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.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The students don't support the sports a lot. But the coaches and players are awesome. My coach was super helpful and supportive. My team was super chill and fun. Relatively we were mediocre.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Wheaton College is a great school for those who want to learn about the world from a christian lens. My favorite experiences have been discussing theology and if the Christians and Muslims do worship the same God in my christian thought class. Wheaton does a great job about hosting panels of people's experiences (including those of gay students).

Everyone is super nice and it seems like we are on the same team.

There does seem to be a lot of white guilt on campus and lack of economic diversity. These can be annoying and troublesome.

The food is great. The weather sucks 8 months out of the year. If you're a sophmore don't opt to room in fischer dorm- it can be a long walk in the winter.

Be intentional about reaching out to professors. You will learn a lot from them.

I'd give it a solid A-

Overall Experience: The recruiters are always looking for new faces to give jobs and interns too.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great. It's a very social and encouraging enviorment.

2 College Student

Greek Life: I don't support the whole drinking and partying aspect of greek life.

4 College Student

Athletics: All of our sports teams are excellent and have amazing coaches leading them. The fan support is even more spectacular. We are all like one big family.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: My overall school experience has been all great and positive. If I could do it over I'd pick the same school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel great on campus as far as safety goes because I always see a public safety car around and they are out all hours of the night, constantly watching over us for safety but not in a creepy way.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are very interesting and the professors bring a lot to the table and make the classes enjoyable.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from this school is irreplaceable. We here at Wheaton learn about how to think out side of the box, learn how to be creative as well as having a strong work ethic present.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's great living on campus because we are so close to all of the classes. The freshman have the furthest walk to the most central area on campus which is only 3 minutes. There really isn't anything to complain about.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: As probably most schools, there is a great love for football, basketball, and soccer but not as much for swimming, track, cross country etc. It is like most schools, but I wish there was a greater attendance at all events/games/matches.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Wheaton College is an amazing college. There is a wide diversity of students, though could be improved, the student body is very accepting of others. There are more than enough clubs to join, intramural leagues, and amazing teachers who care about their students.

View student contributors

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.”
