It is an amazing inclusive school that gives endless opportunities. Classes are small and make sure you are able to learn so you can get the most out of your education. I originally left and did not believe it was worth it, but after looking at a few other top notch public schools I came right back because how supportive it is.
Wheelock is far from what I expected.
To start, the academics at this school are simply meteocer. I transferred out of two classes within the first two days of the fall term because I felt that both professors were truly UNABLE to teach...At times, Wheelock felt like a glorified community college. it felt like the marketing team was really the most prominent department in the school, wheelock is facing serious problems as an institution which is affected enrollment and applications. instead of solving these problems the school is hyping up their marketing. at times, wheelock felt more like a mid-sized corporation than an institution. in fact, 40% of the time it felt like a glorified community college, 40% of the time it felt like a corporate entity desperately struggling to make it, and 20% it felt like an insitution of higher learning.
While intellectual and engaged students can be found, if you are looking to be in a college that feels like an intellectual community, Wheelock will disappoint. Many, (NOT ALL) of the female students seemed to view certain issues in an ignorant or backwards manner, to the extent that their own views were detriment to their well being as females. The male community, albeit minuscule, was generally incredibly ignorant, sexist, and homophobic. We had a unit on feminism in my sophomore year social work class and not a single man exhibited even the slightest tolerance or respect for the topic of feminism. Everyday after class i would hear them huddle up, calling it "Gay" or calling the teacher a "fag", etc. they were angered that they were studying feminism. moreover, within the male community there seemed to be a palpably uninhibited culture of homophobia, at least within the circle i ran with. additionally, many of the females in my feminism class would complain about it as well, something that made minimal sense to me..seemed that their views really worked against their own interests. all in all i felt that many of the people at wheelock, specifically the male community, was IGNORANT. one more thing: a lot of the men at wheelock are recruited for the schools desperately waning sports program, and that is the ONLY reason they go. since wheelock is a specialized school, that means that you are around a whole hell of a lot of un-engaged people that have ABSOLUTELY NO interest in the majors the school offers, something not that fun to be around. i would say 7 out of 10 men i met didn't want to major in a major that wheelock offered and/or were planning on transferring.
the first year field placement will only feel applicable to you if you are an education major. as a JJYA major, i thought that the opportunities were diverse. but the field placements the first year are ONLY in schools, and you don't get another field placement util senior year. all in all i felt that the field opportunities at wheelock were grossly hyped up.
lastly the campus. i personally found that i didn't understand what i wanted from a college campus until i actually went to college. but, the campus was the second component, after the quality of the classes, that made wheelock feel more like a community college than a four year university. neatly placed beside what is basically a freeway, whelks campus was...well, just weird and unappealing, far from what one would typically desire. moreover, it was small and just odd and generally added to the feeling that wheelock was an overpriced community college.
the ONLY thing that I will miss about wheelock is that, for a private college, they do a pretty darn good job of having racial diversity. but while important, i didn't feel this made up for the other realities that school faced and i wound up transferring anyways.
lastly, when i came i was worried that the school was boring. i heard that the party scene was non-existent, etc. this isn't true. most of the people at wheelock like to have a good time, but the school just doesn't facilitate parties. therefore you just go off campus.
all in all I'm leaving, primarily because i found a school that has a better major for my professional goals. yet, i won't miss the widespread ignorance of the student body, shaky administration, and general averageness of the academics.
I would definitely recommend to anyone interested in public sector fields such as- education, social work, non-profit leadership, and humanities. Our political science department is also growing and attracting more students thanks to Professors Geoff McCormack and Sandy McEvoy. But of course, like anywhere else, Wheelock has its pros and cons. It's just up to you to become involved and find your niche of friends/interest groups so that you can get the real true beauty that comes with going to school in the heart of Fenway Park in Boston.
I am currently a student at Wheelock college. It is a great school. The campus is small and safe. The professors and faculty are amazing. I would recommend this school to any student looking to major in education, social justice, or child life. Wheelock college is a great Boston school.

Allow your passion and your goals to be your motivator. At times college can be overwhelming, and what you give is what you will get. Nothing in life comes easy, you must work hard for it. You cannot afford to be like everybody else, have to work twice as hard. Allow your passion to be drive.
This school is a great place for students who want to become teachers, but there is little else available for other career choices.
The work load and stress that came with college and how to handle it.
People who are passionate about making a positive impact in the world.
FIeld experience beginning in the first year of schooling.
My classmates are very passionate about their future feilds of work.
Working with students to improve the life of children and family.
The population is mostly girls resulting in very clique-y behavior.
The best thing about Wheelock is the fact that you get the best of both worlds. The comfortableness of a small school in a big city. The school is only about a block long - with the acceptance of a few other campus buildings - yet it is in the middle of an amazing city. There is no better way to go to college in the city in my opinion.
The most frustrating thing about my school is how it is a school where people are supposed to be open and accepting, but often times people can be very close-minded. Because it is such a small school, everyone knows everyone, and they can be very judgmental. Older students are not always very supportive of younger students, and people can be quick to stereotype. I was not expecting that, and it’s frustrating that my expectations about the school are not reality.
Someone who doens't know what they want to do with their life.
