Wheaton College - Illinois Reviews
I'm thrilled to have recently obtained my master’s degree from Wheaton College. The challenges that were put before us have definitely strengthened my perseverance and faith. The enthusiasm of the professors and their personal love of God have been a major highlight. Being exposed to that encouraged more enthusiasm and deeper, more analytical thinking. I also appreciate how approachable and reachable the professors have been. They have certainly been our professors, but in many cases we also have come to feel a sense of kindred spirits and friendship with them.
I absolutely love Wheaton! I've learned so much both in and out of the classroom. Every single one of my professors are full of wisdom and they are always happy to talk with you, and get to know you on a personal level. My friends have shown me what it means to love and be loved. I have been able to discover who I am and what my purpose is in a way that I never thought possible till I came to Wheaton.
First of all, the school has been very patient with my transition into the American school system (I am an American citizen who grew up in another country). This includes: the academic side of getting used to English as an academic language, the business side of turning in foreign school documents, the social side by helping make sure I was not alone, since my immediate family still lives overseas. The faculty are not only excellent teachers, but they also care about the development and eventual success of their students. As a student at Wheaton, I have had opportunities I never would have had, such as day trips to places like FERMI Labs or a Men's Glee Club tour of China. The student body has created a great community in which the students support each other in many different ways, including encouraging friendly discussions and debates on important spiritual and social topics, allowing for everyone to form their own opinions.
