I wish that I had known that Wheaton had so many rules. I knew what the community covenant - kind of like an honor code students all sign - rules were, but there are fines for everything here! Climbing on buildings, excess noise, borrowing laundry baskets, exceeding the maximum number of people on the elevators, etc. I've learned to live with it, and figure out how to bend the really silly ones, but sometimes I feel like I am treated like a child and not an adult student. I really wish I had known how frustrating it would be sometimes.
I wish I had known how loving and accepting this community was before deciding to come to Wheaton. It would have saved me a lot of time struggling with the decision of choosing a school if I could have seen how blissfully happy I would be at Wheaton.
That your major does not matter at all when it comes to finding a job, and neither does your GPA. That is only for going on to education beyond College.
I wish that I had been prepared for the heavy workload that the school expects.
How difficult it was going to be. I didn't know that it would be so hard to balance school, my social life, and my spiritual life.
How to time manage and study better.
It wouldn't be worth all the money it costs.
That I would have a difficult time academically and struggle to get that diploma. That I'd have to say "no" to social activities with friends the majority of the time.
That my beliefs would be challenged.
Nothing in particular.

I wish I had known more about the school administration. They are entirely out of touch with true student needs (despite their incessant meager attempts to help in what they believe is best) and do not understand what it means to live fully as a human being. They are far too conservative, close-minded, and strict - demanding zombie-like submission to their narrow rules.
