Wheaton College - Massachusetts Reviews

All of my professors have been incredibly enthusiastic and passionate about their work, which translates very well in the classroom. They have also been astoundingly devoted to helping their students outside of the classroom. Even a professor who retired years ago still meets with me to discuss research and help me with my projects! I can’t say enough good things about the academics here. I love the political climate as well. It’s such a welcoming, inclusive community dedicated to becoming better and better everyday.

Additionally-the dorms are huge compared to most univeristy dorms! Especially the ones for freshmen, so fret not about not being able to fit all your stuff!

Generally really high quality academics, sometimes too rigorous or too easy. Extremely cliquey/pretentious and full of proud social justice warriors. Lots of racial tension on campus from most perspectives. Diversity mostly comes from international students. Absolutely nothing to do around campus or Norton, especially at night. If you're going to Boston or Providence, it's a half or whole day ordeal. This school is extremely deceptive with its marketing and is not worth anywhere near the full price tag. If you need it, they give great financial aid, otherwise be prepared to pay too much. A lot of the kids went to prep/boarding schools and are extremely socially awkward and sheltered. Feels like there are less boys than the 40:60 ratio because most of them hide in their rooms. Varsity sports and extracurriculars can be fun, it depends what you make of it. Public Safety is extremely nosey and are always unnecessarily present on an already safe campus. So glad I left.
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!
