What I do not like about Wheaton College, that should be the question. As an international student, Wheaton and its community has accepted me as one more. All the friends that I have met here that I know are going to be friends for life. Coming from a different country, I was very worried about not feeling like at home or that I was going to miss my country a lot. However, the coziness of the campus makes me feel like I'm always home and the people here, including students, faculty, and staff, make sure that I feel that way too. Overall, I think Wheaton is an incredible college and if I had to go over the college application and all of that again, I would certainly choose Wheaton over any other college in the whole country!
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.
