Wheelock College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


Before attending Wheelock college I wish I had a clearer understanding of the required courses. As I am entering the last year of my education I find myself having to overload on courses in order to graduate on time. As a transfer student I was already behind others and am now taking up to six courses a semester to catch up. If I had know about the large amount of general required course I would have tried to complete them before transferring into this college.


I wish I had realized how small Wheelock is. I like the small classroom sizes, however I do not like the small social aspect. There are less students at Wheelock than there were at my high school. Also, a couple hundred students are commuters, and many others go home on the weekends, which is likely why there is never anything too exciting happening on weekend days.
