Review Wheaton College - Massachusetts
Wheaton is diverse in interests of students which adds to our collaborative community. Whether you're a poet, an athlete, a scientist, an artist or a philosopher, there's a niche for you here. Some aspects are definitely better than others -- such as, the food certainly isn't what draws you in. But the student body, the faculty, and the professors are! Overall, it's a happy places here where students hang out in hammocks in front of res halls and play frisbee in the Dimple when there's good weather. And when it's a typical day in the New England winter, you can find students indoors hanging out drinking wine.
Diversity on campus is growing, but it can still be a challenge to be a student of color. Wheaton is 70% Caucasian, and many are upper-middle class, and many students come from New England (it's a small school and publicity is growing, but it still mostly attracts from the area). Many people on campus are liberal and try to be conscious of the experiences of people of color, but there are entitled jerks or people who are just ignorant of other's experiences. But the students of color organizations (Black Student Association, Distinguished Women of Color Collective, Renaissance House, and a few more) are really visible on campus and do awesome work! There isn't a huge variety of (out) students of differing sexual orientations, but this tends to shift as students become more comfortable identifying themselves throughout their 4 years.
Marijuana is really popular, but not really any other drugs. There's some selling of prescription pills around finals, and you'll find Molly on Spring Weekend, but it's a tame campus. Alcohol is definitely the most popular. However, there's not a lot of pressure to drink or smoke. It's totally cool if you're sober or want to have a drink but not get drunk. The policies are enforced if students are stupid. If Public Safety hears loud music and sees 30 people in a double room in underclassmen dorms or smells smoke, they can't ignore it. But if you happen to be in the woods while smoking or pre-game in your room then get crazy at a house party, you'll be fine. That being said, I've gotten away with some big parties in my 4 years, so just know your RA's strictness level and don't be rude to Public Safety!
