4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am always impressed with greek life afftects the social atmosphere of campus how the students gets viewed by non greeks etcs. greek is the most ancient language in the universe and its also the most wide used language

4 College Junior

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Encouraging community, integrates faith with rigorous academics.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've really enjoyed my professors and peers here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: If you get connected to the network, it can be very helpful.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I have felt very safe here. There are definitely cases of sexual assault but I believe it to be less frequent than at most schools.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I've enjoyed my experiences both in the dorms and in the apartments.

3 College Senior

Athletics: Not too much average student support. Mostly friends of athletes attend the games (except homecoming obviously).

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Can be harder for students who don't come from a White Evangelical background. Professors are really, really great and invested in their students. There's a lot of room to explore what you're interested in as long as you are willing to take some risks and get to know your professors and peers.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Dorm life is fun, the RAs are usually pretty nice.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The coaches are all really great, but in my experience, the sports aren't very competitive or intense.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The classes are very challenging and thought provoking. It has caused me to think outside of my little bubble of life and think of things bigger than me. Everyone is kind and shares similar morals and values as me. Professors are awesome. There is lots of clubs and activities and events on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are kind and approachable. They will answer any question that any students have. They are heavily involved in the daily lives of their students as well, often asking how the student's club is doing. The class sizes are small, which encourage classroom discussions. The variety of courses are shocking; after talking to a few friends about classes, I find myself asking, "We have that class?" Overall, the campus is welcoming and accepting, which makes learning there more enjoyable.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Being in a relatively small town, Wheaton College is a safe campus. Public service is always around for either help or protection. I often walk outside in the middle of the night, and never once was I ever afraid of being assaulted in any way. Everything in campus is out in the open, or at least constantly watched and monitored, so the security measures taken to keep the campus safe ease the nerves of both students and faculty.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is simply amazing. I myself got to develop friendships that I could never do anywhere else. The dorms are kept exceptionally clean thanks to our hard working custodians who often stop by student's rooms for a chat. The social atmosphere is friendly and diverse. There are no set curfew hours except for the splitting of boys and girl dorms. After coming back from studying late at night, I see many people still around the lobby conversing with each other. Many of these conversations go to four o'clock in the morning. The dorms are THE place to develop meaningful relationships with one's fellow students--especially late at night.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no declared fraternity or sorority on campus as a regular college party is looked down on. However, certain clubs and classes have a little Greek life incorporated into it, but they are usually minimal.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of campus life at Wheaton College, but if you're not in sports it doesn't affect you much. The campus doesn't revolve around sports, even more so, sports are deemed separate from the college according to the students and many coaches.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wheaton College is communal to say the least. The environment is friendly, and the people embrace that friendliness. Academically, the students strive for perfection. Though the school is competitive, the close community tends to unite students rather than separate it. Wheaton College is a perfect combination of rigorous classes that benefit students and a community that encourages them to work hard.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I am not very involved in the athletics at the school. The teams are generally pretty good for a D3 school. The fan support and fan spirit is pretty low. Not many people like the football players

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Academically, Wheaton College is quite rigorous. The course workload on average is pretty hefty. The professors generally care about their students and love teaching at Wheaton. The school population is quite small, and so it is easy to find a community and support system there. However, the school greatly lacks in diversity. Most of the students are white, upper-middle class, and extremely privileged and uneducated about the way other people live in the world. I do believe Wheaton is trying to work on that though. It's an okay school, but the academics and professors make it a better school.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They have limited hours on the weekends. That is inconvenient because that is when I get sick. Safety services is a little too removed from campus, but their presence is comforting.

Health services is always on time, prompt, quick and courteous. Never had a poor experience there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Courses are pretty well organized.

Professors vary as they always do. Professors care about their students. Class sizes are relatively small. 15-20. Gened classes will be bigger 50-100+.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've heard student career prospects are pretty good after graduation. Those hire interns enjoy interns from wheaton. So if you meet with your advsior that will be easy. It just takes some work.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: They could be bigger. The in dorm atmosphere is good. I would say students should not opt in to staying in freshman dorms for a second year. Freshman can be annoying and loud, and everyone going through your experience as a sophomore is not close by.

The RA's are helpful and supportive, not strict.

The biggest beef is the room size. Definitely get a single if you can.

The words “For Christ and His Kingdom” resound through the air of Wheaton’s campus, defining Wheaton students and guiding the faculty. Statistically, Wheaton students are some of the most contented in the nation. Why? The main reason given for this love of Wheaton is, simply, the fellow students. Nowhere else will you find so many talented, passionate, genuine, and Christ-centered students gathered in one place. The people you find at Wheaton will inspire you. They will challenge you, teach you, and change your life for the better. Likewise, the professors at Wheaton are dedicated to educating the whole person. Yes, you will have to study at Wheaton. That's a fact. But you will also be given the tools necessary to use your hard-earned knowledge to make a difference in the world. The few students that express discontent generally are not at Wheaton by their own choice and are upset about the restrictions placed upon them.

The Wheaton College experience is completely unique. From a caring faculty to impressive academics, from studying and serving abroad to intense IM competition, great food, and crazy dorm life—this school offers it all. However, it must be mentioned that Wheaton is not for everybody. In fact, it is a school for a very specific group of people. Wheaton is a school for those who want to grow in their Christian faith, be challenged in every area of their lives, and impact the world in which they live. Indeed, in endorsing the Wheaton College motto, students truly to come to Wheaton “for Christ and His Kingdom.”
