    Wheaton College MA is truly my dream school. It is expensive, but we are good about providing need and merit based financial aid. Due to the size of the school, students are able to get one on one attention from professors throughout their 4 year experience. The facilities are expansive for each major, and we have a rapidly growing psychology and business department in particular. Additionally, the support system that you find here on a social basis is extensive and truly makes me feel loved and appreciated. Each professor is remarkably passionate about their subject matter and that energy is transferable to the staff and students. Speaking of the staff, those who work in the dining halls and on maintenance are kind and welcoming. We do not have greek life on campus. Regardless of this, we have a ton of things going on on campus every day. The location is also awesome if you don't mind public transportation or if you have a car. Please come visit Wheaton College MA!

    Wheaton is an excellent school academically. All of my classes are small, and I've been able to build relationships with my professors over my 4 years here. There's a wide range of classes to choose from, which is nice. I've had room in the curriculum to complete two majors and still take some elective courses just because I'm interested in them. Everyone at Wheaton is very open and friendly. I would say the biggest thing is that it's not great to live on campus and not have a car. There's not a lot to do within walking distance, so most people drive to get off campus. There are always a ton of events going on on-campus, though!
    If you're looking for the classic liberal arts experience, Wheaton won't let you down. Wheaton is an extremely academically focused campus, so if you're looking to party, save your money for somewhere else. The students, staff, and faculty really promote education first. The professors are passionate and really want to see their students succeed. And students create the campus life, with an array of clubs putting on multiple events and meetings a month so there's always something to do!
