Wheelock is so centered on education and dedicated to improving the lives of children and families. This is something that I admired when I first looked at Wheelock, and something that I did not see at other colleges. As a future teacher, I was excited to get to Wheelock to experience all that they had to offer me related to the education field. Other colleges that are supposedly good "education" schools, did not seem to have the passion behind their program like Wheelock has behind theirs.
Wheelock is a very small college in the heart of Boston. Their class sizes are small allowing teachers to cater to their students needs. Wheelock also has very few lecture classes. Most of the classes are hands on and discussion base keeping the students very engaged in the matierail. Every student at Wheelock has the chance to go out in the community to practice what they learn in class, and by the end of your freshman year at Wheelock you already have 40 hours of internship in your feild.
I was capitivated by Wheelock's mission statement. I am very passionate about improving the lives of women and children in my society. I have always wanted to go into the counseling field. With Wheelock's hands approach to the field I am more experienced and more prepared to enter the field. Wheelock has several opportunities for students to take advantage of field placements and internships throughout all four years of school.
Wheelock is unique in a lot of ways. First of all, it is made up of 90% females, which makes it out to be pretty different from other schools. Another thing is the major that Wheelock offers. The school is mainly known as having education and social work majors, making the Wheelock a lot about service and giving, which all in itself is a unique focus for college students.
Wheelock College is a small community where you can find everything you are looking for just by asking. All the students are dedicated and friendly, and studying at a school where you call your professors by their first names really enables easy discussions and a relaxed learning environment
Wheelock College is a small college in the heart of the big city of Boston. It's like its own little world but then all of the excitement of the city is right outside your door. The small class sizes here allow for more one-on-one time with professors and makes learning here more personable.
WHEELOCK IS A SMALL SCHOOL, BUT IT'S IN THE MIDDLE OF A HUGE CITY; BOSTON, MA. THERE IS SO MUCH TO DO AROUND THE CITY FROM SHOPPING TO JUST HANGING OUT IN THE BOSTON COMMONS. WHEELOCK'S CLASSES ARE NICE AND SMALL SO YOU'RE ABLE TO ESTABLISH RELATIONSHIPS WITH YOUR PEERS AND PROFESSORS.
Well know in the community for producing teachers, child life specialists and other professionals who work with children. Focus is children and families unlike most other schools.
The small size. You really get to know everyone on campus, but can also explore Boston if you want more of a city experience.
It is very small with alot more one on one work with professors available.
