I have enjoyed my freshman year at Wheelock. I chose the school because it was small, close to home and offered the major I was interested in. The professors are nice, and willing to give extra help when needed, and my advisor has been amazing. It is not a party school and has a very tiny campus, but it is located among a lot of other colleges and universities. Our school is merging with Boston University in June 2018, so next year, I will be a BU student. This will mean a much larger campus and even more opportunity, which I am looking forward to. I think being on a small campus was the right choice for me this year though, and helped to ease my transition to college from high school.

Theres no health center on Wheelock campus. This is annoying.

The school is very strict. On the weekends, public safety sits outside of dorms, I'm convinced, to get drunk students in trouble. There is an almost overwhelming force of public safety officers on campus and its so unnecessary.

I feel so safe on campus. There hasn't been one time I've felt unsafe- even at 3am walking (slightly) drunk alone across campus back to my dorm. Public safety officials have made me feel uncomfortable with their overwhelming and unnecessary presence. Let me do my thang without you watching me all the time!
As a sophomore at Wheelock College, I have had the opportunity to experience many of the advantages and disadvantages of attending the college. Something that I love about my college is the student-faculty ratio. This allows the relationship between students and teachers to be in personal level. However, something that I struggle with is the communication between students and administrators. I have emailed a member of the administration and not gotten a response back. Even though I value physical interactions, my busy scheduled prevents me to ask some questions directly. I enjoy attending Wheelock college and would like to graduate one day.
