Wheaton College - Illinois Reviews
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.
I absolutely love Wheaton College! I decided to come to Wheaton College instead of others I had toured because I truly saw the Christian community on campus and it felt so genuine. After finishing my first year at Wheaton, I love it so much more than I ever thought I could! The classes are challenging and quality; the Professors are engaging and approachable; the food is extremely impressive and delicious; the campus is absolutely beautiful. It is a Christian college, so if "party scene" is defined in contemporary terms as having many campus parties involving alcohol and drugs, then the "party scene" is small and almost unheard of (it's all underground). If "party scene" is defined in my own terms as how much fun is had on campus and in the surrounding area (including Chicago), I give the party scene 5 stars!!! I have so much fun at Wheaton and it's all completely legal. It's just such an amazing place to be!!! I do recommend a tour in July, it's sooo beautiful.
