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.
Some people here drink and smoke weed, but most don't.

The school is VERY strict on alcohol and weed use. Even if they smell it and don't see it, you will get fined which I find absurd.

We're young and in college, we want to have fun and experiment. I've been here for a semester and a half now, and the only times Ive drank are with a small group in a dorm. But we had to be very careful. I've smoked a few times, but I get super paranoid because even if I smell, I'll get a big fat fine and have to go to mandatory drug counseling. The charges for drinking are less than smoking, which is kind of messed. This is Massachusetts, weed is decriminalized.

This is not the typical college experience. If you want to party, drink with your friends, smoke some ganj and have a little bit of harmless fun without fearing the consequences of getting in trouble, do not come here. Go to a state school- like me next semester. See ya never, Wheelock!
