil I can't eat it, because of my severe allergy. Turns out the fries are not gluten free. The woman behind the counter gave me a shocked look and told the man cooking to change his gloves. The fact that they wouldn't do That anyway if I asked for an allergen free meal hives me such anxiety, because I am lucky in the gluten free world, I only vomit when I eat, but others can die on spot because of gluten. If one time I forget to mention my allergy I worry that I could get physically sick. Anyway they make me my gluten free burgur and guess what came with it, the non-gluten free fries. All together I don't really feel like I can eat at the college because of the lack of listening to my allergies.
Wheaton is the place to be if you want to get away from the city or a large town. Being located in the middle of nowhere means there are not many things to do but you will find what you enjoy. Another benefit of being in the middle of nowhere and being a part of a small community is that you can build relationships with many people or created powerful bonds with some. The community and small size is probably the most appealing aspect about Wheaton. This will not be the place for you if you always want to be partaking in large events or parties.
Another huge plus is the faculty at the school. I find that the Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science departments have the best faculty. These departments create powerful relationships with each other and more importantly the students. There are many people that feel this way at the school who aren’t majoring in one of those fields such as me. The other departments, from my experience, stay to themselves but are also nice.
Overall, I think that Wheaton College is a great school but for the right people. If you are looking for a small liberal arts school where you will feel a part of a community and are willing to sacrifice being close to any stores then this looks like the place for you. You will get a great education from amazing professors that genuinely care for your education and would be willing to help you with any challenge you bring them. I was able to get professors that I had for a semester to write me recommendation letters to prestigious organizations and be accepted. This goes to show the effort they put into you.

Who are you now? Who will you be several years from now? For a prospective student, the answers to either of these two questions may not be easy to answer, or even possible to answer. Despite the fact that determining academic or career paths isn't a task that can be accomplished in a quick meeting, it is important when looking at a school to remember that the place you choose to attend can have a great impact on the answers to both questions by the time you graduate. You of course will have great influence on what you choose to do while you are a student, but the environment of any college will in turn influence these very decisions.
You definitley can't just cruise or squeak by, but I've had a few nights where I really didn't have much work to do. Probably not the same at an Ivy League college.
Their interests are diverse , but they are all interesting and friendly people.
The predominant stereotypes about the school and its students describe the school as a haven for white, upper-class, Birkenstock-wearing, liberals. This stereotype is generally untrue from what I have seen. The fact that tuition at the college is expensive does unfortunately make it more accessible to students from financially secure backgrounds, this however is true for almost every private school in the country. In actuality, the school prides itself on its diversity and the numerous backgrounds of its students supports this claim. It is true, however, that the campus as a whole learns toward the far left, and you would be hard presses to find much diversity regarding political views.
I think that's a high percentage of people, but certainly not everyone.
Even though many choose to party off campus there is still always an event going on, on campus. The Art House puts on gallery shows in its living room, a concert may be going on either in the student run coffee house or the late night venue called the Loft. There are also visiting artists, professors, lectures, and musicians that come.
Wheaton is a beautiful campus on the smaller side which is nice because it does not feel overwhelming. I would, however, change its location. Although it is situated between Boston and Providence (two great cities to visit), the town of Norton has nothing to offer but a CVS. Many students are pushing to make Wheaton more sustainable, but there seems to be some residence from the administration. It is great to see the response from the students who believe in it, however. One of the most frequent complaints is the drug and alcohol policy. The policy is exceedingly strict causing many students to party off campus. This causes the campus to seem empty sometimes on the weekends. I believe that Wheaton's strongest aspect are there academics.
It has small class sizes and it isn't in the city.
I'm not crazy about the town it's in. Even though I adore Wheaton and would never want to go anywhere else, Norton is pretty boring. At least it's very easy to get to Boston or Providence!
The Wheaton community provides an atmostphere in which extra-curricular activities are valued almost as highly as school work. This allows students to participate in various clubs, sports, internships, and jobs without feeling as though they are being weighted down by too many commitments.
The type of student who should attend this college is one who values a small community and college that offers a small student to faculty ratio.
Wheaton is a place to grow, a place to learn and a place to achieve what you want.
I wish I'd had the maturity to see and value my education. I wish I had had a clearer sense of who I was and what direction I wanted to go in. This was the first time I was ever away from home, and I wish that I had taken college a lot more seriously than I did.
Someone who doesn't care about education and wants college strictly as a social experience. Someone looking for greek life, or a tremendous amount of huge parties. Someone who needs to go to school right in the middle of a city or large town with no commute time, or someone who doesn't want to be recognized by almost every student and professor.
It used to an all female college which went coed in 1988.
I talk about the close relationships that I have with friends and faculty at Wheaton and my awesome job as a Bookings Manager for the student run coffee shop, The Lyons Den.
Because class sizes are small and professors cap the classes at a certain number of students you often have to try multiple times to get into a class.
