    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!

    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!
    Wheaton has its problems, like every other school, but overall is a good experience. The professors are great, very friendly, and care about you as a person. The computer science department is growing faster in students than in faculty and resources. There is a large focus on the humanities and funding those which sometimes feels like the sciences are not getting the same attention. A new dorm is being built to compensate for the increase in school population which should remedy some of the forced triples. However, the theme houses need more consistent maintenance and updating. The athletic teams are in a strong conference, but success is better seen with individual teams than the department as a whole. The field house may need some updating to refinish the track and the roof. There is no outdoor track, but there is a nice turf field.
